Please join me for the first Visioning event at the United Methodist Children’s Home on Sunday, February 11; 1-5pm. Details below:

The UMCH visioning process will span roughly three months, launching with some collective big picture dreaming, then fleshing out ideas in greater detail in the weeks ahead.

During Sunday’s kick-off event, participants should expect a variety of activities designed to answer our most basic questions: What are your memories or experiences on the property? What do you want to preserve? What would you like to see added in the years ahead? How do you use, or want to use, the site? And how can everything be best connected with the broader community?

I will be making some welcoming remarks around 2pm, but the event overall is organized for drop-bys. Come at your convenience during the four hour window and work your way through self-guided activities at your own pace. Weather permitting, you’ll also be able to take a self-guided tour to acquaint (or reacquaint) yourself with the property.

Dates and times of future meetings as well as information on hosting or participating in a civic dinner conversation about possibilities for the UMCH can be found here:
