Flint Community Schools: Vision, Opportunities, and Challenges
Come join us this Friday, May 24th at 8:00 a.m. at Hoffman’s Deli located at 503 Garland St. to hear Lawrence E. Watkins, Jr. talk about what’s in store for Flint Community Schools. Networking at 7:30 a.m.
Hope to see you there!!
Due to the holiday season, we normally cancel 4th Friday Breakfast in November and December. This year, we are pleased to continue 4th Friday Breakfast through year’s end with one caveat…it will be held on the THIRD Friday in both months!
So, that means that Third Friday Breakfast is this week! On Friday, join us at Hoffman’s Deco Deli, 503 Garland St., at 7:30 am to welcome Andrew and James from the Flint Public Art Project! They’ll let us know about current projects and events, and tell us how we can get involved! Don’t sleep in…come out and join us this Friday, November 16th!
Dick Ramsdell will be joining us to discuss the Flint Farmer’s Market Neighborhood Sites. The Farmers’ Market plans to organize two satellite markets in 2012, one located on Flint’s North Side, and one on the South Side.
Dick spoke during a 4th Friday breakfast about a vision for Neighborhood Sites, and now we welcome him back to talk about further plans for its funding, and development.
Breakfast this month is Friday, April 27 at 7:30am at Hoffman’s Deco Deli & Cafe. We will see you there!

Of course now we are a day behind here at the blog so we are going to squeeze together the Monday Mash and Tuesday To Know. What we will get we don’t know, maybe MonTuesday Mash Know.

-The first of our Member Panel meetings will be taking place at the end of this month, the exact date is still TBD but you do not want to miss out on the first meeting. This will be your chance to meet fellow members, and brainstorm what you as Flint Club members would like to collectively accomplish over the next six months.
-Not a member yet? Want to take part in the panel? You can sign up right here. http://www.flintclub.org/membership.html
-And finally, this has been swirling around the internets for the past week. Is it too early for Halloween? Probably, but it is still fun to see the Flint landmarks in a different light… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHmO5jxg8oE
