You are invited to the Squire Park Community Council quarterly meeting and annual B.B.Q.this Saturday, July 14, at the CAMP Firehouse, 722 18th Avenue.
The meeting, starting at 10 A.M., features Pamela Banks, the recently-named head of the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle. Banks will talk about the Urban League and her plans for “rebuilding this amazing organization.” SPCC hopes that Central District neighbors will take this opportunity to meet the executive director of this organization important to the community.
Also, Andrea Brenneke and Compassionate Seattle will facilitate a discussion around productive ways for community members to communicate. Compassionate Seattle “empowers communities to transform problems, conflicts, and differences into opportunities for meaningful connection and action.” All are invited to take advantage of this opportunity to talk to neighbors in person.
The meeting will be immediately followed by a B.B.Q. in the plaza and park adjacent to the CAMP Firehouse. Burgers, hot dogs, salads, and beverages will be there — for you. Don’t miss it.
