Grow celebrates the progress on our new Community Center with daylong events on Thursday, July 20.
We will be hosting lunch for the construction team, followed by an evening potluck and sharing of the Grow Community site history through many generations. Special guests will share family and neighborhood stories, including a visiting descendent of the pioneer Grow family. This event will focus on history – no tours of the center or its features will take place, but see our schedule of upcoming events for future opportunities.
