Installation Celebration!

We had a great Installation Celebration in Two Plum Park today!

The weather was clear and sunny and we couldn't have asked for better.

Hot Cider kept everyone warm and neighbors got to meet and enjoy the Park!

Hooray!

The Bench installation in Two Plum Park is complete!  We had lovely weather over the weekend and I was able to snap this photo and enjoy sitting on the bench!

I'd like to thank each and every one of you who made this bench possible!  After such a long journey, it suddenly feels simple again; a place to sit, relax and enjoy Two Plum Park.

Portland weather in November tends to be rainy, but this deserves a celebration!

Sunday November 24th from 3-6pm we will toast the bench installation with hot cider in the park!  

Stop by, have a seat and discover Two Plum Park!

Bench Nearing Installation!

Hello Two Plum Bench Backers!

I wanted to let you know that the bench for Two Plum Park is nearing installation!

I received a note from the Parks Department today that:

"We have folks doing locates for underground utilities etc this week. Then they hope to excavate and pour the concrete pad by the end of the week. Then ... there is a waiting period of about a week while the concrete cures. At that point the bench and plaque can be installed."

Thanks to Barrett Anderson for keeping me in the loop!

There is rain in the forecast for tomorrow and we've had a few showers lately, so we'll see how the weather treats us, but we are getting closer!

I'll post another update once the bench is installed and we've been able to set a date for an Installation Celebration!

Thanks again for all your support!

Emily

Shipped!

All the Backer Rewards that can be mailed have gone out!  This week I meet with the Portland Parks Department to review our application and discuss where to put the bench!  Right now it looks like the earliest installation would be in June.
