News from the President

Hi fellow Sunnysiders! June gloom is gone and summer is in full swing! It’s a fairly quiet time at the SNA – always tough with vacations and other goings on. In that spirit, I thought I’d offer a selected list of fun activities that will be coming up this July or soon thereafter in this part of town. I hope to see you at some of them!

Melao de Cuba Salsa Orchestra – Salsa dancing on top of Mt. Tabor! Thursday, July 11th, 6:30 p.m. at the Mt. Tabor Amphitheater

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – A classic. Thursday, July 18th, sundown at Colonel Summers Park

Montavilla Street Fair  – Kicking off street fair season! Sunday, July 28th
on Stark between 76th and 82nd, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Portland Mountain Boys – American Folk on the Ankeny Rainbow Road (by Crema). Thursday, August 1st, 4-6 p.m., 28th & Ankeny

That’s just a few of the multitude of things going on this month! Coming up, the SNA is excited to co-sponsor the Sewallcrest Movie Night on August 30th and meet folks at the Hawthorne and Belmont Street Fairs (Sunday, August 25th and Saturday, September 14, respectively).

We will also be looking for help repainting the Sunnyside Piazza at 32nd and Yamhill. More details in next month’s newsletter, but we hope to have it spiffed up in time for the Belmont Street Fair in early September.

Get out there and enjoy the summer!
