For many, 2020 drew a line in the sand to not turn the clock back to 2019, but to step forward into a better future. On July 25-27, 2021, Norfolk neighbors stepped forward to Tell a New Story about their neighborhoods at our mini-NBN Conference, Mermaid Tales 2021. It consisted of three activities.
NBN Conference Mixer (in-person) (Sunday, July 25, 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.) Neighborhood Services relaunched in-person events with a bang! An evening of networking, music, food, and a conference kick-off from keynote speaker, Marla Newman, Director of Community Development in Winston-Salem was held at Norfolk's scenic Pagoda and Gardens.
