Sunnyside

By Tony Jordan

 

Sunnyside Neighborhood Association held its monthly meeting July 11 in the Fireside Room at Southeast Uplift, 3534 SE Main St. at 7 pm.  We were happy to meet several first time attendees who expressed a desire to get involved.  As we have two vacant board positions and the need for help on several committees and projects, this was especially welcome.

Upcoming events happening in Sunnyside or with our sponsorship include the “Planet of the Dinosaurs” in Sewallcrest Park August 17, the Hawthorne Street Fair on August 18, and the Sunnyside Environmental School Back to School Exchange on August 26.

Belmont Street Fair is scheduled for September 14 and features two stages for musical events, many vendors and activities, and a 5 block street closure from SE 33rd to SE 38th. Volunteers are always needed; write to belmontvolunteers@gmail.com for more information.

Our next meeting is August 8 at 7 pm at Southeast Uplift.
