Wedgwood Neighborhood Exchange hosts orientation on May 24
We are fortunate to live in a neighborhood with such a wealth of skills, interests, and compassion. When these assets are shared locally, our community grows stronger and doors open to new community initiatives.
Several of your Wedgwood neighbors have been meeting regularly to discuss ways to facilitate this type of community building. Each of us is enthusiastic about the potential of a "neighborhood exchange" system to strengthen bonds among neighbors.
The neighborhood exchange we envision would provide:
* an organized and flexible way for neighbors to share and exchange skills and resources
* opportunities to participate in Exchange potlucks and other events
* a directory of goods and services offered by Exchange members
* a great way to meet your neighbors while meeting your needs!
In the last few months, we have researched examples of existing exchange systems and have developed a model to try out in a pilot project. We believe Wedgwood is well-suited for a vital neighborhood exchange and welcome your participation.
For those interested in finding out more about the Wedgwood Neighborhood Exchange and how to participate in the pilot project, we are hosting a free orientation dinner and meeting on Thursday, May 24, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Wedgwood Presbyterian Church, (NE 80th St and 35th Ave NE).
For more details and to RSVP, please contact Julie Willaford at 525-8521 or email@example.com.
