WHAT: Come lend a hand working with the City of Portland Department of Parks and Recreation to clean debris from the pond in preparation for it being filled. The pond is one of the largest casting facilities in the world, and we are fortunate to still have it for public use. Maintenance funds are always in short supply, so our volunteer support is important.
WHERE: Meet at the west side of the Westmoreland Casting Pond, SE 22nd Avenue and Rex Street, just off of McLoughlin Boulevard.
WHEN: Saturday, March 16th from 8:30 am until 1200 noon.
CONTACT: Please RSVP to Steve Gomes via email at email@example.com
