Our garden party PAC fundraiser is this Thursday, June 19th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at 3000 W. 29th Ave. The back gate will be open so you can go right around to the garden in the back. It is a potluck, so we kindly ask that you bring a dish if you can. We will also have our extra T-shirts available for anyone who would like to buy one.
Our T-shirts should be done before our meeting June 4th, so they will be available then. If you have already purchased one, you can pick it up at the meeting. If you have not already ordered one, you can purchase one at the meeting and take it home with you. Although they are blue, it would be great to see us wearing them at the Run for Women on Saturday, June 7th.
NAACP Anchorage and Alaska Federation of Natives are hosting a community picnic and voter registration drive this Sunday, May 18th 1:00-5:00 p.m. at Lion’s Park in Mountain View. This is a great volunteer opportunity for those of you who are interested in registering voters. Feel free to e-mail us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to Bettye Davis, Tam Agosti-Gisler, and Kameron Perez-Verdia for coming to our monthly meeting last week and telling us so much about education! It was very interesting!
We will have some Anchorage School Board Members at our May 7th meeting to discuss education, which has been a very hot topic this legislative session. If you have questions about education in Alaska, I highly recommend coming to this meeting. Dinner will be at 5:30 p.m. and the meeting will start at 6:00 at 3801 Centerpoint Dr, just off 36th Ave between Arctic & C St. See you then!
