September 8th, 2022 SNA General Membership and Board Meetings

Our Sept. 8th General Meeting will be held in person at SE Uplift (3534 SE Main St) from 7-8:30 p.m. We also have a Zoom link for those who don’t want to attend in person (see agenda for link).

Our guest speakers will be Melanie Billings-Yun and Vadim Mozyrsky. Melanie will speak in favor of the upcoming Portland Charter Commission ballot initiative and Vadim will present the opposition standpoint, so come prepared with questions.

This will be an important meeting because at the end, we would like the SNA membership to vote on whether or not to endorse the initiative. We need at least 15 members present in person or on Zoom in order to hold a full vote. If we don’t have at least 15 members, the board will vote on the measure, but we really want to have a larger neighborhood voice on this issue. So, please join us and bring a Sunnyside friend!

  • SNA General Membership Meeting from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
  • SNA Board Meeting from 8:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Both meetings are open to the public. 

Meeting Agenda. Times are approximate. Agenda items are subject to change.

Artist Unknown: an art show + fundraiser

September 2 + 3 @ 5 – 9pm

An art show + fundraiser featuring the creations and discoveries of outsiders: those who find themselves caught living outside. Donations will go toward fixing the windows at the Sunnyside Methodist Church, as well as compensating the homeless artists for their work.

The resident Sunnyside Shower Project puts on the show at the church, under the course reflection of these broken windows like unfinished puzzles, in an effort to repair what others might have otherwise left broken.

Free Movie in Sewallcrest Park, Saturday 8/27

Free Movie in Sewallcrest Park, Sat. 8/27: Raya and the Last Dragon

The Richmond Neighborhood Association, in partnership with Portland Parks & Recreation, is presenting Raya and the Last Dragon (2021, PG) in Sewallcrest Park (SE 31st Avenue and Stephens Street) on Saturday, August 27.

This animated Disney film “travels to the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons lived together in harmony long ago. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people.”

The movie starts at dusk, around 8:30 pm. Come early to put down your blanket and low-back chairs. Full Moon Stomp bluegrass band will play 7:30 – 8 pm and One With Heart kids class will perform a martial arts demonstration after the band.

The HAND neighborhood association is a co-sponsor of this event.

You’re Invited! Painting a street mural on Washington Street

You’re invited to join Sunnyside neighbors for a party and street mural painting on Saturday, August 13th!

More details can be found online here.

What: We’re painting the street at SE 42nd and Washington St. to create community, pay homage to the stream that once ran down Washington Street, and to create community!

Why: Street murals are proven to slow down cars and help prevent crime. And they are fun. So, win-win-win.

Details: We’ll have music, some might dance, everyone can help paint, and there will be light snacks.

And at the end of the day, we’ll have a beautiful street mural to enjoy : )

And if we don’t finish the painting on August 13th, we might paint on August 14th (Sunday) too.
All ages.

Where: SE 42nd & Washington Street, Portland
