  1. First A.M.E.’s Future Community Center Needs You!
    Saturday, June 11, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
    3201 E. Republican St.

    As part of NeighborWorks Week, the Central Area Development Association (CADA) and First A.M.E. Church (F.A.M.E.) are co-sponsoring a community work party to clear the grounds of F.A.M.E.’s future community center (formerly the MLK Jr. Elementary School). Tools, gloves and refreshments will be provided. Volunteer by contacting Erica Porter of CADA at (206) 328-6987.

  2. Timing is impeccable. Remind me again how F.A.M.E got the rights to the MLK School and what you’ve done for the community prior to this little event.

  3. Am I missing something but this little event is just the community voluntering to help F.A.M.E. cleanup the school that we paid for them to buy? The city is providing the tools, gloves, trash removal etc. Silliness.

  4. Honestly. Who are these people trying to kid? This is a literal slap in the face and the only reason anything’s being done now is because of the public outcry at how asinine the original deal was. I have a right mind to walk down there and to tell every single volunteer the true story behind F.A.M.E and their corrupt ways.

  5. I’m loving these little “weekend roundup” posts that have been up the last two weeks. I hope they keep coming – it’s great to see so much going on in the community all in one post. Thanks!

  6. Jomama – be cautious walking down there to talk to the volunteers, since they are literally slapping people in the face.

  7. Thanks for weekend post & updating our Hood with all the positive things we are working on. Keep it rolling….and looking forward to seeing everyone out and about enjoying these wonderful events with our community!!!
