Music Lovin’ Volunteers Needed

The Tosa Tonight Series is looking for volunteers. This could be a great opportunity for neighbors to get together and serve in the community.

Is anyone interested in heading up a group from Pabst Park to volunteer at a show? I am happy to forward along any requests if someone wants to head up a Tosa Tonight Volunteer Committee!

Tosa Tonight Summer Concert Series 2009 – WE NEED YOU! (Yes, summer is almost here!)
The fun, free, and fabulous Tosa Tonight Summer Concert series kicks off its 2009 season in the inaugural year of the Rotary Performance Pavilion on June 24th. For over a decade many people have given of their time, talent and treasure to make a permanent band shell a reality, and now the Pavilion will be used for the first time this summer. The Tosa Tonight concerts are organized to raise money and heighten awareness for the expanding City of Wauwatosa Hart Park.
Performance dates for the 2009 series are June 24th (The Empty Suits and Swing Nouveau), July 15th (Marc Ballini and Stealin’ Strings), August 4th – National Night Out (5 Card Studs ), and August 12th (The Screaming Orphans and Gaelic Storm). Performances begin at 5:30 and end at 9:00PM.
The continuation of the free concert series depends heavily on money raised through donations as well as through profits made at each concert. Volunteers are needed to make these concerts successful. Therefore The Tosa Tonight Committee asks for your help (Neighborhood Associations – please pass this along to your members!!) Volunteers are needed at the Leff’s Lucky Towne tent to assist with food/beverages. Shifts for volunteering run 5:30 – 7:30 and/or 7:00 – 9:00. All four concerts this year will take place at the Rotary Performance Pavilion (Hart Park between 68th and 70th Streets off of State Street.)
If you can offer your time or have questions about the concerts or donating, please contact Mara Henningsen at 414-453-2848 or I also ask that you forward this request to your friends and neighbors as volunteers are the cornerstone of making these free performances a reality.

Clean & Green

Grassroots Effort Begins to Blossom
Saturday, June 20th 9am-noon
You probably noticed it this summer while strolling along North Avenue. Bobby Pantuso noticed it. He came to a TETNA meeting and expressed his concern over the abundant crop of weeds and grass overtaking North Avenue’s sidewalks in recent years. He suggested an organized clean-up along North Avenue from 76th Street to 60th Street.
Kick start the summer with this great family activity. Young and old can do their part to make a difference in our community. Bring your brooms, shovels, favorite weeding tools, and the desire to boost pride in North Avenue. The city of Wauwatosa will provide and collect garbage bags.
Who Can Help?
Businesses along North Avenue
Other Neighborhood Associations
School and Church Groups
Environmental Organizations
Civic Groups
If you are interested in volunteering contact Bobby Pantuso at Watch for updates on the TETNA website.
