Neighborhood Waves had a great day visiting Gresham

What a great day we had on our first group outings to Gresham!  The day started out with a visit to Fire Station 71, then it was off to Gresham Station Mall to make embossed greeting cards with our new friends at the Craft Warehouse!  We rounded out the day by posting our group up at Starbucks to recharge, relax, and hang out with friends!  

Thank you to our wonderful hosts for a day well spent in your fine city!

In May and June, we will be exploring Portland's Mississippi neighborhood. Thanks to the following businesses for taking part in either by providing a coupon or tour:

  • The Rebuilding Center

Neighborhood Waves Update

Every month or so, we pick a different neighborhood to explore as part of our “Neighborhood Waves” program.  During that month, we encourage the people we support to explore that neighborhood’s shops, restaurants, parks and trails, making new friends along the way.

Our most recent neighborhood was Beaumont/Concordia, where we had the pleasure of touring the Concordia New Seasons Market and McMenamins Kennedy School.

At New Seasons, we were greeted with tasty samples in each department. The locally made cheese and pastry sample were especially popular, and so was an impromptu lesson on how to properly filet a salmon.

At McMenamins Kennedy School, we learned about the building’s past (it used to be an elementary school) and about the fantastic murals, several of which were created by middle school students. 

What’s next, you say? Well, for the months of March and April, we'll be focusing on Oregon City. So far, we’ve planned tours of Oregon City Fire Station #15 and Sycamore Lanes Therapeutic Riding Center. If you'd like to expore the neighborhood, too, please click here to get  a coupon to use at participating businesses in April.

UCP Gets a "Behind the Scenes" Tour of Sellwood New Seasons

A group of people we support received a "behind the scenes" tour from the Sellwood New Seasons Market as part of Neighborhood Waves.

We had lots of fun learning new things, and tasty samples were tried! The smoked salmon and the lemon bars were the favorites!

Thanks, New Seasons, for the great time and for being a part of Neighborhood Waves!
