Columbus Day "Celebration"/Convergence on Monday 12-6pm in the Lloyd Center area.
Join us for a variety of activities! Start at Noon @NE 8th & Oregon -site of Earl Bloomies office & Native Fisheries Program & State Building, location of the highest concentration of state employees in Pdx. That building IS open. I believe there will be a group focused on Earl (even though his office is closed Monday)and a group messaging for a variety of "state" focused topics.
