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.
