Activity Lists From Outside Your Community Hot
When you think about event planning at your community, you don't have to be restricted to events that you host yourself! Any community can leverage events in the area, but most communities simply don't. So by keeping tabs on what is going on in the surrounding community, as well as within your own community, you will be able to easily and inexpensively expand your event calendar! Just make sure to really understand your residents, so you can pull together a list that caters to their interests.
Fortunately, a lot of areas already have published lists of special events you can use to flesh out your own idea list. Your local newspaper, city and community Facebook groups and fan pages, Pinterest pages, and a variety of other locations will help you. In fact, if you can put in some time researching to start off with, you should be able to pull a weekly activity and event list with very little time or effort.
Here is an example of a list we receive in Houston, and would be a great source of events to pass along to residents!
