Green Streets Drop-In Volunteer Socials @ North Star – 3rd Tuesdays!

Green Streeters at the first Drop-In Volunteer Social in July

Green Streeters at the first Drop-In Volunteer Social in July

We’re experimenting with a fun new way to get some Green Streets work done. Twice a month we’ll be holding Green Streets Drop-In Volunteer Socials – at North Star Cafe, 225 Congress St.,  in Portland.

So come on out for one!  They’re on:

  • 3rd Tuesdays from 5:30-7pm (for evening folks and/or folks with schedules that are more accommodating in the evening)

It’s a chance for Green Streets volunteers to crank out some organizational work in a supportive social atmosphere, so just:

  • Bring yourself and/or a friend
  • Come hear about some volunteer possibilities if you’re new
  • Bring a notepad and/or laptop
  • If you’re on a committee, bring some paperwork
  • Grab a coffee
  • Get some solo or group work done
  • Bounce questions and ideas off other organizers
  • Come when you can – leave when you need to!

Per the above schedule, the next Drop-In Volunteer Social will be this coming Tuesday, August 18th from 5:30 – 7 pm.  Hope to see you there!

    Hi:

    I like your idea of helping Portland stay/get green.
    I just moved into the neighborhood.
    Was wondering if you still ave these drop -in volunteer Socials on Tuesday 7:30 -9 am at the North Star Cafe?
    (first Tue. In Dec. would be on the first!)
    From your website, I could not tell if you are still meeting?
    I’m interested in hearing about local projects since I am a retired organic farmer and enjoyed reading about Sarah Cushman in the Munjoy Hill Observer.

    Thanks,
    Alice

    Hi Alice:

    Thanks for your comment and your interest in Green Streets! We’ve had uneven attendance at the Volunteer Socials – especially the morning one – so have been wondering about paring back a bit. I think we’ll shoot for keeping the 3rd Tuesday of the month in the evening (5:30-7pm) – which this coming month would be Dec 15th. Hope to see you there! (Just look for a few people sitting at a table with a Green Streets poster propped up on it :)

    Please let me know if you have any other questions and welcome to the neighborhood!

    Sarah Cushman
    Lead Organizer
