Congratulations to Jeri Stein and Jacinda Perez, the winners (we couldn’t pick just one) of our summer photo contest!
My vote for the neighbor that inspires me is Shara Alexander. Eliot would not be the same without her! Whether she’s in the garden, walking around the hood, or volunteering for any number of projects she throws her whole self in, connecting with humor, kindness, and gusto!
King J is an inspirational member of the Eliot neighborhood and his effort to preserve Oregon’s black history is commendable.
For our next contest the theme is What’s Growing in Eliot. To enter take a photo of your favorite tree, garden, or anything else that YOU think applies in the neighborhood and either email it to News@EliotNeighborhood.org OR post it to Instagram with the tags #EliotPDX and #ENPhotoContest.
