There will be food to grill (vegan, vegetarian, halal options) and anyone who wants to can bring a dish to share!
There will be local organizations tabling, entertainment in the form of a DJ and/or movie, a Know Your Rights training, and a Really Really Free Market (free clothes, books, cds, etc. anyone is welcome to bring items to give away).
More details coming as we work them out. Please save the date and plan on attending! email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions/concerns/want to help!
And also- don’t forget that the next Barton Heights Neighborhood Association meeting will be on Tuesday, Sept. 11th at 6pm. Tell your neighbors, and let’s get the community out to talk about how to make Barton Heights a better place for us all!
A Really Really Free Market (RRFM) is a community gathering where participants bring, and give away absolutely free, andy usuable items, skills, ideas, talents, friendship, excitement, discussion, games and many other things that we as a community can come together and share. A RRFM is a 100% free and non-commercial event, creating a gift economy as an alternative to the normal way of buying and selling.
If this sounds like something you’d like to be involved with, we’d love to have your help.

- Contribute something to the free market, spare stuff that you have around your house or work, some kind of entertainment, or a skill that you’d like to share with your community.
-Tell your friends about this thing, the more people who show up the better it’s gonna be.
