Greetings!

Monday, was Indigenous People's Day and Lower Phalen Creek Project invited ESABA Colleagues to join in a dedication at the future site of Wakan Tipi Center - right now we can help them meet their fall fundraising goal.

Speaking of fun and money, ESABA is in Vegas this week - the "Far Western Edge of the East Side" as we call it. We've themed the survey's below for a bit of Vegas fun... take these surveys as your chance to get away from some task you'd rather not do just yet and dig in for a minute on something that could make a difference to the East Side. Then plan to join us for this month's Coffee Break on Oct 21 at The Beloved.

Surveys masquerading in Vegas themes below:

More "Getaway by Digging in:"
Lower Phalen Creek is almost at it's goal - help get them over. See below.
Getaway / Dig In!

Survey 1:

Don't Gamble with our Future...

Give some feedback to give the East Side a little of your voice. And hey, then we all win.
And... Survey 2:

1965 Sherwood Ave
9:00am - 10:00am

Coffee. A bite. Pure Networking. Wear your Mask.

We'll be masked up when we're not eating or drinking so bring your favorite mask and your favorite mug and join us.
Keeping Up With The Creek, our Fall Fundraiser was a smashing success! 
 
Together we were able to unlock the $25,000 matching gift from our generous donor and with your help we can reach our $35,000 goal - there's only $3,675 left to go!
 
Donate today and you'll be supporting Indigenous-led land-based work in Environmental Education, Urban Restoration and Conservation, and Cultural Connections and Healing
Join this in person information meeting and learn about this new ESABA member, Guild, and how you can support their work. We're putting a table together for the Oct 27th Ladder of Hope gathering. Email Paris for more info
