  1. Hi
    I’d like to get more involved in our neighborhood, and have lived on 83rd and Freemont for 10 years. How can I help get something moving on abandoned/neglected property at 7706 Greenwood. This has been an eyesore for the entire 10 years we’ve lived here, and such a waste in general.
    Love to help if I could.

  2. Any one of you the lead on the Library Park? Fossil Free PhinneyWood and the Citizen Climate Lobby are doing a Pop-Up Park event at the Library Park site. Would anyone like to participate by setting up a table there re: the park? Sept 17th Sat Noon-4pm.

  3. Hi. My name is Ben. I am a member of the board of the Eastlake Community Council. We are investigating options for implementing a new database system. We would like the system to provide a wide variety of capabilities including: tracking annual membership fee status & updating; filtering/queries for skills and volunteer information; name, contact info, membership status for individual and multi-person addresses; non-member/business contact and volunteer information and more.
    I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to speak with a person at the Greenwood CC (or any other individual) who is knowledgeable about such systems. I would also be interested to learn what system your CC uses, be it an Excel workbook, an Access database system, CiviCRM or other.
    Thank you for your consideration of the above.
    I noted comments at your website about MailPress and MailChimp.
