No Pie Charts! Only Pies!

Annual Spring Membership Meeting

Late April- 2013 Date TBD

Minnehaha Academy North Campus
3100 W River Parkway

Join the Longfellow Community Council for our Annual Membership Meeting and board elections! Bring a pie to share, get updates on what is happening in Longfellow, learn about local organizations at our resource fair and elect board members you believe in!

Receive one ticket for each non-perishable food item you bring for the Minnehaha Food Shelf. Tickets will be entered in a drawing to win great things like Growlers from Harriet Brewing, movie passes, a gift certificate to Glaciers Café and more! Limit of ten tickets per person, but please bring as much as you are able to donate.

Here are 7 Simple Things you can do to promote the No Pie Charts! Only Pies Meeting!

  1. SHARE information about our event on your twitter and facebook page.
  2. INVITE a friend or neighbor to come with you.
  3. FLYER your block or leave flyers at local businesses. Flyers are attached or you can pick some up at the office.
  4. EMAIL event information to fellow residents or make meeting information part of your email signature up until the meeting.
  5. ENCOURAGE someone you know to run for the board. Know someone who is interested in their community and would make a great leader? Perfect!
  6. OFFER someone a ride. Mobility can often limit people from being as active they would like to be. Help change that in your own community.
  7. ORGANIZE your neighbors. Go on a group bike ride to the event! Bake pies together! Have a pre-meeting barbeque! Hold a food drive for the meeting!

SPECIAL OFFER: Email Jessica ( with what you are going to do to promote our Annual Meeting and receive a bonus ticket for our drawing at the meeting. Prizes include movie passes to Trylon and Riverview Theater, a gift certificate to Glacier’s Café, a Chinook Book (Blue Sky Guide) Prize Pack, framed photos and jewelry made by Longfellow artists, growlers from Harriet Brewing and more.
