Tuesday, December 5, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Host: City of Kirkland
Location: Kirkland City Hall, Peter Kirk Room (downstairs – enter from south entrance), 123  5th Ave, Kirkland

Our circle continues to grow! Come meet advocates, providers, volunteers, and others who are part of welcoming efforts in East King County. At this meeting we’ll discuss the Best Starts for Kids Grant due on Jan. 11th for partnerships serving “Place-Based and Cultural Communities.”

ERIC Connection meetings are open to members and guests interested in joining the coalition. (Not a member? You can sign up here!) Get updates on welcoming efforts with cities and schools, hear about emerging issues and trends in the community, and connect with others for joint efforts. Bring an item to share for lunch if you can plus business cards, flyers, etc. We look forward to seeing you!

Evening “Takeout” Social

Wednesday, December 13, 5:30-7:30pm
Location: Crossroads Shopping Center Food Court (between June Bakery and Mini City Hall), 15600 NE 8th St, Bellevue, WA

Join us for an end of year gathering and enjoy food from local restaurants, many of whom are owned by our immigrant neighbors. If you can, purchase one entree to share from any of the Crossroads Shopping Center restaurants and bring it to the tables we have reserved in the food court. Just one, please – there will be plenty of food! Let’s support our local business owners, put 2017 to rest, and connect with friends and neighbors who’ve been organizing and/or participating in welcoming community events throughout the year. All are welcome. We look forward to seeing you!
