WHAT INNOVATION IN HOW WE LIVE, WORK, AND PLAY TOGETHER WOULD STRENGTHEN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD?

How can we have the greatest impact on the Benton Park West neighborhood and surrounding areas?   Who would benefit?  How would the neighborhood be strengthened?

The Incarnate Word Foundation has agreed to invest $25,000 to seed what those who care about the neighborhood decide would be most effective in answering these questions.

Please join us on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 9:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M. at the CHEROKEE BUSINESS INCUBATOR, 2715 CHEROKEE ST. (between Ohio and Iowa) —

-to share your thoughts, dreams, and vision for the neighborhood

-to hear the thinking of others

– to decide together the most effective use of this investment

– to commit to making our ideas a reality.

If you have an idea but can’t be present, you are invited and urged to send it in ahead of time or send it with someone who will be attending.

The day promises to be an energizing one with a lively exchange of all kinds of ideas.  So put the date on your calendar now.

PRIZES:  Each hour there will be a drawing of gift certificates and merchandise from the neighborhood and beyond.  YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN.
