For smaller communities this BIRTHDAY CALENDAR :: FREEBIE should do the trick. Jordan over at Polkadot Prints designed this free printable.
4 simple ways to celebrate at your community
- Give residents a shout out on your Facebook page for on their birthday (with their permission of course)!
- Ask residents to pin pictures of their celebrations with a hash tag that you can track and repin them on your pinterest community board. (example; #_____ celebrations)
- One day every month celebrate all your residents birthdays with a cake and party. Invite all your residents sing Happy Birthday and have all of the names of residents who had birthdays that month on the cake.
- Give residents a card and a balloon on their Birthday. Especially if you have helium a single balloon filled with confetti makes a great gift. (Even without helium a balloon still signals a party and most apartment communities have them.)
