6:30 PM August 30, 2018 – Asian Health and Service Center
9035 SE Foster Rd, Portland, OR
Ever wonder what the heck are these Neighborhood Associations? What is the Lents Neighborhood Association Board, and what do I need to know to decide whether to run for office in the upcoming election September 25th?
The Lents Neighborhood Association invites the community to bring your questions and curiosity to our informational event, August 30, 2018 at 6:30 PM. We will meet at the new Asian Health and Service Center, 9035 SE Foster Rd, Portland, OR. Paul Leistner, Neighborhood Program Coordinator for the City’s Office of Community & Civic Life, will share with us his experience and knowledge, including but not limited to:
- History and development of the LNA;
- What it has been and what it could be;
- Opportunities, resources and limitations of being a city-linked association;
- the LNA Board;
- Info to make smart decisions about running for an open board position at the Annual Meeting on September 25th.
It’s time for all of us to come together to learn the nitty gritty about our Neighborhood Association and how each of us can contribute to livability in Lents and progress via the LNA. We encourage all LNA members who care about the well-being of Lents to join your neighbors at this meeting.
June 16, 2018, 9 AM – 1 PM
Along SE 82nd Avenue
(Meet at 5613 SE 82nd Avenue at 9 AM sharp)
The Lents Neighborhood Association is partnering with SOLVE, Kink.fm, Metro, SE Uplift, City of Portland Graffiti Abatement Volunteer Program, and more to lead a graffiti and litter clean-up day on Saturday, June 16, from 9 AM until 1 PM. Volunteers will be picking up trash and painting over graffiti along SE 82nd Avenue.
If you’d like to help out, please meet us at the McDonald’s at 5613 SE 82nd Avenue (avoid parking in their parking lot) for a light breakfast and quick training. After the training, we will begin the clean-up on 82nd Avenue. In teams, we will work our way on both sides of SE 82nd Avenue to pick up trash and paint over graffiti.
At the end of the clean-up, we will celebrate all the great work with a free lunch for all volunteers at a central location.
We are still in need of volunteers. If you would like to partake in a few hours of community beautification, meet some new friends, and have some great food, please contact Lents Neighborhood Association board member firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up here. All details will be sent to you by e-mail after you sign up.
Please dress for the weather and bring a reusable water bottle. We’ll provide all materials and training – no experience necessary.
We now have a newsletter that we’ll be sending out twice a month: once right after a General Membership Meeting (to recap major decisions/action items, approved minutes, and committee reports) and a second time ahead of the next General Membership Meeting, to share draft minutes from the previous meeting and agenda for future one.
