4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
 
Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center
(the former King Louie West)

Please note the change from our usual meeting date and location!

 

This is a great opportunity to visit with other interested and interesting people with whom you share common ground. Make your own sundaes with as many toppings as you like! Bring along a friend
or neighbor (or two or three) to learn more about GAGV and you could even win a special prize.  

Looking forward to record-setting attendance, seeing old friends and making new ones!

If you have some extra time, plan to visit the Center’s award-winning museum and exhibit gallery on the lower level. You can tour the museum from 3 to 6 p.m. for just $4.

 

It’s a Great Day to Wear Orange

Saturday, June 2
2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Gregg / Klice Community Center
1600 E. 17 Terrace, Kansas City, MO

Saturday, June 2 is Gun Violence Awareness Day, and we urge everyone to wear orange as a symbol of solidarity with the movement to stop gun violence. GAGV and the Heartland Coalition
are joining with the planners of the Juneteenth KC events for a WEAR ORANGE PARTY. 

Join us for family fun activities and plenty of good food! We will have our Lock It for Love Display and Voter Registration will also be available. 

This is a great way to show our concern and common goals with the entire Kansas City community. We urge you to attend so people see lots of GAGV members in their orange t-shirts – bringing their
grandkids, friends and neighbors!
