Ah, The Best Laid Plans...



REMEMBER THIS EVENT?
When last we met I reported the plan for a Katrina Foley "Get Connected" event tonight at the Neighborhood Community Center at which things like City/School connections would be discussed.  Well, the best laid plans sometimes don't come to fruition.
NOBODY SHOWED UP...
When I arrived at the Neighborhood Community Center a couple minutes after 6:00 p.m. - darn cross-town traffic! - I found Foley and several staff members in the room... waiting.  Well, they waited, and waited and waited and, just after 6:30, they cancelled the event because only four of us showed up and we were outnumbered by staff and representatives of other organizations, 2 to 1.
HARD TO EXPLAIN THE NO-SHOWS
Nobody was sure what happened - some speculated that it might be the venue that intimidated some of the Latino members of the community.  Others thought it might be the first World Series Game.  Whatever the reason, only four of us showed up.

NEXT YEAR, DIFFERENT VENUE
The event will be rescheduled early in the new year at a different location - perhaps at a school more centrally located in the Westside.  Thanks to Katrina Foley and the city staffers who showed up to make this even work.  Next time...
