#OccupyThanksgivingPDX 2 is just around the corner

This year's (second annual) Occupy Thanksgiving PDX 2 will be focused on community and family, and be intentional about being a celebration that is friendlier to women and children.

It will be held in Lake Grove near Tualatin at a private residence, on Thursday, November 22, 2 to 9 p.m.  Carpool and rideshares are also arranged, as there is no direct TriMet service to the area on Thanksgiving Day.

This is a potluck; bring some food/dessert/beverages to share.  Maximum capacity for event: 40.

RSVP is requested no later than Tuesday, November 20 especially if you need a ride (otherwise you'll need to find your way there).
Rideshare board:  
IMPORTANT: We are organizing a carpool between southeast Portland, downtown Portland, and Lake Grove, but seats are limited. If you require a carpool from Portland, please register as soon as possible.  Another carpool is available from Vancouver, Washington and North Portland.    Additional rides may be arranged to/from Bridgeport Village (76), Lake Oswego TC (35) and/or Tigard TC (12/76/78).
