This meeting will be at a different location than our usual monthly meeting. We are meeting at Lents Collective, 9209 SE Foster Road (at the intersection of SE 92nd Ave and Foster Rd).

We’re doing this month’s general membership meeting a little differently:

We’ll be meeting at the Lents Town Center, at the newly-opened Lents Collective (9209 SE Foster Rd), one of the projects that we’ve supported getting off the ground this year. 

Come enjoy some ice cream with your neighbors, hear updates on what’s happening in Lents, and learn about opportunities to serve your community. 

Open to the public. Everyone is welcome to attend! 
Free ice cream. Free childcare.

CANCELLED: General Meeting June 25th, 2019

In place of our monthly General Membership Meeting, in June we are co-hosting a Bike Tour of Lents with our partners at Green Lents. Think of it as Lents’ very own Pedalpalooza, if you will. It’s summer, it’s sunny and warm, and we figured our community might like to take a break from our monthly meetings inside and meet outside to explore Lents and get to know each other better! For the latest updates on the Bike Tour, follow the event Facebook page. If you are able to, we hope you will join us for the bike tour on Saturday, June 29, starting at 10 AM at the Tool Library.

Our regularly scheduled monthly meetings will resume in July.
