Keeping Community Close to Home

Importance of community

This BC Day we celebrate community!

Communities are important because they allow people to interact with each other, share experiences, develop important and lasting relationships and work toward a collective goal. Without communities, people would live in isolation within their homes.

The world has changed dramatically in the last decade with the pervasiveness of social media and online and artificial experiences. 
While we spend so much time “Online”  many crave an “IRL” (In Real Life) experience.  Perhaps this is because we used to gather more frequently in churches, neighbourhoods, schools organizations and with our families and neighbours to foster that sense of community.  To connect.

I encourage you to ….yes RE/MAX is advocating that you leave your home oasis in favour of searching out community this long holiday weekend!
