University Place, Washington
Welcome to the University Place Community Page! Back in 2015 I started the Facebook group Friends of University Place because I believe having a strong connection with your community and neighbors is very important.
I’ve been a part of this town for over 10 years and I’ve noticed over the past couple years there’s a lack of community events.
Although I’m just another community member, I’d love to get some events and activities started here again. I’m done sitting back and watching our beautiful little town/city get rid of all these be-loved traditional events. And other towns/cities around us adapting to these unprecedented times.
We need to step it up neighbors of University Place!
Events/Activities Around Town
Let’s get some fun planned around town. I’ll be adding more in the coming months. If you’ve got an event/activity idea please leave me a message/email.
Halloween and Fall Painted Rocks »
Now thru October 31
Let’s spread some fun holiday cheer around town! Please join me in painting some Halloween and/or Fall rocks to hide around town for our community to find them. Looking for some inspiration?
If you’d like to post hints on where you hid them, share on this post. And we’d love for you to share when you find a rock as well!
Houses Decorated for Halloween »
Let’s get all those spooky and decorated homes/yards on a map! We’ll keep it simple and easy this year, but maybe next year we can hold a contest for the best decorated house/yard and/or make a route. Grab your loved ones and hop in the car for some holiday fun.
Please email me your address or maybe you are aware of a house that goes all out to decorate for the holiday. I’ll be frequently adding to this google map of decorated yards/houses. Keep in mind I won’t be disclosing any names along with the addresses.
*Remember to drive carefully and be respectful!
You’ve Been Boo’ed »
Let’s spread some Halloween fun to our neighbors! I originally saw this idea in my local Buy Nothing group and it was a lot of fun. “You’ve Been Boo’ed” is very similar to secret santa, but you’re putting together a bag/bucket/ect of Halloween goodies instead.
If you’d like to play “You’ve Been Boo’ed” with us this year, please go to this post and comment with something that you’d enjoy receiving this holiday. Then message me your address. Once you’ve chosen someone to BOO, ask me for their address. Then anonymously drop off on their porch along with a note saying “You’ve Been Boo’ed”, here’s a free printable if you need. After you’ve delivered please PM me(the admin) so I can tell the neighbor to check their porch.
Have fun booing neighbors! And please remember to be respectful and careful. Gifted items are given freely and are not required to match wishes.
