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.

AGENDA

 

“Jade’s Jewel” Street Painting at NE 61st and Tillamook this weekend!

For the third year in a row, streets will be blocked off to paint the bright colors on the intersection of NE 61st Avenue and Tillamook street, Sunday, June 25 from 10am-5pm.

Jade Razzano has lived in the Rose City Park Neighborhood all her life and the namesake design called Jade’s Jewel celebrates and beautifies our neighborhood but also slows traffic on the street where her special needs bus picks her up for school. The design is bright and cheery and invites painters of all ages to participate. Parents Joey and Chris Razzano organize the event and donate time and supplies to making this fun event happen but need your help with brushes and donations. Because the paint has a walnut shell additive that prevents slippage, brushes have to be thrown away at the end of the day – so the event is BYOB (Bring your own brush :o) and we are happy to report that the dollar tree on Sandy sells brushes 2 for $1). While the cost of the paint is discounted through the Village Building Convergence and City Repair, and the Rose City Park Neighborhood Association has donated $50 to support the project, another $200 is still needed to pay for the paint.

Donations can be accepted the day of the event or at any time. Tents will be set up and music provided for a fun, family-oriented event that you can help with for an hour or all day. There may even be popsicles involved J For more information, there are two pages of information: Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/StreetPaint2015/) and NextDoor. Hope to see you there!
