Proud Neighbors of Collingswood is in the process of making plans for its final year. This civic organization has been in existence since 1983 and has endeavored to improve Collingswood by promoting historic restoration and downtown business revitalization.
In addition to donating a large portion of its assets to the Knight Park Caretaker’s House and the Collings Knight House, the group is also earmarking a stipend as seed money for a future organization whose ideals are in alignment with those of Proud Neighbors. In this way the group hopes to hand the torch to new volunteers who will continue to develop an awareness of, and interest in, historic preservation.
Over the next year, Proud Neighbors will announce events that will celebrate its 40 years and give thanks to the hundreds of volunteers that have made the work of the group possible.

Proud Neighbors House Tour & Porch Brunch has been postponed until the Sunday AFTER Mother’s Day , May 16, 2021. The Proud Neighbors of Collingswood extends our wishes for your safety and good health.
The Proud Neighbors of Collingswood Porch Brunch and House Tour showcases the charm of our homes and tranquil gardens. Brunch offers culinary delights on vintage porches in May on the sunday after Mother’s Day. The event is a tribute to our historic architecture and neighborhood restoration during National Historic Preservation Month. The Porch Brunch and House Tour will be held on Sunday, May 17, 2020. Consider showing your house or garden. Planning requires that participating homes and gardens must be secured well in advance so please reach out to us if you are (or someone you know might be) interested! Homes on the tour reflect a variety of housing styles, architecture, and neighborhood locations. Some homes feature historic architectural characteristics, while others have a decorator’s flair or a cozy, colorful ambiance. If you have a front porch, consider hosting brunch. We provide all the food, supplies, and staff. Proud Neighbors volunteers will staff your home or garden and many of our members have shown their homes on the tour. Even if you are just a little curious, we can put you in touch with others that have participated so that they can describe the experience. Info@ProudNeighborsOfCollingswood.org
