This week's events include a really solid mix of lecture, comedy, and rock shows. There’s a diversity that Denton’s possesses that will remain it’s strength for years to come. As we stand on the verge of the largest growth the town has ever seen, it will become necessary more than ever for people to stand up and lead. Whether it’s putting together a comedy show in your backyard or signing up for Mentor Denton, the need will always be there and your community will always need you. Part of what We Denton Do It’s mission has been is to encourage civic participation and engagement because we believe that the more people who are throwing their hat in the ring to help out, the better our town is, the safer our neighborhoods are and a more just society will emerge from that. Sometimes it gets messy, but messy is much better than waking up in a few years to a town that’s lost its way, lost its culture, lost its tacos, and lost its identity. So, get out there and make Denton a place where our community can thrive. In fact, lets leave this place better than we found it because that’s the right thing to do.
