Holiday weekend offers opportunities for service, fun - January 13, 2012

Plenty of folks will be out of town this weekend, but for those of us staying in Portland, Steve Beaven writes in today's Oregonian, there are lots of free and low-cost options for service and fun.

 

Portland Parks & Recreation is offering extended hours at a variety of pools around town.

 

A number of organizations are seeking volunteers for service events: The Clark Center, Northeast Portland Backpack Lunch Program, Tryon Creek State Park, the King School PTA, Friends of Trees, The ReBuilding Center, and Earl Boyles Elementary School. A complete listing of volunteer opportunities can be found on the Hands on Greater Portland site.
