This event showcases the dozens of clubs, organizations, interest groups and community services available to residents of Fall City. This is a casual, come-as-you-are style event, where you can stay 15 minutes or all afternoon. People of all ages are welcome.
Residents have an opportunity to meet representatives from King County, SnoValley Transportation, Fall City Parks, The Sno-Valley Senior Center, Relay for Life, The Fall City Historical Society, Fall City Arts, the King County Fire District, The Raging River Conservation Group, Encompass and many more organizations. The FCCA plans to invite dozens of service organizations to attend and their booths will be placed throughout the entire library.
The purpose of this casual gathering is to help residents connect with dozens of services and interest groups they might not even know are available. This is also an opportunity for like-minded individuals to meet each other, join organizations or just make new friends. Although readers of this newsletter are fairly informed, many members of the community are not familiar with the abundance of service groups in the area. Please invite your friends to this free event.
The idea for this event was introduced by Leadership Eastside, a local, non-profit organization dedicated to building stronger, connected communities. Over the course of several months in 2015, volunteers from Leadership Eastside hosted workshops and gathered information about the needs of Fall City residents. Leadership Eastside then presented their findings to the FCCA, recommending a variety of ways to help residents become more knowledgeable and engaged in the community.
The FCCA and The Library have hosted this event in the past. In 2017 and 2018, at least 20 service groups were represented and around 200 visitors got a chance to learn about the wide range of offerings in our community. We expect more groups and even greater attendance this year.
