Volunteers wanted to join international visitors at Lewis Park

Christine Cole sent us info on an International Work Party at Lewis Park this weekend:

Hello Neighbors!

This Sunday, May 29, Lewis Park has the honor and privilege of hosting 18 professional delegates from 15 African nations. This special group has been selected by the U.S. Embassy in their respective countries to participate in the Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program. The World Affairs Council of Seattle will be hosting the delegation as they experience “Grassroots Democracy in the U.S.” in action.

  • When: May 29, 2011 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Stay for it all or come at your leisure!)
  • Where: Lewis Park (900 Sturgus Ave. S.)
  • Why: Share your stories and thoughts on volunteerism with leaders from around the world!
