November Monthly Meeting 2013

Hello Neighbors,
This is a reminder of this months meeting Tuesday, November 19th at 7:00 PM. This month we will be meeting at  Zero station 222 Anderson St. 

We will discussing Jan Piribeck’s East Bayside King Tide Party. King Tides are the highest tides of the year. Elevations flooded during today’s King Tides will be flooded more often in the future as sea levels rise. King Tides offer a glimpse of the future here in Portland, and around the world. In 2013 there are seven tides with a predicted height of 11.6 feet or above in Portland. The only King Tide predicted to occur during daylight hours in 2013 is expected on December 4th.

We will be meeting our new Senior Lead Officer Jeffrey Druan, who will be working with Suna in the community policing center on Mayo Street.
