Possible Dreams 2013 is next month

The Team Haverhill civic organization invites all Haverhill residents to participate in “Possible Dreams 2013,” a community-wide conversation about Haverhill’s future.

Possible Dreams 2013 will be held Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. in the Hartleb Technology Center on the Haverhill campus of Northern Essex Community College. This year’s theme is “Eyes on the Stars, Feet on the Ground” — symbolizing Haverhill’s growing aspirations for cultural and economic vitality, as well as a growing realism about what it takes to implement inspiring initiatives.

Since 2008, Team Haverhill’s Possible Dreams event has brought the community together to envision a brighter future for the city, with an annual attendance of more than 125 people, including local residents, public officials, organizational leaders, business owners and volunteers. Community-based initiatives that were born at past Possible Dreams events include the dramatic expansion of curbside recycling, revitalization of the Haverhill Farmers Market, and establishment of the River Ruckus festival.

The evening’s popular World Cafe format creates a welcoming environment and encourages lively discussion in smaller groups. There is no cost to participate in the event. Coffee and sign-in is at 6:30 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome, but pre-registration is requested to insure adequate seating. Register online at possibledreams.eventbrite.com. For more information send email to TeamHaverhill.PossibleDreams@gmail.com.
