HIGH SCHOOL 13th & CLARKSON The People's Fair is probably the most exciting event of the Spring. With its increase.in size and popularity, it now offers one of the most significant forums of ideas and experiences for this community. It is an opportunity for the people of Capitol Hill to celebrate, to see new ideas and meet neighbors after a winter of hibernation. Capitol Hill is entering into a new, exciting and largely undefined period of growth and development. Many of the old definitions of what cities are and how people live are being turned over. Since the People's Fair is the most public and tangible example of a new and exciting spirit evolving here, we must seek out our most talented and creative resources in creating a community experience at the Fair. «r The idea for this year's Fair is Capitol Hill Alive: We' want to emphasize the joy, the vitality, the excitement of living in this richly historic neighborhood. Sure, Capitol Hill faces problems, and there is much work to be done, but let us not lose sight of why we choose to live here—because it is a great place. What does it take to put on a People's Fair that approaches the potential of the vision we have for it? First, it takes lots of people of all ages and backgrounds coming together to plan and participate. Just a few community activists working on the Fair is not enough—we need scores of residents as well as merchants, professional service agencies, churches, and youth groups all working together to make the Fair really come alive. Secondly, the Fair can become a focal point for neighborhood awareness—a catalyst for bringing people together before the Fair as well as during it. For example: get your neighbors together to plan a block party the v/eek before the Fair. Talk about what you can do together to make Capitol Hill a more joy ful place to live. Another idea: get a group of neighbors together to plan a skit, or a musical group and perform from the show wagon during the Fair. Thirdly, join the parade. Yes, a parade! This year, there will be a people's parade that will leave the Fair Grounds to wind through the neighborhood. This parade is for participating in, not for watching. You can build a float, come in a costume, or just come as you are. ^ Other ideas for the Fair v>^ include a bike race on Saturday afternoon, and a square dance Saturday night. We will also be inviting candidates for the upcoming election. forum on Capitol Hill candidates CHUN FORUM - APRIL 22 On April 22, CHUN will sponsor "An Election Inquiry for the 10th Councilmanic District1'. To date there are 8 announced candidates for this office. This makes a Forum for area residents very important. This will be held at St. Barnabus Church beginning at 7:30 p.m. Come prepared to ask these candidates questions about our neighborhood concerns and how they would dsal with them as city council members.
