OHSU Family Medicine at Richmond

3930 SE Division

During VEG Week, October 9 – 14, Division Clinton’s vegetarian and vegan restaurants offer signature entrees at half price. Featured restaurants on Division are Aviv at 1125, Papa G’s at 2314, Xico at 3715 and Night Light Lounge at 20th and Clinton.

Traditionally, Division Clinton donates a portion of its profits from the Street Fair to a local nonprofit. This year, we donated $500 to the Richmond Elementary School Student Fund. Richmond has a Japanese Immersion Program. The students learn Japanese as well as English. 5th grade students travel to Japan where they stay with families, attend sister schools, visit historical landmarks, and participate in cultural and recreational activities with their hosts.

Community Vision is celebrating Big Reveal, the unveiling of their new accessible building at 20th and Division, at the Nines Hotel on October 19. Tickets and sponsorships are available at cvision.ejoinme.org/2017Ball. Community Vision’s Seven Corners Collaborative is a universally-designed space that will house 5 nonprofits. The nonprofits serve people with disabilities throughout their life span. The building includes an assistive technology lab and an accessible kitchen.

Maripoll opened at 3080 SE Division, replacing Extend Barre.  Maripoll is a woman’s dress shop run by Chase Hunt and Dennis Mead.  Clay’s Smoke House has a sign up indicating they intend to move into 2865 SE Division, which had housed Loon and was once slated to be Kim Jong Grillin’s Bhap Sang.

November is the beginning of holiday shopping season and Division Clinton is planning a special Small Business Saturday celebration on November 25. Look for details next month.
