This week’s edition of Catalyst Radio features East Hills Council of Neighbors, and a first-ever event for the neighborhood called Gay Day, set for Aug. 4. Claire Fisher is in studio, to tell us about the new event aimed at celebrating the diversity and spirit of inclusion within the neighborhood. This event will run 3-8 p.m. at Cherry Park and is to feature live music, food, informational booths and fun for the whole family.
Fisher also shares more information about the neighborhood association, where she serves as a community organizer, and its efforts to act as a liaison between residents and the city of Grand Rapids, working on housing issues, crime prevention and community building.
