Mail Box Alert!

Someone[s] have been attempting to break into mailboxes on Bridgeton Road.

If you see anyone fiddling around mail boxes - please call 911. The activity tends to be at night and attempts have been made up and down the road - so it's not localized. We are all potential victims.

Watch POTUS Speech with Friends

If you enjoyed Inauguration morning - join together again for watching Obama's Speech tomorrow

The President's speech to the joint session of Congress starts tomorrow (Tuesday) at 6:00 PM
(Doesn't it feel good to say "The President" these days?)

Join with other Democrats 5 PM to 9 PM to watch the speech at Krakow Cafe, 3990 N. Interstate Ave, 503-954-2200

Party-goers can fortify themselves from the televised Republican response, by playing State of the Union "Bingo." After Obama's speech, revelers will get bingo cards to mark any time the GOP speaker refers to "health care," "education," "environment," "HIV-AIDS," or Haliburton."

First ones to scream "Bingo" win prizes.
