Garfield Elementary is holding its seventh annual Culture & Community Night this Friday, May 16 from 6 to 8pm.
The event is like a mini Unity in the Community, with booths showcasing cultures from all over the world. There will be free snacks, bingo games, fun craft activities, exciting performers, art education (including learning how to write your name in Japanese) and lots more. Reverend Happy Watkins will also be returning this year to speak.
And parents, there’s lots more than kids’ activities. The local C.O.P.S. Shop will be on hand to provide safety IDs for children.
The Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council will be tabling a booth there too. Volunteers will be on hand to talk to you about how to request free street trees in front of your house, how to get sidewalks repaired or replaced, our ambitious Neighborhood Planning effort, this year’s Concerts in the Park series, the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market and the role of the neighborhood council in improving the quality of life here in E-G.
If you have questions about the Culture & Community Night, call Dee Dee on (509) 324-2700.
