Aspinwall Neighbors is currently planning an event to mark the anniversary of the first “Porch Toast” as we hit the one year mark in the pandemic. As you may know, the first porch toast was sparked by a neighbor who wanted to help the community feel connected while physical distancing. Since that first Saturday, many community members have continued the now weekly tradition of toasting to neighbors from their porch (even over the winter!).
Saturday, March 20th will mark the one year anniversary, and Aspinwall Neighbors plans to invite all of our neighbors back out on their porches, stoops and balconies to once again raise their glasses in a show of community strength. We also hope to use this as an opportunity to promote the local restaurants and shops that make our community so special. All Aspinwall businesses are invited to participate by including a featured item for Aspinwall Neighbors to include in our event promotion. There is no cost to participate, and the featured item could be anything you like - a drink special packaged to go, an appetizer to share, a small discount on a specific item, a $1 off, a gift card promotion, porch decor, drinkware, the perfect gift for a neighbor you miss, etc.
Participating businesses will be included in all Aspinwall Neighbors communications, including social media posts and emails. We will also provide individualized graphics for each business to use in their own communications if they choose.
If you would like to participate, simply complete this online form by end of day March 5th. There is a spot on the form to note if advance orders are required.
