PopUpThe Midtown Ventura Community Council is hosting a barbecue on Saturday, May 6, to celebrate the nonprofit’s 20th anniversary and Midtown residents are invited.

The barbecue will take place from noon to 4 pm at Cooper Hall in Grace Church, 65 MacMillan St. Our volunteers will be providing free hamburgers, hot dogs and refreshments.

Current and past MVCC members are attending along with the congregation of Grace Church and local elected officials. Grace Church has been the MVCC’s host for 20 years and the board is celebrating their commitment of continually supporting MVCC to help keep our community well informed and engaged.

MVCC has strived to be a positive influence in our community, which represents nearly 35,000 residents. Memorabilia from the group’s past 20 years and some interesting historic photos will be displayed.

A few awards will be presented and some short acknowledgements will take place at 2 p.m.

To ensure we have enough food for all of our guests, please RSVP with Dan Long at 653-6573 by Monday, May 1.
