The duo appears annually at the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival (the 2nd largest blues festival in the U.S.), and they’ll be performing at Italy’s prestigious Porretta Soul Festival just days before their appearance at Rose City Park! LaRhonda’s daughters Lauren and Sarah will also perform, to complete an evening filled with a mix of blues, jazz, and gospel. More online at larhondasteele.com and louispain.com.

Reminder: Free Concert in the Park this Saturday! (6-8pm)

Reminder to bring the whole family out to a fun (and free!) evening in Rose City Park this Saturday.

Saturday July 22, 2017
Our July 22nd concert will be an Irish Hooley, featuring Nancy Conescu, along with the Murray School of Irish Dancing. Nancy is widely recognized, particularly throughout Ireland, for her vocal and guitar work, where she has appeared on concert stages, radio, and television. The Murray Irish Dance Troupe, well known for its high-energy performances and vividly attractive costumes, never fails to engage its audience, whether young or old. Every performance is marked by toe tapping, foot stomping and hand-clapping in the spirit of Irish culture, music, and tradition. For more information, please visit murrayirishdance.com.

Rose City Park NET has formed! (Neighborhood Emergency Team)

Our neighborhood finally has enough trained volunteers to be able to form it’s own Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET). This team of volunteers will formulate plans on how to best aid Rose City Park in the event of a major disaster (like the Big One!).
Meetings are 6:30-8:30 on the second Tuesday of each month at the German American Society, 5626 NE Alameda St, Portland, OR 97213.  All neighbors are welcome.
If you are interested in talking directly with your RCPNA neighbors involved with NET, or better yet might want to train as a NET member to help prepare your family and others, email emergency-preparedness@rcpna.org.
In the meantime, here are some great resources to learn more about emergency preparedness and the simple steps you should take to prepare for a disaster.
