Concept of Community

08/26/2021 11:18 AM | Swati Gore (Administrator)

David Chavis did significant research a few years ago on the concept of community.  He and his research partner, Kien Lee, found “that a community is not a place, a building, or an organization; nor is it an exchange of information over the Internet. Community is both a feeling and a set of relationships among people. People form and maintain communities to meet common needs. Members of a community have a sense of trust, belonging, safety, and caring for each other. They have an individual and collective sense that they can, as part of that community, influence their environments and each other.  That treasured feeling of community comes from shared experiences and a sense of—not necessarily the actual experience of— shared history. As a result, people know who is and isn’t part of their community. This feeling is fundamental to human existence.”

Are you part of the Indian Hills community?  Do you want to be part of the community?

If you are interested in serving on the Board of Indian Hills Civic Association, please contact me or any Board member.  Currently we are looking for a Treasurer and a Director of External Affairs for 2022-2023.  Or if you just want to get more involved in our community please let one of us know.  There is plenty to do. Have a great and safe rest of the summer.
