Creating Change in Your Community: Groundswell NW's Annual Meeting

What: Groundswell NW invites community leaders and anyone interested in learning how to inspire grassroots change in their community to our 2013 Annual Meeting on Sunday, April 7 from 6 – 8 pm at the Sunset Hill Community Club. Featured speakers include Pomegranate Center founder, Milenko Matanovic, and Dawn Hemminger, East Ballard Community Association leader. All are welcome to attend this free event to learn about community building and how to combine a creative approach with effective grassroots community planning, expansive public participation, hands-on action, and leadership development. This is a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas and learn about how to inspire change and succeed in making improvements in your neighborhood.

Groundswell NW will also present its annual “Local Heroes” awards, which recognize fellow Ballardites’ efforts to create and enhance parks, public spaces, and habitat in our community. This is a free public event. Desserts and refreshments will be available; donations of desserts for the potluck are welcome!

Where: Sunset Hill Community Club, 3003 NW 66th St, Ballard
