First Day of Spring

It’s the first day of Spring—one of my favorite transition days of the year. As a gardener, it marks the start of the new season of growing.

“Growing” is already happening at ONEplace! Since our launch a couple of weeks ago, we’ve had workshops with maximum numbers of people attending and had to stop registration on one for next week, already! We added a new date for the same topic in late April and already have five people signed up. This is exciting growth, and we’ve just begun.

Please check our website calendar regularly for new events and workshops—and register early!

Opening week at ONEplace

Opening week at ONEplace has been a grand! Our launch event on March 3 found over 160 enthusiastic people gathered in the Van Deusen Room at Central Library to learn about our new support services and programs for nonprofits in Kalamazoo County. The energy was palpable!

Our speakers—Ann RohrbaughRick HugheyDave Gardiner, and Kyle Caldwell—joined me in sharing the value of centers like ours at all times—and, especially in difficult economic times. Building infrastructures and capacities in and across nonprofits will “float everyone’s boat” and create a stronger community for all.

Thanks to everyone who came to the event or asked about it afterward, thanks to the Kalamazoo Gazette for featuring ONEplace on the front page, and WMUK for their interview. We’re off and running…and we welcome your participation.
