Do you or someone you know from the neighborhood have old 8mm or 16mm films collecting dust in your basement? Why not dust them off and share the oldies with your neighbors!

As part of this year’s Division/Clinton Street Fair (scheduled for Saturday, July 24), the Hosford-Abernethy Neighborhood Association is holding a block party called “Roots of Our Neighborhood.” Our focus is on the agricultural and cultural heritage of families in our neighborhood.

We are currently searching for old family reels that you would like to share with us. Our deadline to submit is Sunday, June 20th, so that we can organize them into a presentation to play during the street fair later this summer.

For more information, please contact HAND Board Member Amy Lewin at 503-475-3010 or email: Or drop off your reels at 2424 SE 28th Place.
