Come join us for a special, extended Sunday Assembly.
On Sunday, December 11th We will be celebrating the 3rd birthday of Sunday Assembly Portland. Join us for a fun, interactive look back at how it began all those years ago (all 3 of them!). Plus a sneak peek to how we are charting our way forward.
Sunday Assembly Portland will be holding a silent auction interspersed throughout special comedy sketches, music and much, more more. This is NOT your father's assembly!
This is a great opportunity to treat your friends, family and even yourself to unique services and gifts and to support Sunday Assembly at the same time.
Throughout our morning, while we share and build our community, we will take some additional breaks to allow you bid on our silent auction, which will help Sunday Assembly move into a new space.

Let’s take a walk on the trail from Clackamette park, at the union of the Clackamas and Willamette rivers, along the Oregon City Promenade overlooking the Willamette River, then into old town Oregon City, up the only vertical street in America, then walk the bluff trail to the viewing Platform for the powerful Willamette Falls, and back down via the long bluff stairs featuring water features and more waterfalls. Clackamette park is a haven for waterfowl that stay all year due to handouts. The promenade provides amazing river views, and often you can see and hear 3 female sea lions who have taken over an abandoned pier. Old Town Oregon City features a plethora of antique and collectible shops, a giant abandoned mill, and it’s most unusual feature-the Municipal Elevator.
The Oregon City Municipal Elevator is officially "Elevator Street", and is a 130-foot tall tower built in 1955 to connect the lower city to the upper. It's free, staffed, and has an access tunnel and an observation deck up top for amazing river and mill views. Both tunnel and deck are lined with large holographic pictures of the elevators construction as well as some indigenous and cultural local history. It began as a water-powered elevator in 1915, but was upgraded to an electric-powered elevator in 1954. It is an example of Googie architecture, which is reminiscent of the space-age housing structures in the Jetson's cartoon show. To add to this fun, the elevator is also reported to host the ghost of a red-haired boy named Carl Green that died after drinking contaminated river water. From the top, the trail continues and offers views of a huge abandoned mill and the second-most powerful falls in North America-Willamette falls. We’ll take the long easy stairs down to view even more falls (manmade).
This absolutely fabulous walk will be around 3 miles long, mostly on concrete trails and street sidewalks. Please wear stabilizing active footwear such as sneakers, hiking boots or Tivas. Bring water or snacks as needed. Friendly dogs are welcome on leash. They are even allowed in the elevator. If you want to carpool from some distant part of town, then leave a comment and we’ll try to find someone going your way. The walk will take an hour to an hour and a half, but allow the two hour window due to any view breaks or general group lag. This should be fun! Let’s take a walk! Meet/park near the restrooms located straight in towards the boat ramp and to the left from the Clackamette Park entrance. From 99E cross the bridge across the Clackamas River into Oregon City, then take a right on the first street just past McDonalds across from the strip mall. Take the first right, then turn left into Clackamette Park. 1955 Clackamette Dr, Oregon City, OR 97045. Contact organizer Dr. Mindy Curry at 503-995-8674 with any questions.
What is a Living Better Group?
Live Better groups are a small, peer-to-peer support to help you live your best. Whether you want to be held accountable to your goals, need encouragement for creative projects, or simply want some general "got you back" comradery, Live Better Groups are here to help.
They will last 60-90 minutes and last for 8 weeks, with a get-together for all attendees upon completion.
- A small group (8 people) who meet together for 8 weeks
- An opportunity to be supported and to support others as we each set personal goals
- A safe place to share without fear of judgement and to grow in accountability to yourself and to each other
A commitment: if you sign up - please remember that you are committing to 8 weeks of “face-time” with your fellow participants.
Why A Living Better Group?
What you focus on over the 8 weeks is up to you. Living Better Groups help us to:
- Work on personal goals,
- Have encouragement to work on creative projects,
- Learn more about ourselves and to
- Be part of some “got your back” comradery
And…Have chance to get to know some of your fellow Sunday Assemblers!
Although participants focus on life goals, it is important to note that Living Better Groups are not therapy groups.
Time: Live Better groups will run for 8 consecutive weeks beginning Monday, January 2017 from 7-9pm (exact start date, tbd)
Location: N. Portland - near Rosa Parks Yellow line Max station
