Carlyon/North hosts 3-4 events per year. The past couple of years that has included the Spring Egg Hunt in April, the Summer Yard Sale & Neighborhood Social in July, the November General Meeting / Election Forum, and the Thurston County Food Project pick-up days (every other month).
As time allows, expected project/tasks to be led up by board members in the upcoming year include grant writing; volunteer coordination; membership development, website, email, & social media communication; neighborhood safety awareness; liaison work with local businesses, cities, schools, and neighborhood associations; food project coordination; and the newsletter.
Board meetings are held monthly. This past year, we have met on the 1st Wednesday of each month from 7-8:30pm at a local restaurant or a board member’s home.
In addition to board positions, we are always seeking volunteers for distributing newsletters 3-4 times per year, to assist with logistics for each event, and to support our Thurston County Food Project program.
