East Portland news roundup

April 5, 2010

Three stories in the April issue of East Portland Neighborhood Association News caught our eye:

- In "Powellhurst-Gilbert Gets Wild," Mark White highlights a recent volunteer event along the Springwater Corridor. The wildflower planting event, part of a P-G Neighborhood Association restoration project, drew nearly 40 people to the site, adjacent to the Springwater Corridor between SE 128th and 136th.

- "Sunday Parkways comes to East Portland!," also by Mark White, announces the addition of a Sunday Parkways event to East Portland. The Parkways event will take place on July 18, the day after the East Portland Exposition opens at Ed Benedict Park.

- Annual SOLV IT day is this Saturday, April 17. In East Portland, writes Linda Robinson, volunteers will work at the Gateway Green site. Register with SOLV online, at www.solv.org.
