Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

What do you do if you throw a party and no one you invited comes?

That’s what happened Saturday, March 9 to Growing Gateway ecodistrict board members and community organizers Colleen Gifford, Arlene Kimura and Linda Robinson at their kickoff party for Re-Energizing Gateway, the ecodistrict’s first project.

Growing Gateway threw a part to announce Re-Energizing Gateway, the ecodistrict’s first project, but none of the senior homeowners invited attended.

Using a $5,000 grant from the East Portland Action Plan for the party, organizers failed to attract one person the project claims to want to help.
