You know what else is coming: the General Meeting of the Reed Neighborhood Association on October 13th!  Come share ideas and suggestions for how we can make our neighborhood great.  The meeting will be at the Reed College Performing Arts Building at 6:30 in Room 332.

Also, don’t forget to bring your game cards for the scavenger hunt to the General Meeting. (if you haven’t started, you could probably bust it out by October 13th).   Your winning card could win you a prize…oooh, the anticipation.

Want to see a free (and, honestly, who doesn’t like FREE!?!) movie.  You can at Winterhaven School on October 15th at 6:30 the Parent Teacher Student Association will be screening Black Girl in Suburbia and the director, Melissa Lowery will be on hand for a post movie panel discussion.  If you subscribe to 1859 magazine, then you know Melissa was on the cover.  Also, recently, Melissa was on KATU AM Northwest and also in the Portland Monthly!  Whew, she is making the circuit.  Come for the movie and stay for the panel discussion about the Importance and Value of Discussing Race with Children.  The movie is family friendly and runs 55 minutes.  (Check out Melissa’s Facebook page for more information:( http://www.facebook.com/Black-Girl-in-Suburbia-200754476613676 )
