Next White Center Business District Mixer to include dispensary discussion
From the White Center Community Development Association: Tuesday, April 19, 6-7:30 pm is the next White Center Business District Mixer Meeting, and the agenda includes a discussion of the impending openings of medical-marijuana dispensaries in WC, including the one we’ve already reported on here. The announcement says WCCDA has “invited the owner of one of these businesses, the G.A.M.E Collective, to attend our mixer meeting and he has accepted. We have invited folks from the health organizations, law enforcements, and social service organizations to attend as well.” GAME Collective, whose other dispensaries include one in West Seattle, is believed to be moving into the former Hang Around Bar and Grill space (The Wall before that), whose onetime owner identified it as the setting for a TV interview done recently by GAME owner Brionne Corbray.
The agenda for the Business District Mixer also includes, from the announcement:
1. Annual White Center Spring Clean Event (May 14, 2011): drawing over 400 volunteers completing about 20 projects throughout the community. Registration is currently open; a fun event for the entire family. Volunteers received free “I heart White Center” t-shirt, breakfast, lunch and entertainment.
2. Social media marketing: assistance to businesses to set up business Facebook account
3. Business Resource Guide: a brochure to assist existing and new businesses finding relevant resources from governmental and private agencies
4. Shopper Incentive Card: guide to find discounts and good deals in White Center.
The location is TBA; we’ll add it here when it’s announced.
New businesses are opening in our business district:
1. Opening of the South Gate Roller Rink:
2. Upcoming opening of Zippy’s Giant Burger:
3. VN Market and Trading Company, LLC – a new food store on 16th
At any rate, we are building on great momentum in the White Center
community; let’s keep it strong:
