Collective problem solving, November 11 (BTW, you'll make new friends, too)

Second Saturdays are now Second Thursdays (at least for the next few months).   The purpose of the events?   To connect with old friends and meet some new ones who call Ward 7 or 8 home, to support a local business and to discuss solutions to challenges that we all encounter in our neighborhoods.

The next Second Thursday is November 11 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at Big Chair Coffee and Grill (2122 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave SE).   The topic for the evening is community participation.   What motivates you to attend community meetings where decisions are being made that involve your neighborhood?   What prevents you from attending a community meeting? What could community associations do to attract participants and retain them?   Has the recent election of Mayor-elect Gray and Council Chairman-elect Brown, as well as the advisory neighborhood commissioners, inspired you to become more involved in your community?

More information is available from Kelsi Bracmort via email.
