Rock the Block! Stay Close to Home and Keep Moving on Nov. 3rd Election Day

The City of Seattle has announced its ‘Rock the Block’ Stay Healthy Blocks to help residents stay close to home on Election Day. Voting is one of our greatest rights and duties as Americans and Election Day is an opportunity for us to shape the future of our communities.
Rock the Block allows residents who want to be with their loved ones and neighbors on Election Day the opportunity do so while remaining in compliance with Phase Two of the Governor’s Safe Start plan. Like all Stay Healthy Blocks, maintaining social distance and wearing a face covering is required. Rock the Block is available for all non-arterial streets and streets will be open to pedestrians from 12 – 9 p.m. on Election Day. For a full list of requirements, please visit SDOT’s blog post.

Donors Needed for the Center of the Universe Relief Fund
Only $9,900 more to go! Can you help?
Our unique blend of small retailers, restaurants, services, and nonprofits make Fremont an incredible place to do business and work. It’s what makes the Center of the Universe, the Center of the Universe! And right now, those friends and neighbors need your help!
That’s why the nonprofit Fremont Chamber of Commerce has launched the Center of the Universe Small Business Relief Fund to help our small businesses & nonprofits impacted by COVID-19. While there are multiple grant relief resources available, we have identified gaps that leave some of our neighborhood businesses and nonprofits without relief opportunities.
