  1. About 60 neighbors from 35 neighborhoods across Tucson were present today to hear form Patricia Martin about their curb appeal project in Peter Howell Neighborhood, five of which won prizes;then myself about our successful Sam Hughes Home Tour with sold out brochures/tickets an hour after we started the tour, making net of $27,000;then Sarah Studd about how to host a Porch Fest at Mountain/First Neighborhoods (non fundraiser) over several hours in the afternoon, with musicians only earning tips. Next Porch Fest is on Oct. 21 (see FB page). Afternoon presentation by Judith Anderson about fundraising, eliciting suggestions from various neighbors about building community, hosting events w/o a lot of expenses, etc. One comment was about trying to include poorer neighborhoods and a presentation from the Westside neighborhood projects.
