Help is on the way, North Portland…

June 23rd, 2008

From Brother Randy:

I am a Portlander looking to tell North Portland churches that an 11-Neighborhood mission has been launched in North Portland to help those in need of help with rising gas and food prices.

Our organization, Bright Neighbor, has teamed up with the City of Portland to help neighbors better get to know one another, and to create local networks so people can lend out items like lawn mowers, find local babysitters, set up ride sharing, do cooperative gardening, etc.

We have a public meeting about this North Portland project at the Historic Kenton Firehouse this
Thursday evening at 6 PM. If you would like to attend, the event is kid friendly.

One more thing: Pretty sure that Ron Wood and Keith Richards are wearing wigs.
