Kit van Buskirk
Claremont/Elmwood Neighborhood Group

Ever wonder how neighborhood groups get started? Talk to Kit, who doesn't see herself as anyone out of the ordinary (Have you noticed how Ashby Village is full of people doing amazing things that they describe as nothing special?)  

VtVConferenceKit Vanbuskirk is on her way to Seattle this October to join thousands of Villagers from across the nation to hear what's new and exciting in the village movement. You can join her...
On the other hand, in case you can't go, Kit will be sharing what she learns, so you can find out what's happening around the country just by staying tuned.
