Patty Freeman, who co-led the meeting on the levee project has uploaded a page about it on Portland online [click here]

Also from Patty: "Please, if you have not yet had a chance to complete your comment form, take a few minutes and send us your feedback! We have received a little over 30 thus far, but we'd really like to get comments from everyone we can. They are so helpful in developing consensus and direction for the project. We have created a web-based comment form, so those who have not yet commented may do so on line."

Art Show and Sale on November 19th

Come and LOOK - you'll see a variety of gift ideas

The "Bridgeton Blogger" [aka Lynn] is part of a group of artists having a show and sale on November 19th at Havurah Shalom in N.W. Portland.

Artists include Rosana Berdichevsky, Lynn Dorman, Leslie Elder, Robin Esterkin, Diane Fredgant, Carole Glauber, Sara Harwin, Julie Hockley, Esther Liberman, Sharon Segal, Eddy Shuldman, and Sabina Wohlfeiler. We come from various parts of Portland and Lake Oswego.

After a showcasing exhibit at the Oregon Jewish Museum in September, with much larger space available at Havurah, the artists will be showing more of their work and for some - a variety of mediums. Artwork includes paintings, pastels, jewelry, photography, beadwork, painted silks, fused glass, lithographs, textiles, nature art and more.

Art makes for great gifts - prices starting at $2.50.

Havurah Shalom is located at 825 NW 18th Avenue.
The show and sale is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Admission is free. Payments can be made by cash, check, or VISA/MC.

As the work is both secular and Judaic; you don't have to be Jewish to come, look or buy!

Thank you

A big thank you to all who helped out with the neighborhood clean up yesterday, to the rain g-ds that held off til we were done : - ) and to Channel's Edge for stoking us with caffeine as we worked.....

We filled the 3 dumpsters - one was full soon after we started! The neighborhood looks great today - rain and all.

Prepare for the coming monsoons.....

If you did not mail in your ballot today, it's a safer thing to drop it off at the Library or the ballot box at Goodwill on N. Lombard.

It's due IN by Tuesday evening - and why mailing at your mailbox may be iffy....

Let's show Oregon and Portland that our precinct/neighborhood votes in large %'s.
