Weekly Announcements - September 13th
Happy Thursday! BLACK LIVES MATTER VIGIL On Saturday, September 15th from 11:30am - 12:30pm, we'll convene in front of Kirkwood City Hall. We'll have signs, but you're welcome to bring your own that uplift the message that Black Lives Matter. As a note, the Green Tree Festival in Kirkwood is taking place that morning and parking is likely to be a bit of a challenge. Feel free to park at Eliot Chapel and walk over if you're able. Afterwards, please join us at Eliot Chapel (100 South Taylor Avenue) for lunch and a public Co-Lead meeting. We'll be sharing updates from the last few months and exciting updates for future events. As a reminder, the room we use is nut-free due to serious allergies. Please do not bring any nut-containing foods for lunch. WE CAN MEETINGS
