The River West Village tri‐fold brochure is hot off the press!
The brochure was produced as a promotional piece to attract volunteers to our village. It will be used extensively in outreach activities, e.g., “Villages 101” and “Village at Home” introductory talks, tabling events at Farmers’ Markets, fairs and festivals, and in fundraising. If you would like a few copies to distribute to people who might be interested in River West Village, please contact Darl Kleinbach (email@example.com)
