Hillman City Time Capsule Party

Saturday, February 2nd, 10 am - noon
Rainier Avenue Church, 5900 Rainier Ave S

Come see the items we've gathered so far: the amazing glass slipper, the model Hummer, the spinning hubcap belt buckle… and so much more! Plus photographs of Hillman City by our Youth in Focus teen photographer: not to be missed!

This is also your last chance to contribute items to the time capsule. We are accepting objects, photos, and documents that represent Hillman City's past & present, or messages for the future.

Coffee, Cake, and Snacks donated by Starbucks, Borracchini's, and Lola's South City Bakery: Thank You All!

The Hillman City Time Capsule will be installed at the Rainier Avenue Church later this year, and opened in 2057. The Time Capsule is a project of the Rainier Valley Historical Society and the Hillman City Business Association, with support from the Mayor's Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs and the Department of Neighborhoods. For more information please contact RVHS at 723-1663 or moc.loa|eciffoshvr#moc.loa|eciffoshvr.

Obama jammin'

This week the Columbia City Theater hosted a large gathering of local musical talent to record a new campaign song: "Fired Up, Ready to Go". It's an all-volunteer production including Matt Cameron (drummer with Pearl Jam and Soundgarden) and the Total Experience Gospel Choir. The single and its video are all over the internet.

Join the C-City Runners!

Started by a few close friends (who also happen to be Columbia City neighbors) C-City Runners was created out of a need for a low-key and highly social running club with a focus on enjoying the experience of running. A running club where being competitive with yourself is encouraged, but where anyone who has a passion for running or an interest in getting started would find a supportive and welcoming crowd.

Our first group run is scheduled for Saturday, February 2, 2008 at 8:00 AM. Meet in front of the Columbia City Bakery. Find out more.

Columbia Citizens' welcome page now highlights the site's featured updates.
The source text for the Wikli is now simplified and decluttered, making it easier for wiki-newbies to post neighbor alerts.
Cleaned up the land use page for Harbor Properties’ proposed development at the St Gobain site. Now you can download a copy of Harbor’s Early Design packet, presented back in October.
