Third Root is about to turn ONE YEAR OLD! That’s right, we've been providing accessible, empowering, collaborative healthcare for a year already, and we’re having a party to celebrate! Please join us August 19 from 6-11pm for an evening of live music, testimonies of our work in the last year, a heartfelt goodbye to Green Weyland-Llewellin, a founding member of Third Root, and a Raucus Welcome to Telesh Lopez, new Community Development Organizer, and two other (yet to be announced, drum roll please...) new staff at Third Root.
Will there be Food? Will there be drinks? Yes! We are going to have a barbeque, and Sycamore is offering a special “Third Root” drink with rooty liquers and tastiness!
Bands to Perform:
- DanceAlisaDance (www.myspace.com/dancealisadance)
- My Gay Banjo (www.facebook.com/mygaybanjo)
- Bell’s Roar (www.myspace.com/bellsroar)
- The Rude Mechanical Orchestra (www.rudemechanicalorchestra.org)
Where: Sycamore Bar, 1118 Cortelyou Road between Westminster and Stratford (Q to Cortelyou)
Get out your calendars: August 19, 2009, 6-11pm
Do I get a take home souvenier to remember this momentous achievement? Yes! Local artists have designed Third Root posters to auction off, and we will have Third Root tote bags for sale! If you didn’t get a tote bag last year to cart your goods around the city, or want ample reasons to bring Third Root into casual conversation, we have your back!
How much? Will it be sliding scale? You know it! $10-20 at the door, with more opportunities to give if you’ve got it!
Can I bring a friend? Can I bring five? Oh yes please! This bar and this event is baby- and child-friendly so no need to get a sitter for this night! We have been building a Host Committee of people who commit to bring 5-7 people — if you’re not on it yet but want to be, let us know!
See you then on the 19th!
Angela, Green, Jacoby, Ji-Hye, John, Julia, Romina, and Telesh
