[Source: Catrina Knoebl, Roosevelt Action Association] — The Roosevelt Action Association (RAA) is working feverishly to ensure that the Roosevelt neighborhood and extended community are appropriately represented in downtown Phoenix’s portion of the December 27 Light Rail grand opening celebration. Light Rail event organizers have agreed to move the RAA booth to the Roosevelt Station and lend a few tables for RAA’s booth and others who may be interested in participating. Organizers will have a staffed table on the platform to provide directions to people getting on and off the train.
The December 27 event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. RAA is working with Fair Trade Coffee and others to determine the best position to set up along Central.
IMPORTANT: RAA needs to know how many other neighborhood groups are interested in having a presence at this station. This will help RAA determine the best location and layout. Please send an e-mail with the following information by end of day today so RAA knows how best to proceed:
- ID whether or not you need a full table or if a shared table will work
- Contact info (e-mail and phone)
