Portland City Hall
Please join Vanport Mosaic at Portland City Council on May 24th, and make history with us! Mayor Wheeler will proclaim May 30 to be Vanport Day of Remembrance in Portland, 69th years after a flood wiped out Oregon's second largest city.
This has been such a wonderful community effort, and a perfect prelude to the The Vanport Mosaic Festival 2017l, May 26-29. Full program: www.vanportmosaic.org/thefestival
The proclamation will be shared again at the opening of the oral history screenings Lost City, Living Memories: Vanport oral histories: https://lostcity.eventbrite.com/
- on May 27th at 6.30pm, by Senator Jackie Winters, a flood survivor, at Vancouver Avenue First Baptist Church of Portland -- on May 29th at 6pm, by Commisioner Nick Fish at Irvington Covenant Church.
