The Division-Clinton Street Fair and Parade is Saturday, 22 July. The parade starts from Richmond School on SE 41st Ave., led by The Last Regiment of Syncopated Drummers. Portland Police Department provides a ‘rolling closure’, maximizing safety for both the parade and the traffic. (A big Thank You to the PPD.) Clinton Street will be closed from 25th to 27th Avenues. All vendor booths will be within the Clinton Street closure. Fairgoers and vendors both will benefit from everyone together in a place with less traffic noise, lower exhaust fumes, and leisure to browse.
The lot at 2880 SE Division St. is sold. The lease for Tidbit Food Farm and Garden runs ends in October. If it is one of your ‘go-to’ places, go to it. If you have been thinking, “One of these days I will stop there for lunch or dinner”, then make this ‘one of these days’. Enjoy the wide and wonderful variety of carts while they are available. Hawthorne Acupuncture opened its second location at 2700 SE 26th Ave, suite D. The Richmond Clinic announced the Oregon senate passed the Medicaid package with no cuts to services or eligibility. Sessionable opened at 3388 SE Division, the former Eugenios.
We live in contentious times. However you are inclined, you can agree it is important to support the causes that you believe in. What if you could have fun while doing that? On Monday nights the Clinton Street Theater, (2522 SE Clinton St.), hosts the Clinton Resistance Series. There is no charge. You are invited to: “come and drop $5 in a bucket for a good cause.” Each week they show a different film and collect donations for a different charity. This month’s films include, Born on the Fourth of July, (raising funds for Unite Oregon), Stop Making Sense (raising funds for the 4th Dimension Recovery Center), and Stripes (raising funds for Central City Concern). Check the theater’s website for details.
The Richmond/South Tabor Sewer repair Project starts this July and continues for a year. There will be work on Chavez between Powell and Brooklyn and on Division between 58th and 60th. For more information go to portlandoregon.gov/bes/68185.
