Greetings from the valley, yes, long time no post! As many of you know, I live in Portland now, but still have a stake in both Oceanside and Netarts, and think of my friends and neighbors there often.
So what’s new…. I’m lucky to be a volunteer adviser to a wonderful project, funded and led by Oregon’s own Meyer Memorial Trust. You can read more about this on their web site, but to make a long story short, they’ve built a place (platform) on the web designed to help Oregon communities better help themselves, to collaborate, share information, find kindred spirits, and do all those things that community minded folks do every day out of the generosity and love for their community.
So, when I heard Oregon Unlimited was taking the show on the road to roll out this fantastic resource, I said “You have to go to Tillamook County, it’s rich with community projects and a vibrant non-profit and volunteer culture”. So there you go! They’ve booked space at the Tillamook Bay Community College on April 5th so they can show you what we’ve done, and ask you what you think, and are treating you to lunch to boot!
Meyer Memorial Trust Oregon Unlimited Road Show
Tillamook Bay Community College, Rooms 214/215
4301 3rd Street, Tillamook, OR 97141
Friday, April 5, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Be sure to register – it’s free of course but you need to let them know you’re coming so you don’t have to watch other people eat. While you don’t. Nobody wants that.
You can read more about Oregon Unlimited in context, in Doug Stamm’s blog
And go explore the Oregon Unlimited portal – or what’s I’d describe as a community organizer’s technology nirvana.
