Meridian Park Neighborhood Association is pleased to announce that they will be hosting another Community Barter on Tuesday August 21, 2012 from 6-8pm at Shoreline's City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N.  This barter event will be co-hosted by Cascade K-8 Community School PTSA. The event is free and open to everyone.  All ages are invited to join the bartering adventure.  

A barter is a gathering where neighbors and friends come together to trade goods and services for fun.  At the last barter, in March, people brought baked goods, fresh eggs, granola, yogurt, hard cider, laundry detergent, kids' toys, records, preserves, tie-dyed shirts, dried herbs, metal garden art, canned chicken and much, much more. A greater amount of fresh Summer produce, backyard tree fruit and Fall Crop starts are predicted for this barter.

Participants are asked to bring a food item to share as well as their own plates, forks and cups.  The first half of the barter will be for setting up and previewing items for trade while enjoying the potluck food. The bartering will commence at 7pm. The only rule is that no money may be exchanged.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Naomi at 206-853-1149.
