Gardening, Coffee and Donuts @ King Neighborhood

IMG_4662

Next Saturday, April 25th, from 10 to 1 pm

A bit of rain won’t deter any good Portlander, especially when there is free good coffee and donuts. Plus you get to shovel some dirt and mulch to feel less guilty about that extra donut that you shouldn’t have eaten.

Thanks to East Multnomah Water and Soil Conservation District, North East Coalition of Neighborhoods, King Neighborhood association, King School PTA  and Groundworks, the Green King Project is organizing this awesome community event to honor our Mother Earth.

Get to enjoy the fun and the good feeling that comes from changing some ugly neglected areas into beautiful green areas. Don’t miss this opportunity to help out your community, meet your neighbors, do some healthy exercise.  Please RSVP if you can. Location is at King School 4906 NE 6th | Portland, OR 97211 Parking is available in the parking lot in NE 7th and Wygant. We will be meeting close to the playground.

Join Green King and get updates of the event at https://www.facebook.com/greenkingprojec or email diego@kingneighborhood.org from Green King if you have any questions.

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is “What are you doing for others?”

Free Street Fair?

We don’t know who thought up the Free Street Fair, or put up these fliers in the neighborhood, but we’re intrigued to see what our neighbors turn out this Saturday.

On another topic, there’s no rain in the forecast for the weekend, so if you find yourself with some free time and want to help out the King NA with some canvassing, we have brochures and fliers for our upcoming clean-up and neighborhood garage sale that we’d love your help distributing. We’re looking forward to getting out in the sunshine and saying hi to our neighbors along the way!

You can join us by stopping by our meeting on Saturday morning, between 10 and 11 at Reflections Coffeeshop (446 NE Killingsworth), or by emailing us, or giving Alan a call at 503-880-6848.

Changes in KNA Board Underway

At the last meeting of the association, Leslie Cormier resigned as an At-Large Representative and was replaced by resident Maureen Mimiaga. Alan Silver, Secretary and acting Chair in the absence of an elected Chair or Co-chair, is willing to be nominated as Chair if the restriction on the office are removed. Currently, only board members for a period of at least one year are eligible. A change to the bylaws is necessary to fill the office. To that end, the change was proposed at the last meeting and will be voted on at the upcoming meeting November 10th. As for the other vacancies, they are open to anyone who is eligible for membership in the association which is a resident, property owner, or business owner in King. Make a difference in the future of your community and join us at KNA.
