February General Meeting: Thursday 2/21 at East End Community Center

Because the second Thursday of the month is Valentine’s Day, we have pushed our general meeting to the third Thursday.

This is the first meeting in a series where we will be rotating throughout locations across Portland, and spending time discussing hyper-local issues in addition to our regular business. This first meeting will be focusing on the East End, which is District 1 for the City Council.

Time: Thursday, February 21, 6:30pm – 8pm.

Location: East End Community Center, 195 North Street, Portland, ME 04101

An agenda will be posted at least a week prior to the meeting, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own thoughts, concerns, and ideas for the East End. Please bring your friends & neighbors!

Stay tuned for more details, and please be sure to RSVP on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/950370028686710/
