For several years, St. Peter’s has provided volunteers to serve dinner on the first Wednesday of the month at One City Cafe (previously St. James Kitchen.) The crew could use some new members–please contact parish secretary Mary Pfeifer if interested. It is fun, rewarding, and only requires about 2 hours of your time. (4:30-6:30 p.m.)
You are invited to join the Landscape Maintenance Committee for Weeding Wednesdays on the St. Peter’s campus every Wednesday evening, 7-8 p.m. Come spend an hour amidst the calm & quiet of the beautiful flower gardens of St. Peter’s. It’s that time of year when a little more work needs to be done each week, so let’s enjoy it together! Come when you can, no experience necessary. Bring your gloves and favorite garden tools and meet in the Legacy lot. Bug spray and water bottle also recommended.
The City of Kansas City is hosting a public meeting for the Meyer Boulevard Improvement Project: Ward Parkway to Troost, on Thursday, June 20, 6-8 p.m. in St. Peter’s Church basement. The purpose of this project is to improve safety along Meyer Boulevard while providing curbside parking and accommodating not only vehicles, but also bicycles and pedestrians. The project will also explore parking alternatives to Brookside Boulevard (Meyer to 63rd St).
The meeting will begin with a presentation at 6:15 p.m. It will provide an overview of the project, ideas for potential improvement concepts, and more. Representatives from the City and consultant team will be present to discuss. Don’t miss this convenient opportunity to learn about this important project.
