We have been working with staff at Kent State to follow up on the success of last year’s Flash Fixers projects with another community-wide partnership event. This year’s event is being promoted as 100 Hours of Power that will be coordinated with the national Make a Difference Day. The event partners Kent State Students with city businesses and residents who join together and volunteer to fix up and clean up our community. The 5 day event is planned to begin on Tuesday October 21st and run thru Saturday October 25th. We would certainly welcome any volunteer participation in the event and I have provided more information on how the program will work. It’s another great example of the synergy that’s possible in our home town.
To refresh your memory about what the Flash Fixers have been up to check out this blog post.

Now, here’s the invitation letter that the City and the University co-signed and sent out to recruit volunteer teams to join the current effort in October:
I hope you’ll consider signing up or if you can’t join us please let us know some areas or neighbors that could use the help of volunteers during that week. Thanks.
