Kent Downtown Partnership is busy putting together its 2019 budget and seeks volunteer expertise to help make decisions and support the organization’s efforts for a successful run of events next year.

KDP programs are growing and needs more minds and bodies to help make its activities and events something of a variety for people to enjoy.

Volunteers are sought to serve on KDP committees:

• Art Committee: oversees the Third Thursday Art Nights.

• Safety & Security Committee: meets monthly with Kent Police officers to discuss safety issues in downtown.

• Economic Development Committee: plans the KDP’s Downtown Breakfast Hour, where it educates and discusses downtown development.

• Marketing & Promotions Committee: plans and promotes most of the KDP events.

According to the KDP, the average age of people who live less than five minutes from downtown is 35 years and younger. Knowing this, the KDP needs suggestions and help in getting in touch with this group in hopes they will get involved and attend events.

For those interested in volunteering, contact Jodi or Barb at info@kentdowntown.org, or 253-813-6976.
