As you run errands or enjoy some of our local Sisters area shops and eateries this week, you might notice flyers announcing our upcoming Civility Project quarterly event—"Up, Up & Away...Soaring Toward Better Communication." Make sure to mark your calendars, because a lively, positive and educational evening is planned.
Our Spring Quarter 2016 information and skill-building sessions are set for 5:15-6:30 p.m. and 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, at the Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District Hall, 301 S. Elm St, in Sisters. The first session will offer an overview of the Civility Project and how to apply its "9+1 Tools" for better communication in your civic and daily life. The second session will spotlight the Tool "Listen"—with expert advice and activities geared around helping you better understand and better communicate with friends, family, neighbors and other associates.
In addition, C4C will share news about the progress of the Civility Project. During the past 10 weeks, approximately 20 area businesses, civic organizations, boards and associations have officially adopted the Project's "9+1 Tools." We're hoping to have several representatives of these groups in attendance on the 27th to share their experiences.
The Civility Project is focused on being an authentic, grass-roots effort; so we're encouraging ALL area residents to grab a friend—or two or three—and attend this FREE community event. You don't have to RSVP, but if you can, that will help us plan ahead. You can RSVP online HERE. Hope to see you on the 27th!
