TUESDAY PROGRESSIVES MEETING: Tuesday, February 3rd 9-11am at the Community Table. Denver area progressives gather for conversation and debate.
CLIMATE CHANGE LETTER BRIGADE: Wednesday, February 4th, 6:30-8pm at the Community Table. First Wednesday of every month. Climate Letter Brigade will write letters to our Senators Udall and Bennet, and our Representatives (Diana DeGette for District 1) asking for action on climate change. CCLB will supply stationery, postcards, addresses, pens, stamps, and ideas of what to say. We believe our members of Congress need to hear that we are concerned!
STEELE ELEMENTARY ART SHOW OPEN HOUSE: Thursday, February 5th 5:30-6:45pm. Art teacher, neighbor, dear friend to Wash Perk, MIRIAM UNGAR, will host an open house for her 61 students and their parents to come see the mosaic art pieces. She will provide snacks for viewers.
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!

A message from Dani Daniel, our manager at Wash 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
FEEDBACK is SO appreciated. As always, we want 100% satisfaction for our customers.
