Book Reading: "Rad Dad: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Fatherhood" - Connolly Library at Connolly Branch Library

September 17, 2011 from 10am to 11:30am

Welcome neighbor!

Thanks for joining us on Jamaica Plain's soundboard for voices and springboard for action!

Now that you've joined, please read, post, reply, think about, share, attend, and create anything you wish - if something does not exist that you want - START IT!

Please do take the Neighbor Tour on the front page - it's a video right smack at the middle at the top.

Then please read the blog - When to add a Blog, Forum Discussion, Group, and Event to get a sense of where to share what content.

We're a volunteer run community group run by and for each other. Check out the Community Advocates group for roles that need to be filled and also check out the JP Volunteers group to find out what other organization in JP need help with.

We'd also really appreciate it if you'd invited your JP friends and neighbors to join us. You can do that here -

Thanks again!
Your Neighbor,
