No General Membership Meeting This Month

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

There will be no General Membership Meeting held this month, please join us in the New Year on January 10, 2017: we will have the latest on Re-Imagine West Colfax from the Business Improvement District. We would like to say THANK YOU to all the volunteers who participated in our neighborhood clean-up days, tree planting event, those who helped deliver our newsletters each month, and other volunteer opportunities throughout the year. WeCAN is run on 100% volunteer hours and we could not have done it without all your help. Wishing all our West Colfax neighbors a happy and safe holiday season!

Kind Regards,

Nadia Hafeez Patrick & Leah Rounds
