It’s All About You & Your Neighbors!

 

Lafayette Social is a magazine created for and by the residents of Lafayette. This is where neighbors can share their stories with one another. It is intended to be a reflection of our town and its residents’ different interests, passions, and activities. Why share? Because it’s fun and it helps to foster a greater sense of community throughout town. You can also nominate your neighbors. The guidelines are simple: keep it local, positive, uplifting, and inclusive.

Recommended submissions:

PICTURES – Everyone loves pictures! Parties, graduations, vacations, around town, holiday gatherings, or just going to the beach or taking a hike! Pictures are an easy way to contribute to Lafayette Social as well as bring smiles to your fellow neighbors’ faces.

NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS – Shared planned activities in your neighborhood, such as parades, block parties, barbecues, neighborhood cleanups, school picnics, fundraisers, pool parties, planting daffodils, etc. 

WHERE ARE THEY NOW – This feature is where we celebrate young adults that grew up in Lafayette and have moved on to start their career, or to explore other passions and adventures.

MEET YOUR NEIGHBORS – Have you ever wished you knew your neighbors better? Well, here is a great way to get to know more. Each family has the opportunity to be featured. If you don’t have any great family photos to share, we can arrange a free, mini photo session. Your family will look amazing in print! 

PETS WITH PERSONALITY – Introduce your pet to your neighbors. Whether you have traditional or a more unusual pet, we’d love to hear all about what makes them such special members of your family.

HOME & GARDEN – Share your new addition, beautifully decorated rooms, gardens, or outside living spaces with your neighbors. You can also flatter a neighbor by nominating them for this special spotlight! 

CHARITABLE PASSIONS – We all have our special charities and community passions. Spotlight your favorite charity so others in Lafayette can learn about the organization and better understand why it is so important.
