“Celebrate your neighborhood this summer and host or attend a block party!” says Sharon Buhr, Chair of On the Move. The 19 non-profit and governmental organizations that make up On the Move are encouraging everyone in Valley City and Barnes County to get to know their neighbors.

Residents are encouraged to get together with their surrounding neighbors and host a block party this summer or in the early fall, either in their backyards or on the street. If a group wishes to have the street blocked off they can go to City Hall and sign a form to do so. There’s no charge.
