We’re sorry to announce that our April 25th meeting has been canceled – we had both the venue fall through and our speaker become ill in the last two days and we could not arrange a suitable location in time. We will be at the Tony Starlight parking lot to distribute membership pins to any who wish to pick them up from Noon-1pm. Joy Beckerman Maher will perform her Hempcrete demonstration at the May 23rd meeting; we’ll post the location when we have it confirmed.
Our next Membership Meeting will be at the Tony Starlight Showroom at SE 12th and Madison from Noon to 2pm, where we held our first-ever meeting. We will have our new Portland NORML T-Shirts for sale ($20 for paid members, $25 otherwise) and we’ll have our exclusive membership pins to distribute to paid members.
Our special guest for the meeting is Joy Beckerman Maher of Hemp Ace International. She will be delivering her presentation on the miracles of industrial hemp.
We will be coordinating our volunteers for our first tabling event of the summer, the Global Cannabis March, taking place the following Saturday, May 2, at Pioneer Courthouse Square. If you want to be involved in manning our table, please be at this meeting.
We are also building our Portland NORML Street Team to deliver informational fliers to people at the Portland Saturday Market, outside Timbers and Blazers games, and downtown. Street teamers can earn their paid Portland NORML membership with exclusive membership pin through volunteering.
