Count and Be Counted

Posted in EVENTS, NEIGHBORHOOD on April 27, 2011 by Julie Nachtwey, the Claremont Hills Real Estate Expert

You’re invited this Friday evening April 29 at 7:30 pm to visit Mrs. Dalloway’s Bookstore for a book reading and ideas on how to get involved.

Author Arthur Blaustein will be reminding us of the merits of community service in DEMOCRACY IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT: the Ultimate Volunteer Handbook.

Blaustein is a professor at UC Berkeley for community development, public policy and politics.  He has served key positions in past administrations as board member of the National Endowment for the Humanities and chair of the President’s National Advisory Council of Economic Opportunity.

In his book, Blaustein recommends both short-term and long-term plans of action for civic engagement.  Also included are interviews and commentary from leaders of non-profit and civic involvement groups.

Senator John Kerry said about this book “…a blueprint and guidebook to help get us all involved.”

Mrs. Dalloway’s Literary & Garden Arts is located at 2904 College Avenue near the corner of Russell, adjacent to The Elmwood Cafe.

Dear Neighbors & Friends,

You are invited to a party this Friday evening, April 8, featuring “Pupusas” a tasty homemade dish from El Salvador. The event is to support Peace Camp.That’s the creative-arts summer program for disadvantaged Oakland youth…with a local twist.  A number of East Bay neighbors have supported Peace Camp for almost ten years.  Peace Camp is an important program that is part of the umbrella organization called “Oakland Leaf”


You really CAN make a difference in the lives of these children.  Find out how easy it is by joining us this Friday from 7 to 9:30pm for supper and the chance to learn about what Peace Camp offers. For more details about the event, please contact either Toni or
