We also have a need for concert "stewards" during the concerts. These are just neighborhood volunteers who walk around the concert, answer questions, help with passing the hat, and assist with cleaning up etc. There is not a lot to it, but it is very important work and we need a few good neighbors to help us, three for every concert.
Do you feel as if you could help and serve as a steward for one of the concerts?
If so, please contact our Concert Series Coordinator,

I am emailing a request, if you would let your neighborhood council members know that Greater Spokane C.O.P.S. at N. 120 Stevens needs volunteers who are willing to work at the COP Shop. This is your COP Shop that is now located in the beautiful and historic 1889 building at N. 120 Stevens on the second floor. We need volunteers who are willing to gift 12 hours a month and willing to work the front desk to help the community in problem solving their concerns and issues.
What is required to become a Spokane C.O.P.S. volunteer is the following:
Complete a Spokane C.O.P.S. application form
Pass a criminal background check
Participate in an interview with the COP Shop NRO and a volunteer.
Participate in mentoring at the COP Shop to learn front desk job duties, and
Complete a twelve hour volunteer orientation within one year of application. The next volunteer orientation class will be held in October 2009.

- Because the beautiful giants that grace the Spokane landscape are nearing the end of their natural lives.
- Because city policy prohibits replacing large trees in many streets where they now flourish.
- Because we want to continue the vision of city leaders who planted 80,000 trees a century ago, so that we could enjoy their beauty and shade today.

Pies on Us! Pie's On Us! Pies' On Us!
This Wednesday, June 3, from 6:30 to 8:00 in the evening we will be having our monthly Browne's Addition Neighborhood Council/Steering Committee gathering. To mark the mid point of the year, we are pulling together the needs and ideas folks identified at the Holiday Party/Annual Meeting and checking our progress. If you have a new project idea come share that as well.
This will be very informal and also a chance for us all to socialize a little. Soooo, we are having pie and coffee (or other) social as well. So come ready for something yummy and something interesting!
(For those who like to multitask: You can kill two birds with one stone by inviting your neighbors "out for dessert" this Wednesday evening. Then bring them to the MAC for our gathering! Imagine the looks on their faces!)
We meet at the MAC, the Museum of Arts and Culture, 2316 First, downstairs in the Gilkey Room (just go in the main entrance). We are always out by 8:00.
Remember, FREE PIE to the first 2,000 neighbors in attendance!
