Posted in: project.1, roosevelt elementary, update ♦ Tuesday, June 26th, 2007, 1:25 pm ♦ 1 Comment

It’s been almost one month since we launched {reclaiming roots} and we are very happy with the response so far. Many people are asking questions about who we are and what we are about. It’s great to be able to see people jive with our vision for community.

We wanted to give everyone an update on how things are lining up for Project.1 at Roosevelt Ravine. First, we want to thank all of you who have signed up to volunteer so far. We are currently aiming at 50 and so far we have 19. We are very happy about that. If you are interested in registering for this event em-link[1:click here]. We need all the help we can get!

Second, we want to celebrate sponsors that have joined us so far: House of Aromas Coffeehouse, Café del Sol Roasting, Hy-Vee, and Johnson County Refuse. We will hopefully have a few more coming on board in the next few days so keep checking our Project Sponsors page for updates on local support (If you are interested in sponsoring a part of this project, please email Luke at luke@reclaimingroots.org).

If this is your first time to the site, we encourage you to scroll down to read what has been going on and what we have planned for this project.

Last night we did another walk through the ravine to talk through some of our plans. There is plenty of work to be done on the trail and around the path. Here are a few pictures of our walk through:

  1. This project looks like it is going to rock. I’ll be thinking about you all while you’re reclaiming these roots. I’ll be on an airplane to Alaska as you are working on this project. I’ll keep up with the site to see how it went. – ReN
