- The Pleasant Street Neighborhood Network Center (PSNNC) is celebrating a new, exciting year on Wednesday December 12th, 5:30 to 7:30. Join us as we congratulate Mary Keefe as she steps down from executive director into her new role as State Representative, and as the Board steps up to fill in her shoes. Learn about what we are planning to do in the future and let us know what you'd like to participate in. Meet and mingle with the neighborhood while listening to local Jazz and munching on finger-food. We are also sending out our annual appeal, so don't forget to donate if you have the ability to do so.
- Habitat for Humanity will be moving into the ReStore so that all of the MetroWest/Greater Worcester affiliate will be under one roof. As a result of this consolidation, we have shuffled staff around - we are in need of volunteers more than ever. To celebrate our awesome volunteers (and the customers, too), we are having a volunteer appreciation potluck during the Holiday Hootenanny! Everyone who reads this blog should check out the ReStore's holiday event on Saturday December 15th 10-5pm, which will showcase two bands (Original Jelly Roll Soul - RI jazz and Hip Swayers - Worcester folk), craft vendors, children's activities and a store-wide sale. If you have not been to the ReStore in a while, you need to see all the hard work the volunteers have put into it. I guarantee that the ReStore's appearance has changed drastically.
