Are You All In? 

All In For Avoca 37 has two key upcoming events to get the word out to the community and you can play an important part.

In true grassroots fashion, we will be conducting a door-knocking campaign on September 30 and October 7 to encourage people to come to the Open Houses in mid-October.

This will not be about pitching one option. You don’t have to “sell.”

This will be about encouraging community engagement and feedback. Work with a partner, knock on doors, and spread positive vibes to bring people out so they can come to the open houses to learn more.

Sign up below for one of the two canvassing dates and become eligible to win free tickets to Great America for a family of five. Kids are welcome!

Coffee and donuts will be served. If you have any questions, email [email protected]
