HELPING OUR VETERANS GET ON THEIR FEET

Thank you to everyone at the Milwaukie-Portland Elks Lodge #142 (503-654-9588) who donated toiletries, hair dryers, and everything else that went to the new Veteran’s shelter.  Do Good Multnomah reached out to the Elks because of all the support the Elks have given to them in the past. The Lodge bought four 4-piece place settings of dishes and silverware, dish drains and dish soap for the 41 units that house medically vulnerable veterans.  With help from the State Elks Veteran’s Committee, they were also supplied with laundry baskets, brooms, mops, and numerous other necessary items.  Most of the residents have come directly from tents or on the street, so giving them the tools to get back on their feet and learn how to do things again is a tremendous boost to them.  We forget that a little means a lot to those that have had nothing.  The Lodge also donated the TP and bottled water left over from the Fire Relief Effort.  Thanks again, Elks, for your donations and your compassion.

AN OLGP INFORMATION SESSION ON “THE ROADS WE TRAVEL:

INTERSECTIONS AND EVOLUTION OF OUR LOCAL PATHWAYS.”   (OLGP = Oak Lodge Governance Project).

This presentation on local transportation by Jennings Lodge resident Leah Nagely Robbins, will, among other things, examine the question “How can we get to where we want to go if we don’t know where we are?”  Leah will provide an incomplete transportation history of our unincorporated Oak Grove/Jennings Lodge area, delving into how the pathways and desired lines around and through this area evolved over time and ask what that can mean for our future.  Hosted by the Oak Lodge Governance Project (OLGP), this is the fourth in the series of regular information sessions that provide historical context, background, and cultural perspective on the current governmental structure of Clackamas County.  It is designed with the residents of Oak Grove and Jennings Lodge in mind, but all are welcome.  Please pass this info along to others you think might be interested.  Leah Nagely Robbins, PE has deep roots in unincorporated Clackamas County, and often makes the rounds of local pioneer cemeteries to share the stories of her ancestors to the next generation.  A Clackamas HS and OSU graduate, she has lived in the Portland area most of her life except for some formative years in Southern California and a year in Boston.  Whenever anyone asks, “where do you live?” she answers, “Jennings Lodge, unincorporated Clackamas County.”  Her daughter (Rose) finds it really annoying when she corrects folks who call it Milwaukie.  Professionally, Leah is a registered civil engineer and spent her career to date representing TriMet as a leader delivering major light rail and infrastructure projects including the Yellow, Green, and Orange line, as well as planning for the SW Corridor Project. She has worked with every transportation related jurisdiction in the region and respects the existing processes and partnerships while looking forward to new opportunities to connect within and across our communities.  For additional information on OLGP, see General Interest Item # 15 near the beginning of this Newsletter.  To attend this informational Zoom meeting, pre-register at https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJ0kc-CspzksHNZNxzxEsTLHxqwFLFGCgvJV
