THE GATHERING PLACE CARDS:  Get you VALENTINE, EASTER, MOTHER’S DAY, FATHER’S DAY cards from our card rack. Just a REMINDER of how very valuable your card purchases are for The Gathering Place. The importance of The Card Project to the artists cannot be overstated: one in eight is currently homeless. The financial benefits are underscored by more intangible benefits such as increased self-esteem, the opportunity to be part of a caring community, and the chance to engage in creative self-expression. And, the cards are BEAUTIFUL!

AROUND THE PERK

As we mentioned previously, we are in the process of transitioning to an ALL BARISTA STAFF at Wash Perk.  This means  we are all in transition, learning one anthers jobs and responsibilities.  We have baristas learning the myriad of tasks for which the bus peeps are responsible and the bus peeps are being meticulously trained in barista skills.  You may have noticed our bar being a bit crowded these days!  We’d like to THANK YOU for your patience and constructive feedback throughout this time.

We will also be welcoming two NEW BARISTAS this week and next to help us shore up for Spring.

Our much beloved MARKKI OTTESON will be leaving Wash Perk in mid-March for a few months. She will always be welcome back here, but we wish for her all that she desires as she takes a long overdue extended time off :-)

January 19th – January 25th, 2015

King was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the civil rights movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. The campaign for a federal holiday in King's honor began soon after his assassination in 1968. President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed three years later. At first, some states resisted observing the holiday as such, giving it alternative names or combining it with other holidays. It was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.
