At our May meeting we saluted our outgoing President Duane Hanson and held an election for a new Neighborhood Association President.  By an overwhelming majority we elected Pete Forsyth to a 2-year term to direct our board. Thank you both for your service to the neighborhood.

Do you know where your closest BEECN site is? What is BEECN? A BEECN (short for Basic Earthquake Emergency Communication Node) is a place to go in Portland after a major earthquake to ask for emergency assistance if phone service is down, or report severe damage or injury. In South Tabor there is a BEECN site at Clinton Park, but the one at Harrison Park might be closer. For more information regarding emergency preparedness or to find a map of all the BEECN sites in the city go to www.portlandoregon.gov/pbem.

As always we invite our neighbors and interested parties to our monthly meetings; Land Use next meets June 18 at 7 – 8:30 pm, and the next General meeting will be June 20th at 7 – 8:30 pm. All meetings are held at Trinity Fellowship, 2700 SE 67th Ave. Enter on the east from the rear parking lot. For more information go to www.southtabor.org or send questions to info@southtabor.org. We hope to see you in June!
