Letter: Come join, participate, expand your awareness

As many of us know, the current state of the economy demands new and innovative ideas that go beyond what politics can provide.

The Awareness Project, known as "TAP," in River Falls, is aware that community members need a place to incubate and develop ideas and strategies geared to solving issues in the city and for all of western Wisconsin.

As a TAP member, as a 2013 recipient of the Chancellor's Award for Excellence and a soon to be graduate at UW-River Falls, I am extremely grateful for this organization. It's had a positive impact on my goals and objectives for entering the professional world.

TAP is a place for informal learning and guidance for planning the beginning stages of life after college.

Julie Draves is the co-founder and CEO of the Learning Education Resource Network with her husband William Draves. Nan Lambert is a local activist and co-founder of Bait and Tackle Bows with her husband Mark Lambert. Together Julie and Nan run The Awareness Project.

TAP will be hosting its leadership, organization, and planning meeting as a potluck on the second Wednesday of every month.

The next meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 8, at 208 S. Main St., River Falls, between Mainstreeter and Treasures of the Heart.
