With a Small Neighborhood Grant, received from the East Portland Neighborhood Office (EPNO) in early 2009, an outreach program for Friends of Gateway Green was established as soon as the group was officially formed.
Since then, FoGG has taken its display to more than 180 community events, including nearly every Sunday Parkways events, the East Portland Concert series at Ventura Park, numberous Movies in the Park events, Metro Trail Fairs, and many more.
In another effort to keep in touch with project supporters, a Friends of Gateway Green group on Facebook and set up a GatewayGreenPDX account on Twitter, as alternative ways to receive updates about the project's progress.
At the same time, Jeff Ong, our volunteer webmaster, launched the website in October 2009, and set up an email list that individuals can sign-up for to automatically receive periodic project updates.
Six years have passed and FoGG is working on a major update of the website, to be launched -- we hope -- by the end of 2015.
