We’ve had an eventful 2019 and we’d like to shout out to our beloved community of South End business owners and staff, artists and entrepreneurs, property owners, nonprofit leaders and organizers, residents—everyone: a whole-hearted thank you, and happy holidays to you and yours!  

We have a lot in store for 2020!

Many of you attended our Business Resource Open House on Nov. 4 at the Columbia City Library. Guests made connections with a variety of organizations and resources available to them.

We had our first Networking Happy Hour at Amy’s Merkato in Hillman City on Wed., Dec. 4. It was well attended and our hosts Yodit, Filli, and family were so lovely and gracious. The traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony made us all feel connected and appreciated (as a community should). 

**To those of you who met us for the first time at Amy’s, thanks so much for coming and welcome to the list! 

Here are some pics of you all at Amy’s:

And some from the Business Resource Open House:

We hope that family, friends, and fireplaces warm your homes and hearts
this (chilly) season.

If you received a survey in the mail from us or have one that we gave you in person, please fill it out and return it to us so we can best assess and address your needs.

Looking forward to connecting with you in the new year!
