Gizmo .... and the Peoples' Plan for Pandora

One of the last of Victoria's "Apple Tree Gang," Gizmo, passed away recently. A celebration of his life will be held at Our Place on Friday January 14th, at 1:30 pm. (The Apple Tree no longer exists, either.)

In other, but related, news .... the Victoria Coalition Against Poverty released their Peoples' Plan for Pandora, a research report summarizing conversations with 99 street-involved people about their visions, hopes and ideas for the Pandora 900-block.
