SE Uplift is building a pocket-park at 36th and Main, and would love to have help putting in some native plants! For a few short hours we’ll plant a portion of the property and spread some mulch. If you have some time to help turn what used to be an unmaintained grass patch into a beautiful native landscape, please stop by. The planting will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 5 at 3534 SE Main.
Contact Tim at (503) 232-0010 ext. 313 or email@example.com for more information.

The Southeast Uplift neighborhood coalition is hosting a community block party in Sunnyside on Saturday, Aug. 27 from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., celebrating communities and neighbors across Southeast Portland.
The Southeast Uplift building and grounds at 3534 SE Main Street will serve as the hub of the festivities, with the entire block of SE Main Street between 35th and 36th avenues filled with an array of fun activities, music, food and beverages throughout the evening.
A number of food carts will be on site, offering food, with St. Josef’s Winery and Coalition Brewing also on hand serving wine and beer. Kids’ activities will also be in abundance, as the Portland Mennonite Church (1312 SE 35th Ave.) will be hosting a Kid’s Corner that will include a bounce house, playground and a host of fun games throughout the evening.
The event will also be a great way to learn about and connect with fantastic community projects, meet neighborhood association and community leaders, learn more about how Southeast Uplift supports your community and meet your neighbors from not only down the block but across Southeast Portland.
If your organization or community group is interested in participating, please get in touch at the email address below. We look forward to seeing you there!
Stay up-to-date with music listings and participating groups at www.southeastuplift.org and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SE.uplift.
If you’re available to help out on the day of the event, there are fun (really!) volunteer opportunities available in short one or two-hour slots — your assistance would be greatly appreciated!
