Welcome to the very teeny tiny beginning of fall! Just because the seasons aren’t changing doesn’t mean the social committee isn’t hard at work planning events to bring our community together.
Our next exciting event is an opportunity to meet your neighbors, check out their cool wares and pick up a few treasures at the Annual Yard Sale. This event will run for two days, on Saturday September 16th and Sunday, September 17th from 8am–3pm each day. Maps of participating houses will be made and posted to the CNA website and will also be available at each participating house.
In October, we are working on two cool things for you! First, we are looking for new ways to enjoy the decorations, haunted houses, and events celebrating Halloween in our neighborhood. Stay tuned for more information and please reach out to the Social Committee at Social@ConcordiaPDX.org if you have ideas. Second, we will also host our Candy & Goodies Giveaway at the lovely Bar Cala. Details will be announced as we get closer.
And remember, the Community Room at McMenamins Kennedy School is available to rent for your own social gatherings. The money supports CNA social activities, all of which are open to our neighbors. Book the space at ConcordiaPDX.org/community-roomrental.
These events run on team spirit and dedicated volunteers are still needed. If you have a particular interest or would like to volunteer, please let us know. Our social committee meetings are on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at various locations. Drop in, come for sweet treats or just say hello. We will change locations monthly and post reminders on our social media pages and our website.
Michelle, alongside her husband John, loves connecting with neighbors and creating opportunities to build deeper connections in our community. She is an avid quilter and loves antiques.
