I am partaking in an event on May 4 called “SUNday on Saturday”. This event is in support of the SolaRISE program, a collaboration among Portland’s Public School’s (PPS) student leaders, residents and educators united to promote environmental stewardship. On Saturday May 4th we are taking part in a student march from City Hall to Deering Oaks to raise awareness about a project to install solar arrays on the roofs of at least six PPS school buildings. The project is in furtherance of the school district’s goal of being carbon neutral in 2040.
We are in need of marshals (essentially chaperones) to escort the march of students to Deering Oaks. Meet at City Hall by 1 pm. March begins at 1:30 pm. Event ends around 3 pm. You would walk the short route watching for traffic and helping marchers cross the road and get to the Oaks safely. Rain date is Sunday the 5th.
Please let me know if you are willing to help with this important, fun and easy event! Thanks for your consideration.
