SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WWLP) – It’s an American tradition: Block Parties to bring people in the same neighborhood together.
And today there was a business block party in Springfield.
The Pioneer Valley Credit Union threw their 4th annual block party and invited its customers and business neighbors on Brookdale Drive in Indian Orchard.
The smell of barbecue filled the industrial park, as neighboring companies enjoyed hot dogs, hamburgers and traditional cook-out food.
Faruma Williams works just down the street. He said it’s a great way to get to know other businesses in the area, “Oh I think It’s wonderful. We don’t have a lot of opportunity to come together in this type of situation, It’s wonderful.”
The Pioneer Valley Credit Union took a page right out of the hospitality book of good neighboring.
The Pioneer Valley Credit Union told 22News, the cookout draws more people each year.
