It’s been proven that singing with others is a healthy way to raise spirits and immediately feel better. 

Lyrics and chords will be available on your screen so you can sing and/or play your instrument along with song leader Keith Parkhurst.

Optional: Be prepared to share one positive thing your family is doing to make the holiday special during the pandemic (time allowing). Seasonal hats are definitely encouraged!

Lead by Anne Tillinghast and Keith Parkhurst from the Backstrokes Sing-Along for stroke and TBI survivors.

Reed Neighborhood News

We certainly hope you are all doing well at home during the Governor’s Executive Order to stay home. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns that we may be able to help with. Below are a few updates that may be of interest to you:

COVID-19 Emergency Relief Resources for PDX (and beyond)

Update From Reed College:
Reed community safety reports that people are not leashing their dogs and it’s creating a lot of problems. They only have essential employees working on campus right now, and they are not staffed to handle such problems. We want to help keep the campus open, please leash all dogs!!!

Like most colleges, Reed has moved classes online for the rest of the semester. There are still about 150 students living in dorms, so they do have essential staff to tend to maintenance, food service, health and wellness, and security. At this point, they have cancelled Renn Fayre, but have not yet cancelled commencement or reunions, but those decisions will be coming very soon. So campus will be pretty quiet for the remainder of the year. 

They hope to keep the campus open as a public space, but can only do so if everyone adheres to the Governor’s Executive Order. All guests on Reed’s grounds must strictly adhere to social distancing guidelines and maintain a distance of at least 6-feet from other visitors. Co-habitating folks can group together, but groups or individuals cannot come within 6 feet of each other. This is obviously easier in some places more than others — Those walking through the narrow paths of the canyon need to be especially courteous when passing slower groups/people or when approaching from opposite directions. Per the Governor’s order, there will be signs around campus to remind people of the social distancing guidelines.

We are very lucky to have such a beautiful green space available right now. Thank you Reed College, for keeping your campus open!

Hopworks Takeout & Beer To-Go in the Neighborhood

Hopworks Urban Brewery, up on SE Powell currently has takeout beer to-go and keg specials running at Hopworks during this 4 week order from the governor.

This is a meeting not to miss!

Dear Neighbors,

This is a reminder that the next Reed Neighborhood meeting has two excellent speakers.

Reed Neighborhood Meeting
Wednesday, November 13th, from 7-8:30 PM (6:30 Meet & Greet)
Room 104 in the Performing Arts Building (PAB) on the Reed College Campus.

Red Cross Presentation on Emergency Preparedness
We hear that Joe Ohana from the Red Cross is an excellent speaker! Please invite your neighbors–our success in a disaster will depend on individually prepared houses.

Gary Granger will give a presentation on the Portland Crow Roost Study. Every Portlander sees families of crows in their neighborhood on a daily basis, but what you may not know is that during the winter the local birds join thousands of others in a dramatic gathering in our downtown area forming a nightly roost. This urban roost is a unique natural spectacle that makes Portland a special place, similar to the annual return of the Vaux Swifts in the Chapman School chimney.
The people doing this Crow Roost study are longterm Portland (and suburb) residents who have engaged in this community science project studying the urban crow roost in Portland for the past 3 years. They monitor the crow roost weekly, do population counts and document night roost locations. They are working closely with Audubon of Portland on this project.
Portland Crow Roost:
We look forward to seeing you there!
