Let’s admit it – August was kind of a downer, weather-wise. But so far September is looking pretty fantastic, with my desktop widget showing 5 solid days of sunshine, with temperatures in the 70s and lower 80s. We need to get out there and enjoy it before the winter gray sets in.
Here’s a few things that are on the neighborhood calendar for you to check out:
The Central Area Chamber of Commerce is holding a free seminar for neighborhood businesses on Saturday from 10am – 2pm. They’ve got four speakers scheduled, covering credit, taxes, marketing, and financing. And even if you’re already an expert in those areas, how about using it to network and meet some of the other local business owners?
Or if the world of business isn’t your thing, how about a nice walk? The friendly folks at Feet First are hosting a free neighborhood walk on Saturday, starting at 10:30 in the morning. You can grab one of their great new maps, meet other walking neighbors, and checkout what’s happening around the neighborhood. Meet the group at Odessa Brown Clinic at 2101 E. Yesler Way.
After the walk, you can head over to the Douglass-Truth library branch and check out the recent renovations. They’re celebrating the end of the project that funded the remodel there and at other libraries around the city, and the architects that were in charge of the Douglass-Truth branch will be there to answer your questions. If you haven’t been in to see it yet, I’d recommend a quick tour. It’s pretty cool to see how they melded old building with new.
Traffic alert: the Huskies are scheduled to play the #3 ranked OK Sooners at 4:45pm, so you’ll want to avoid any unnecessary trips to that part of town on Saturday afternoon and night. You might also want to steer clear of any Husky fans once the game is over…
