Foster Night Rides

There is a new community-led event that has sprouted up and is already gaining some (pardon the pun) traction. It is called Foster Night Rides and is planned to take place every other Tuesday. You can find the group on Facebook as well as Instagram.

The next ride is planned for Tuesday 21-May. Here are the details copied from the event on Facebook

Eat, drink and socialize with your friends and neighbors on the ride of your life. Meet up at the Mercado by the Barrio at 6:30pm ride out at 7:30pm. Be kind to all other travelers, pack out what you bring in and be prepared for anything. This ride has guess leaders and usually end by 11:00pm, usually is 8 to 12 miles. Fun to medium paced.

The group had a ride two weeks ago where they rode to the top of Mt. Tabor. You can see a photo on Twitter from Mt. Scott-Arleta resident, Matchu Williams —

Paint the Town Green Event

Join us on Saturday 1-June to remove graffiti and litter in Foster-Powell! We are currently seeking volunteers for this event (ages 16+ or 5-15 with an adult).

Kink.fm, Metro, City of Portland Graffiti Abatement Program, Solve, SE Uplift, and Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association invite you to help make the neighborhood even more beautiful. We’ll be cleaning up litter and graffiti in various SE neighborhoods throughout the morning and we’re looking for volunteers to join us. You don’t have to live in those neighborhoods to help clean them up! We’ll provide the supplies along with snacks AND lunch; you provide the energy.

Come meet your neighbors and grab a breakfast snack, then we’ll go and make our neighborhood more beautiful! Meetup is at 9 am at Essex Park for a safety talk and to receive clean up tools.

We will start the clean up on the north end of the neighborhood on the SE Powell and 82nd intersection. We will work in teams moving South on both sides of 82nd to remove litter and cover as much graffiti as we can. With enough volunteers, we could also have a group move west on SE Powell to make that area sparkle.

There is a meet-up at the end with lunch provided so that you can share stories of your experience with neighbors from surrounding areas.

Volunteer!
