It's National Night Out - What a great way to kick off an Action Packed August. East Side Connect! returns to your monthly line-up next week with a conversation about Workforce and Disability Awareness with MSS. We'll also host an ESABA Coffee Break this month with Caydence Records & Coffee. And in between we'll join in the efforts to get school supplies into the hands of East Side students so these hungry minds are well equipped to take a running leap at the school year - Family Values for Life's 12th Annual Back to School Event. Donate school supplies, volunteer, or have a Community Resource Table. But wait summer's not over yet! Not by a long shot. Be watching for your opportunity to get the last squeeze out of the sunny season... ESABA Gala is coming in September.

Plenty of Summer Left:

Hiring signs are up almost everywhere. Increase your Disability Awareness and find workforce solutions at the same time. We'll hear from ESABA Member, MSS, about their work with people with developmental disabilities and the power those workers are bringing to workplaces across the East Side and beyond. Join us and kick off another excellent season of East Side Connect! - our virtual East Side networking opportunity.

Join us for caffeinated networking – East Side style. We’ll kick off the fall season with a gathering on Payne Ave at Caydence Records & Coffee. Bring your East Side Orbiter and browse for good deals in the record racks, drink fantastic coffee, sample some of their new food offerings, and get your day off to the right start. We’ll have a chance to immerse in some Payne Arcade history and giveaway fantastic prizes too.

Eager to see you in 3-D.
