The Jack Pine Community Center needs *your* help (and we don't just mean money!) In the coming months, we invite anybody with energy to give it unapologetically to the JPCC, to embrace ownership of this space and its work, and to realize your own visions for what this place could be. Community Meeting Sunday, June 10th 4:00pm at the Jack Pine Recently, the Jack Pine Collective has realized that we no longer effectively represent the people who use the space. In response to this, we need to develop new strategies for decision-making, and spread power out amongst the people who use and value the space. Your energy and input is necessary to keep the space open! The primary goal of our community meeting is to form a steering committee that will review the organizational structure of the Jack Pine and propose changes and new strategies for effective management of the space. The committee will begin working in the middle of June and conclude at the end of the summer. The major question posed to the committee will be: "Is there an organizational structure capable of and willing to make the decision to keep the JPCC open?" We recognize that there are many people who feel connected to the JPCC, and we hope to create a climate in which that feeling of connection can transform, finally, to ownership. So if you've ever come to use our free internet, play ping-pong or foosball, check a book out of our library, get free food, see an inspiring movie or speaker, or had meetings or classess at the Jack Pine and you want others to be able to do the same in the future, come help us create new ways to make the Jack Pine a sustainable community resource. See you at the meeting! -- Jack Pine Community Center 2815 E. Lake St., Mpls www.thejackpine.org 612.729.2837
