Lucky Lab Pub: 1700 NORTH KILLINGSWORTH ST. PORTLAND, OR 97217

LOCATION CHANGE:

We have made a move from the Lucky Lab on Quimby to the Lucky Lab at Killingsworth. Parking can be trickier, so leaving early from home may be smart.

Join us for our monthly get-together with good topics and yummy eats!!

This is where you can hear a speaker or see a film, meet fellow freethinkers, and have discussions over food and drinks served by the Lucky Labrador Pub. It's also an opportunity to connect with others in the community, get updated on our activism and what’s going on in the community, talk to Advisory Board members and give input. The event replaces our previous monthly program, the Metro Monthly.

This month's topic: Preparing for Disasters. (Presented by the Red Cross)

Earthquake Photo

Have you heard of the "Big One?" It's the name of an earthquake that the Northwest is long overdue for. People have spent years discussing the fact that this disaster is looming over us. Some of those people have even moved away from the area for fear that it may happen at any time. Others believe that if it hasn't happened yet, it won't likely anytime soon. (For more information on the "Big One," check out this LINK)

On March 24th, a representative from the Red Cross will come to the Lucky Lab Pub to talk about different kinds of disasters and how you can prepare for them. While they'll cover "The Big One," they'll also discuss fires, floods, and man-made emergencies. Following this, attendees will also be taught the three steps to preparedness: Be Informed, Make a Plan, and Build a Kit. (For more information on this Red Cross program, go HERE)

This event will consist of a 50 minute Powerpoint/lecture, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.
