If you don’t live in Western Washington, then you may not know that it has been raining pretty steadily for almost a couple of weeks now–typical May showers followed by May downpours in anticipation of June floods! Thanks to Alan Potter of AEP Hauling & Dozing Inc., the village site has been cleared and leveled, in preparation for digging of the storm water ponds, which, if you squint at this picture, look like they have already been filled!
Hopefully things will have dried up considerably in time for THE QUIXOTE VILLAGE GROUNDBREAKING CELEBRATION scheduled for Saturday, June 8th at 2 pm. All friends of Camp Quixote and Quixote Village are invited as we take the opportunity to thank everyone who has helped move this unique, model response to homelessness in our community forward. It will take place, come rain or come shine (the weather forecast is actually pretty good!), but we’ll have a big tent, just in case. Please join us!
And if you are looking for a way to get involved, Camp Quixote will be moving its location, hopefully for the last time, on Saturday, June 29th, from its current site at First Christian Church on Franklin Street in Olympia to Westminster Presbyterian Church on Boulevard Road.
Pickup trucks and strong backs will be needed all day, and it will be another great opportunity to get to know the residents and your friends and neighbors who are helping. If you want more information about the move and what’s needed, please contact Miriam at (360) 584-9804.
Oh, and please be sure to “Share” and “Like” our Facebook posts. We need all the friends we can get!
