Rosewood Repair Cafe!

Last Thursday, August 14th, 2014 the Rosewood Repair Cafe went on! There was 53 participants with 65 items brought in to be fixed. The community brought in bikes, sewing machines, small appliances and other items to be fixed! Everyone went home with the effort of trying to relive what they had brought, or went home with an item in their hands that could be of use once again!

We’d like to thank all the volunteers that came out and helped around or helped fixed the items the community brought. We appreciate it!!

http://www.repairpdx.org/ go to Repair PDX and check out different locations, in case you missed this one or have more things you’d like to get fixed!

National Night Out Week Event !

St.Joseph The Worker Church hosted a National Night Out event last Thursday outside of Rosewood! The community came out and partied together for the free community dinner that took place. The Portland Fire Department, Portland Police Department, and a police officer from Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office came out as well to make a connection with the community for a feel of safeness! We all had fun bringing this awesome event and seeing how many others enjoyed it!
