Met a whole lot of great people today at CSU student orientation. It was packed around noon and both Joe & I gave out hundreds of cards. We hope to have student volunteers joining us soon. We met musicians, artists, creative and passionate people who loved what we’re bringing to the east side. Great things are on its way and with the music and art space complete we’ll have another area for bringing people together to better the community.
We followed the day by joining a drumming circle on the river walk under the main st. bridge where many talented drummers gathered and what a sound they made! The coordination of rhythm & beats was astounding. Drummers came from CO Springs and Denver to participate. We surely have a lot of talent locally. Many have offered to play at Pueblo House and that’s wonderful. We’re working hard to get the houses completed so we can start more programs for the kids.
This weekend there is a gathering in Lakewood and Golden for COCORN who is organizing for Community Rights. Everyone who can should try to make it. I believe it only holds 100 people so get in touch if you plan to attend.
Creating Sustainable Communities: Elevating Community Rights Above Corporate Powers.
