Hello Neighbor is an initiative with a simple purpose – to help residents working or attending college in the Alexandria Area integrate into the community. Making new connections can be challenging. Hello Neighbor can help with that!

Coming back to Alex — and bringing others along

Jordyn recently made a decision that many people who grew up in Alexandria, Minnesota, eventually make. She moved back to her hometown.

Come to our next event!

Join us at our year-round events designed for residents to connect. Whether you’re new or have been here for years due to work, college, or supporting a partner, these gatherings offer a chance to meet like-minded community members. Come make new friends along the way!

Alex Area employees, college students, and supporting partners… mark your calendars for the second Tuesday of each month!

Heads Up:

  • Monthly meet-ups are open to individuals aged 18 and above, unless otherwise indicated.
  • Each event is infused with an ice breaker or “get-to-know-you” activity. Come prepared to meet new people and have some fun!
  • Come dressed as you are, no need to change after work.
  • Free food is only on the menu if the flyer says so. If you’re thinking about dinner, better grab a bite before you show up or bring some moolah with you.
