Revisit, Revibe & Revitalize Our Community Back-to-School Event

The Organization for the Community Preservation organized a community-wide event “Revisit, Revibe, & Revitalize our Community.” The event included a back-to-school component to provide neighborhood students with age-appropriate supplies for school. The event was a success, with 30 residents participating in the event, networking, and meeting new neighbors. Neighbors also got the chance to have one-on-one discussions with their Unified Government Commissioner.

Environmental Literacy

We like to consider ourselves pioneers in world wide environmental movement, with a mandate to learn first, return to our roots and evaluate how what we have learned fits, and then return to the environmental community itself, to share the kind of adjustments we have discovered needs to be made to their perceived perspectives, so what we are now teaching as a collaborative group, can finally have a real chance to truly become a benefit.
