Saturday 9:30 AM KIPP Strive Walk-A-Thon, 12PM BeltLine Ground breaking on Muse and Lucille Ave, 12:30 Fire Station #17 Luncheon, and a wonderful ending  at 7PM – Hammonds House Museum on Peeples, with the West End/ Westview holiday party..

Here are a few pictures- enjoy!!

I also had the privilege to attend the Korean Chamber of Commerce Inauguration and Holiday Party, as the guest of Suna Om- the 19th President, but 1st female President of the chamber!! What an honor to have this lady live within our community- Suna Om has been a great community partner, merchant and friend within West End.
