The Porch Sitters Union was formed to celebrate the fine art of Porch sitting.
There is nothing like the experience of sitting on a classic American Porch, in a comfortable rocker, on a hot Summer’s day all while sipping your favorite beverage- adult or otherwise. Simply relaxing, taking in the views and enjoying an ever so slight breeze that is just strong enough to keep you feeling good.
Porch sitting is a leisure activity that is a staple in most urban areas of our country. It helps contribute to a welcoming sense of community. It is the only place where you can feel like you are outside and inside at the same time; out with all of the neighbors and alone reading a book at the same time. The Porch is a magical place where you are transported to a better state of mind and memories are born.
We look at Porch sitting as a broad term. While a classic Porch can be ideal, we believe it is not entirely necessary to enjoy Porch sitting. Whether you are on a smaller portico, a veranda, a terrace, front porch, back porch, heck, even the garage with the door open while watching the kids at play, that counts.
Whatever you’re doing, it can wait. Take a load off and come sit a spell. Everyone is welcome. Basic membership is free. You can conduct your own meetings, too. It’s easy. Invite some friends and/or family to come over, or not, and sit on the Porch. Shoot the breeze or sit back and feel the breeze. It makes no never mind. There is no agenda except to say, relax, reflect and rejoice.
If you enjoy Porch sitting, you’re in. Welcome to the Porch Sitters Union.
