Don’t miss the BAC Board Meeting Wednesday May 9, 6:30 PM at Loaves and Fishes, 3925 SE Milwaukie


Dear Neighbors:

Please make a point to attend the BAC Board Meeting Wednesday May 9th at 6:30PM at the Loaves and Fishes center at 3925 SE Milwaukie Avenue. This is an opportunity to see how the board makes decisions on a monthly basis. To join the board, you need to come to two out of four meetings over a four month period. People join the board for lots of reasons:

  • Be involved with decisions that affect the neighborhood
  • Meet similarly engaged board members
  • Work on issues near and dear to your heart
  • Feel great about your contribution to your community
  • It’s fun!
  • Lots of ways to plug in–from our ice cream social in September, to the Movie in the Park in the summer, to the community gardens that we’re getting established.
  • People are our most important resource

Highlights this month:

  • Ice Cream Social–Help plan this annual event and sign up to volunteer
  • Neighborhood Cleanup Planning and Delegation-We need volunteers!
  • Community Garden update from Lee Kamrass
  • We want to hear from YOU!
