“This will be a fun evening of LIVE STAGE PERFORMANCES about what it means to be a refugee, immigrant, and Muslim in Portland. There will also be performances of different cultural music and dances. We hope that you will join in, but you are welcome to watch and mingle.

We welcome all Portlanders, of all ages, especially refugee and immigrant families. We will have food carts on site serving throughout the evening. We invite you to have dinner here in the outdoor courtyard. This is not a fundraiser. There is no admission price.”

Parkrose Sandy Blvd litter clean-up:
“Spring is nearly here! Let’s keep up the garbage clean ups we started last year and add some seeds to the bulbs we planted last fall. This cleanup will cover Sandy Boulevard between 99th and 121st Place.

Flower seeds will be handed out for planting in the planter strips between the sidewalk and the curb. We will also want to toss seeds in the vacant area between 121st and 122nd just south of Sandy and at Senn’s Dairy. If you have seeds or popsicle sticks to donate, please comment and we’ll be in touch.

City of Portland’s Graffiti Abatement Team will be joining us for this clean up as well, if you see any graffiti please comment here so that we can compile a list for them.

We will meet at Parkrose Hardware to begin our clean up. Parkrose Hardware has kindly offered their dumpsters to us so this is where we will likely end to get rid of the garbage collected :)”

Parkrose Hardware, 10625 NE Sandy Blvd * 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
