TEAMING UP WITH LOCAL BUSINESSES

ArtWorksLBC and local vendors, Bowman Ceramics and Green Smith Goodness teamed up with local business Skies for Miles at 2741 E. 4th Street for a Makers Workshop on Sunday, November 6th.

Attendees learned how to create unique gifts for the holiday season and for any occasion year-round. Holiday ornaments were made for seniors with ArtWorksLBC, individuals created handmade ceramics such as ornaments, bowls, and cups with Bowman Ceramics, and GreenSmith Goodness served up healthy and delicious drink alternatives full of live probiotics – good for gut health!

It was a great day of collaboration among artists and sharing out the many talents of our local businesses. It also gave attendees an opportunity to discover their creativity and try out new vendors. Thanks to Theresa of Skies for Miles and Evangeline for organizing this neighborhood event along 4th Street!

Neighborhood Book Club & Roses for Rose Park for Businesses!

Neighborhood Book Club gathering on Sunday, November 6th

Long Beach neighbors gathered early Sunday evening for food and drinks to discuss the book “The Connected Community” written by Cormac Russell and John McKnight. This book explores the ways neighbors can connect with each other to create healthier, stronger and more engaged neighborhoods. The group discussed the inspirational stories from the book that describes the many ways we can utilize the resources and assets of our own neighborhoods in order to strengthen our communities and create healthier environments. “Real change comes from within the neighborhood, not outside-in, and not top down. When neighbors seek to connect and discover all of the assets and treasures that exist locally, individuals feel empowered and resilient in making long-lasting positive change.” – not an exact quote, but a summation of the book and discussion of book club attendees.

Special thanks to the wonderful hosts Eric & Kaney Copeland and local nonprofit We Love Long Beach for organizing. If you are interested in reading this book or hosting a discussion around this topic, please email us at info@rpna.org.
