    This community event is open to Bay View Neighborhood Association (BVNA) members. It is another great benefit to your BVNA membership! If you're a neighbor but not a member, please join us! Memberships start at just $15 a year, and you can sign up online: http://www.bayviewneighborhood.org/member  

    Clean out your basements and attics because the Bay View Neighborhood Association community wide rummage sale is almost here! It will take place on the third Saturday in May (May 19, 2018) from 8:00am -3:00 pm. You provide the stuff and the garage (or yard!) and BVNA takes care of the promotion, advertising, online maps, and signage.

    This is a great (and green!) opportunity to clear your home of clothes that don’t fit, furniture you no longer need, and other items that have simply outlived their usefulness in your home but might be a gem to someone else! It’s also a great opportunity to make a little room before summer starts.

    This year there will also be an on-line map to help guide shoppers. It will allow you to list categories like baby toys or kitchen items or highlight a few specific items. To be listed on the map, please click here [insert link to sign-up on BVNA web site] by Sunday,  May 13th with the address of your sale and a short description of your stuff.  The first 35 registrants will also get a yard sign put on their lawn. 

    A link to the online map of participating homes will be posted on the Bay View Neighborhood Association web site starting May 15th.

    Southside SOUP is a microgranting dinner celebrating and supporting creative projects in District 14. For a donation of $10 for adults (children 12 and under are free) attendees receive soup, salad, bread and a vote and hear from four presentations ranging from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more. Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and answer four questions from the audience. At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy art and vote on the project they think benefits the city the most. At the end of the night, we count the ballots and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project. Winners come back to a future SOUP dinner to report their project’s progress.

    SOUP IS:

    • a collaborative situation
    • a public dinner
    • a platform for connection
    • a safe space
    • a democratic experiment in micro-funding
    • a relational hub bringing together various creative communities
    • a forum for critical but accessible discussion
    • an opportunity to support creative people in District 14

    Do you have a project you would like to support? Or do you know a group that should sign up? Have them fill out the application here
