Lucky residents in Emerson-Garfield have already begun receiving their flyers for this year’s Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Picnic & Potluck, which will be held Wednesday, August 8 from 6 to 8pm in Emerson Park [map].

The picnic/potluck is being organized by members of the Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council — an all-volunteer organization that’s dedicated to bringing improvements to the neighborhood and ensuring a better quality of life for residents and business owners alike.
This event will be a great chance to meet your neighbors from all over Emerson-Garfield neighborhood and to hear from EGNC members on things like:
- Upcoming events
- Crime reports
- Initiatives by the City of Spokane
- Neighborhood planning
- Park improvements
Everyone who lives or does business in Emerson-Garfield is welcome to attend. Invite your closest neighbors! Invite members of your charity or congregation! Invite the postman! Invite the cashiers at Zips on NW Blvd and Pizza Rita on Indiana or the baristas at Caffe Delicio!
There will be free hot dogs and soda, but all participants are kindly asked to please bring a dish (seriously, folks, please bring a dish!) to ensure that we’ve got enough food and enough variety. It could be a bowl of your homemade potato salad, a bag of tortilla chips and a jar of salsa, or some fruit from a local grocer.
Costs for all the supplies are coming out of our own pockets, so if you’re feeling generous, here’s what else we could use:
- Extra utensils
- Extra cups
- Additional hot dogs or burgers (and buns)
Please let us know if you’re bringing any of the above so we can plan accordingly. Leave a comment below, e-mail us, or call (509) 325-4340.
A neighborhood council meeting will follow the event, which means you can take part and decide if you’d like to become an active member.
We look forward to seeing you there!
