The dates are Friday 5/29 6p-9p to power wash and prep the intersection and then Block Party Saturday 5/30 10a (some of us will be out there much earlier) to 9p for the day long community gathering, and if needed for finishing touches Sunday 5/31 8a-12p; Our rain dates are 6/5-6/7.
It’s clear that this fun community event could not happen without the contributions, energy and time of many. That said here are a few things we could use a hand with or will need for party day.
- The core organizing team could use a few more dedicated souls to assist with the pre-planning that leads up to the event, such as picking up food, supplies, barricades, obtaining signatures, distributing flyers, assisting with other communications, etc.
- Are you or do you know of any musicians or entertainers that would like to perform during the event? At the minimum we could use someone that has access to a PA system/ sound system we could plug in an iPod to.
- Do you have a gift for connecting with kiddos? We’re Looking for fun ways to include the smaller participants. Puppet or magic show perhaps?
- Supplies for borrowing or open to permanent donation for the years to come: Two staple guns, 3-4 long folding tables, 3-4 pop up canopies, tarps, water hoses, very long extension cords, yogurt containers.
