The North/South Freeway IS coming. Washington TTransportationis working hard to help affected neighborhoods make the best of a challenging situation. They are asking for OUR input on the changes we what to see that will make any touch-point from the freeway an asset to our community. They are building a trail, the Children of the Sun Trail (that’s what ‘Spokane’ means) that will run from Wellsely to the River. What do WE want to see built there and how do WE want it to look? PLEASE attend at least ONE of the five/six scheduled meetings, called charrettes, where we can dream, plan, and commit. We are planning for the next 40 years – come and be a part of history!

Headstart Construction Trades

We are still taking applications for the Headstart to the Construction Trades (HCT) co-ed class which begins on April 9th & is being instructed at the Salem Lutheran Church @ 1428 W. Broadway.  We are also taking applications for the all-female HCT class which begins on May 7th & will be instructed at the Northeast Community Center.  We will begin a class next week inside Geiger and we will be instructing a class at Excelsior Youth Center in late May.  While we have secured funding for instructors, books and materials that will be needed by students we need funding that helps us cover support services for students for things such as workboots, gloves, tools, bus passes, gas vouchers and relicensing costs, etc.

Please consider getting into the STCU website nominating the Headstart to the Construction Trades (instructed by the AGC Apprenticeship) for their non-profit “Who do you love” give-away?  We sincerely THANK YOU for your help in trying to secure some funding for this most worthy cause which is training low/moderate income, under-skilled individuals and providing them with employable skills that have put many to work in the Construction Trades.  We want to continue that this year and appreciate your help in doing so.   Thank you for your support & for taking just a few minutes to help out the students in the HCT      – Judith Gilmore
