Block Party & Poetry Slam – June 7

We are partnering with TRAILS to celebrate our new location with a block party for our new neighbors! We want to have food, a poetry slam, a bounce house, and other things for kids to do, but we’ll need plenty of help. Here’s how you can get involved:

  1. Kid’s Activities – we need people to plan and/or volunteer to help out with things like face painting, games, etc.
  2. Set up and tear down on the day of the event
  3. Food Prep – this includes people willing to be stationed at the grills, but also people who are willing to bring side dishes and desserts.
  4. Poetry Slam – share your poems by doing spoken word or reading them!

If you are interested in getting involved with any of these areas, please reply to this email.
