POTLUCK: 6:30 pm
PROGRAM: 7:00 pm
HINT: If you haven't been to the Oregon Sierra Club's office, please take the time to check it out on Google Maps using the Street View. The office is tucked away and seeing it on Street View will make it much easier to find the evening of the Event!
As a reminder, "YES" is a social commitment, not a back up to other plans. Please be considerate. No Shows & Last Minute Cancellations negatively impact the Potluck, your fellow members experiences & their future RSVP's, and your Host. If you can not attend the MeetUp Event that you have RSVP'd "YES" to, please update your RSVP at least 24 hours prior to the start of the Event so that your Host can correctly configure the room and have enough food available & minimize waste. Thank you for your consideration!
