Join Portland Green Streets at Local Sprouts Café! (Thursday April 28th, 6:00-7:00)

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

Calling all Green Streeters! Come join Meredith at the PGS Drop-in Volunteer Social this month at a new venue, Local Sprouts Café from 6:00-7:00 on Thursday, April 28th! Local Sprouts Café is located at 649 Congress Street in Portland. We will have volunteer opportunities and would love to hear about your interests and ideas for sustainable transportation!

About PGS Socials: Every fourth Thursday of the month we hold a Green Streets Drop-In Volunteer Social. It’s a chance for Green Streets volunteers to get some solo or group work done in a supportive social atmosphere, so just: bring yourself and/or a friend, come hear about some volunteer possibilities if you’re new – or if you’re already volunteering, bring a task to work on, grab a coffee, bounce questions and ideas off other organizers. Come when you can – leave when you need to. We’re excited to see you there!
