Watch for the Signs
Watch for these Meeting Signs the week before our meeting. They are white with red printing and will be posted at intersections around the neighborhood. We were able purchase these signs with assistance of the City of Gresham Neighborhood Grant Program, and volunteer hours to set them out and retrieve them. SIGNS NOW also made a generous contribution to this project.
Mark your calendar and plan to attend!
See you there!
