SLIDESHOW: A Gathering of Neighbors brings the community together

The Gathering of Neighbors brought the community out to share information, enjoy some entertainment and to get to know one another on Saturday May 4 as community organizations tabled, and visited with people.

The morning consisted of breakout sessions talking about community issues such as neighborhood beautification, how to strengthen communities, and emergency preparedness.

Organizations on hand to raise awareness ranged from West Seattle Be Prepared, to the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.
Pete Spalding was there representing his effort to "re-imagine" Delridge Way. Spalding along with Matt McBride are working on gathering public opinion as to the future of North Delridge to be presented when the next levy is in development. His goal is to secure funding to improve the area. Also coming up on May 18 from 10am to 2pm is your opportunity to Paint Out and Spring Clean on Delridge. If you'd like to help contact David Bestock at 935-2099 or david@youngstownarts.org. Refreshments and supplies will be included.
