Hey! Announcing the July Blanchet House/TRL extravaganza. Calling all Lizards to volunteer and have fun at the same time.

WHAT: Help serve dinner to the homeless.
WHERE: Blanchet House 340 NW Glisan, Portland (west side of the Steel Bridge).
WHEN: Saturday July 15, 445P-615P
WHY: It's fun and fulfilling! If you haven't been before, come on down. There will be lots of experienced Lizards there to help you.

Also, we've been known to head out to dinner afterwards at a nearby restaurant...!

In so far: Steve Sanders, Kristen, Drew, Angela, Alan, Gary, Kelbelle, Tim K, Shannon, Joe D, Torrey, Carolyn and me.

Questions, comments, suggestions, contact:

Matt, I'll call the kitchen and advise they can reduce the amount of food they cook because The Exxon Valdez will not be in the house! grin.png grin.png

I feel a little uncomfortable showing up to a homeless shelter by myself. Anyone want to carpool?

If I'm done with work in time (I have an event my students are involved in that day), I'll be there. Odds are good, and it sounds like that cute girl I like to spend time with will be there as well happy.png

Where are you travelling from, Shannon? I'm sure someone would be willing to meet you to carpool. The location isn't all that scary - with the expansion of the Pearl and the revitalization projects in Old Town, the line waiting out front to get in for dinner is the only thing that even suggests you're not heading into the hippest new nightclub in town (although I've never been there after hours... maybe it is grin.png )

Shannon, even if we don't carpool I could meet you somewhere else and walk with you. I can understand that you might feel a little nervous, I was at first too and even so I always head straight in the building. Just let us know what we can do!

The last two months I have parked at the parking lot right next to the building. I didn't see any signs saying not to. You could meet there..

I'm also a newbie, so I'd be interested in meeting too.
