Our Happy Block needs volunteers!

It's official... Our Happy Block has 24 street trees ordered through Friends of Trees!

Our Planting day is Saturday, December 11th.

Please email or call (971.404.9864) Terah Beth to volunteer....I need to get a head count to make sure we have enough people.

(We need approximately 16 volunteers to do the actual tree planting...and any volunteers willing to make snacks, sandwiches, refreshments, coffee....or just to give high-fives.

Please contact me as soon as possible if you think you can join in!

Here's the deal:

8:30am | Saturday, December 11th.
Meet at the Staging Area | 5329 SE Woodstock Blvd (Our Lady of Sorrows)
This is the Friends of Trees 'staging area' location (there will be coffee and light breakfast items)
We will meet our 'Tree Planting' Crew Leaders, gather planting tools and head to our site (8040 SE Woodstock BLVD)

Plant 24 (!) Street Trees | approximately 3 hours
Trees will be planted on SE Woodstock BLVD and SE Martins Street between 80th and 82nd Ave.

Eat Lunch | we will head back to the staging site and get a light bite to eat.
*** Perhaps we can head over to our neighborhood tavern, The Lion's Eye, for a celebratory drink after lunch?

* Wear work clothes and will be getting down and dirty. Remember to bring rain gear...if rain is in the forecast.

Thank You:
  • Calvary Lutheran Church for holding the community yard sale! ($500 was raised towards Street Trees)
  • Surrounding Neighbors who donated items to the yard sale.
  • McCollum Automotive for donating $265 dollars toward Street Trees
  • Friends of Trees for making this tree planting a reality...they worked within our budget.

Plant It Portland!
