Soap Box Derby!

January 19, 2011

In the spirit of community-building, collaboration and FUN, SE Uplift is offering to facilitate a coalition soap box team to enter in the annual August PDX Adult Soap Box Derby at Mt. Tabor Park.

On Monday, January 31st, SE Uplift will host a meeting to explore the feasibility of a SE Uplift Soap Box Derby Team. We need, at minimum, 10 volunteers to commit to involvement between March and August. Expectations and roles will be decided on as a team. SE Uplift will serve as a teammate, organizer and facilitator, as needed – but individual teammate commitment, reliability, and follow-through will determine the fate of the SE Uplift Soap Box Derby team. Other than planning and building meetings (scheduled by the team), teammates will participate in the mid-April registration process, as well as the actual Soap Box Derby itself in mid-August.

If you are unable to attend this meeting but you are interested in participating on the team, please email soapbox(at)southeastuplift(dot)org. For details on the 2010 Derby, view the Racer Packet here.

We look forward to creating, building, toasting and laughing with you!

Meeting: Monday, Jan. 31st, 7-8pm, SE Uplift offices (3534 SE Main St.)

Bicycles for Humanity

January 19, 2011

In April of 2010, the BCA was contacted by Jenny Leonard, a student at Reed College. In 2008, while studying in South Africa, Jenny met Mercy, a 16 year old high school student who walked for three hours each way, every day, to get to school. The experience inspired Jenny. Partnering with an organization called Bicycles for Humanity, she set out on a mission to collect donated bikes and send them to impoverished students in South Africa.

On New Year’s Day, we received an update from Jenny via e-mail:

This year has seen a lot of good things. The container that shipped 300 bikes from Portland, Oregon to Cape Town, South Africa now stands at the Oval Noord High School in Mitchell’s Plain.  All 300 bikes have been distributed, the majority going to schools in the Mitchell’s Plain area.  The container itself will be made into a bicycle shop and will be providing the mechanical support needed to keep the bikes going for a long time.

There are many adventures in store for your bicycles.  They will be used by school children, carry precious cargo, and they might even compete in sports and races.  As for me, I also have adventures planned.  I will be attending the University of Cape Town to get my Master’s in Creative Writing. And I’m starting a new project.  I want to write a novel addressing current environmental issues, specifically related to globalization, sustainability and culture.  If you are interested in this idea please follow my link to Kickstarter, a website that provides a funding platform for creative projects: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/931725995/storytelling-an-environmental-perspective.

I’d like to thank each and every one of you for your support during the last year and a half. There were many times I thought I would give up. But with each bike donated, each dollar given, each stranger that showed their interest and support, my confidence grew. And look what we were able to accomplish. Hundreds of kids now have access to better transportation to and from school.  Thank you for making this possible.  Best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.

Buckman Community Association: Join Us!

September 10, 2008

The nine member Board of the Buckman Community Association welcomes all residents and business owners or otherwise interested persons to become members of the Buckman Community Association. Buckman, the first eastside neighborhood of Portland, is bounded by SE 28th, Hawthorne Blvd., East Burnside Street and on the west, the Willamette River. While most of the thousands of residents live in “East” Buckman (east of 12th Avenue), “West” Buckman, a designated industrial and commercial sanctuary, contains a historic district, is home to over 17, 000 jobs and has dozens of excellent eateries and nighttime venues.

Your neighborhood association is the place where you can come to find out about current happenings and plans in the area, meet and get active in progressive planning and projects, get assistance with perplexing and difficult issues, and volunteer your time, energy, ideas and leadership skills. We host three meetings a month, all at Buckman Elementary School, located at 320 SE 16th. Meetings are held either in the cafeteria or the library. While there is plenty of room for large gatherings, feel free to bring your own lawn chair (as it is after all a K-5 school).

The first Thursday of the month is the Board Meeting held 6-7:15pm so you come by and can still get to any first Thursday events of interest. At this meeting the Board discusses upcoming issues and sets the next week’s general meeting agenda.

The 2nd Thursday is the General Meeting, held 7-9pm. This meeting allows for in depth discussion about proposed plans and changes, and provides for community organizing.

The last Thursday of the month is the land use and public safety meeting, held 6:30-8pm. This meeting provides property owners and developers an opportunity to air their proposals and also is attended by our own Officer Robert Pickett and Officer Andy Edgecomb to help residents deal with crime, drug problems and livability concerns.

The BCA also has two sub-committees. The Sustainability Committee is a group that wants to get involved with creative energy and conservation projects in Buckman and inner East Portland It meets the 2nd Weds of each month at 6:30 also at Buckman Elementary.

Finally there is the Buckman Historic Committee which works to preserve the historic character of Buckman. This group is led by Christine Yun. Contact her directly for meeting information at  pyung@pyung.com.

So, do you have a project you’d like to get started?  Do you have an idea on how things could be better?  Do you want to meet your neighbors?  Are you interested in getting the Community Center in place?  Looking to volunteer and help your neighbors?

Please join us at any of the above meetings. Your participation is always welcome.

Your can also always email us at buckman_comm2000@hotmail.com, (503) 236-2214 or visit our website http://www.neighborhoodlink.com/portland/buckman/
