The City of Thomasville hosted a "Neighborhood Improvement Project' to bring the community together.

Paul McIntyre lives in Thomasville and says he had a great time.

Continues McIntyre, "[I] like the music, enjoy the people, I enjoy the food and all."

Free food, a DJ, and even a DUNK-A-COP game attracted locals for hours of entertainment.

The city says it's important to foster a bond among community members.

One volunteer explained, "This is just kind of to help them get together and have fun."

The Thomasville Police Department helped distribute free food and grill hotdogs.

Attendee Tiffany Pollard was pleased with the city's efforts to give back.

She says giving away canned goods and other non-perishables can really help during tough economic times.

She points out, "You never know when someone is hungry or need anything, so I think this is a good way to give back to the community."

Part of people enjoying themselves at the event involved staying hydrated.

The city of Thomasville provided free drinks -- and lots of them.

A giant sprinkler and water slide also kept the younger children -- and brave adults -- cool.

Despite the high temperatures, none of the event-goers were victims of the heat..

The City of Thomasville sponsors community events throughout the year. For more information on the next one, check out their calendar of events at Rose.net.

    gaboy, really? There are no longer any public pools, it's hot as blazes and you would deny people of the community the chance to come together and be neighborly? I think the City of Thomasville did a wonderful thing with this project. I'm all about cutting wasteful spending too, but part of what makes our city a great place to live is the community spirit. (If we adopt your attitude maybe we should just cancel Rose Show too, and use that money to pave roads?) Geeze..... this type of spending is not what we should be complaining about. Now the downtown condo that the City bought.....THAT was a WASTE! I'd like an investigation into THAT. Search the public records and you will find that it was sold to the city by a corportation that is owned by one of the family members of a city council member! Unbelievable that public officials can get by with such grifting!!!
