(Cross-posted to next door!) Hey Neighbors! If you were at the most recent EFCC meeting you may remember me (MaryAlice Duff) I'm the events person on the committee tasked with helping to organize EFCC sponsored events. I'm still pretty new here to East Falls (I mean I've only lived here three years) but I definitely call this neighborhood my home. I'm seeking to build a small group of individuals interested in participating in an active events subcommittee so that we can put together successful community events that are attended by and enjoyed by our neighbors. Being a part of this group would mean assisting in the development, planning and day-of tasks that lead up to hosting a successful event. This would definitely be a hands on volunteer opportunity! If you have any interest or simply have more questions feel free to email me at email@example.com Thank you!
