May is election month for the Kerns Neighborhood Association. Elections will be held at our general meeting Wednesday, May 20 at 6 pm at the Pacific Crest Community School at the corner of NE Davis and 29th Ave. Food and beverage (pizza, salad and soda) will be available.

Our meetings are always open to residents, property and business owners and employees who work in the Kerns neighborhood.

We are looking for new members to join and share their skills.  Have a passion for sustainability, bicycles, land use or other topics?  Have communications skills? Looking for volunteer opportunities?  We want you.

We will be electing chair, vice chair, secretary, treasurer, communications, and other committee chairs (land use, SE Uplift representative, crime prevention, bike advocacy, picnic) and we welcome members-at-large.

Agendas are posted on our website, www.kernspdx.org, one week before the meeting. You can read our current and past newsletters, past minutes, or sign up for our once a month e-newsletter.  If you have an item you’d like to add to our agenda, contact kernsna@gmail.com.

Find us on Facebook (facebook.com/kernsNA)!  You can also join our Facebook group where members can post news, questions, articles, photos, ideas, events and other neighborhood topics.
