October BCA Meeting: Thursday, 10/12/2011, River’s East Building


Finding a consistent meeting spot for the Buckman Community Association has been a bit of a bugaboo the last year or two, so we apologize for any confusion and/or inconvenience this has caused you. Our goal is always to maintain stability in our meeting locations, to make it easier for people to participate.

The good news is that, starting next month, we’ll be returning to one of our regular locations, Central Catholic High School. For the October meeting, however, we’ll still be at the River’s East Building, our usual summer home. Below are the details:

Thursday, October 13th
River’s East Building
Mt. Adams Room, 3rd floor
1515 SE Water Avenue, Portland

Starting in November
Central Catholic High School
2401 SE Stark Street, Portland

As is always the case, meetings are on the second Thursday of every month. The BCA board meets from 6-7pm, followed by the general meeting from 7-9pm.
