We are planning an amazing, BIG, BIG BLOCK PARTY! We need lots of help, including help getting the word out:
- Print Media. We have 100 beautiful 11”x17” posters that need to be put up all around MLT and the north end (Edmonds, Brier, Lynnwood, Lake Forest Park, north Shoreline), and 3500 double-sided postcards to be given out wherever those posters are posted. This needs to happen THIS WEEK! Click HERE to go to the PR Distribution Sign-Up Form. We’ll ask that you do use that form to report back so that we don’t have twelve volunteers wasting time by approaching the same places.
- City of Mountlake Terrace July 3rd Fireworks Show at Lake Ballinger. We’d love to have folks sign up in teams of two for half-hour shifts to hand out postcards Sunday evening at Lake Ballinger. There will be a big crowd there, so we could pass out a LOT of postcards in a short period of time if we have lots of volunteers! If you’re already planning on attending the Fireworks Show, take a shift with a friend and tell others about our Big, Big Block Party! You can pick up postcards ahead of time at Bethesda OR from Pastor Heidi on site at the Park. Click here to go to the PR Distribution Sign Up Form.
- Social Media. We need to get lots of buzz going about the Big, Big Block Party. We’ve got an e-version of the postcard that you can share, photos of Bethesda, photos of the Joy Street Orchestra and a sample of their music. As soon as we’ve locked in our Food Trucks, we’ll let you know so you can talk THEM up!
- News Media. Think about writing a letter to the editor of your local paper, encouraging folks to attend on July 16th. Then do it!
