Nothing but superlatives for the Windekekouter’s past neighborhood party. The residents of the Windekekouter gathered for the sixth edition of the neighborhood party for the first time in the simply beautiful garden of An and Benny. There was immediately a lot of celebration in this earthly paradise. Congratulations to the neighborhood committee. Marijke Galle, Rebecca Gerard, Caroline Ongena, Hans De Neve, Peter Lievens and Wim Dujardin have again worked hard to make ‘Win – t – Oost’ a wonderful neighborhood party. And it was. After Rebecca’s warm welcome and the reporter’s word of thanks, there was an immediate festive atmosphere. The residents of the Windekouter needed the neighborhood party, corona had thrown a spanner in the works for too long. The ‘summer edition’ was a great success. Meet, enjoy, de-stress, experience.
A great initiative by the ‘Win – t – Oost’ committee to bring the residents of the Windekekouter together. The creators Marijke, Rebecca, Caroline, Hans, Peter and Wim deliberately do not touch the success formula. And it feels good that the neighborhood party is back. The enthusiasm was great. In 2016, the ‘magnificent six’ launched the first neighborhood party. And how? The first edition was a great success. For the sixth time, the large Windekekouter family gathered at the festive tables. Better a good neighbor than a distant friend. There was an abundance of cake, coffee, and well-maintained drinks, and delicious sandwiches, and there was a lot of fun and atmosphere. ‘t Gijzelaarke’ (tripel) went in smoothly, you got the stars for free. Many residents of the Windekekouter signed up and did not want to miss the rebirth of the neighborhood party. The purpose of the committee continues to stimulate the meeting. Six years ago, many residents of the Windekekouter did not know each other, the neighborhood party again seemed to be the ideal opportunity to strengthen ties in the Windekekouter and to kick-start solidarity. The project of the organizing ‘dream team’ is brimming with good intentions. All too often people live side by side without really knowing who their closest neighbors are. The residents of the Windekouter now also found it easier to talk. Many residents were already present at the previous editions and now wanted to be there again for the summer edition. They come for the convivial moments, the atmosphere,… And gratifying, new residents of the Windekekouter immediately hooked up. There was a lot of festive fun in the beautifully landscaped garden, everything went well, a blissful sun, the soothing decor, cheerful residents of the Windekekouter. Nothing makes more sense than a party with neighbors.
The neighborhood party, a plan with great social value. It encourages a sense of togetherness, creates a good feeling, a concept that brings people together. No wonder there was so much ‘feel good’. Beautiful scene, with many from the street at the table, the feeling of being one big Windekekouter family. And apparently the residents of the Windekkouter get along well. A very successful edition. The summer hit 22 by Margriet Hermans was very appropriate, ‘stay tuned’. The reactions were unanimously positive. Rightly much appreciation for the ‘golden six’. Conviviality at the neighborhood party. Marijke, Rebecca, Caroline, Hans, Peter and Wim and their staff, you did a great job. Congratulations, you get a kiss with lots of ribbons, because we like you so much. (mvdv, photos ddl)
