    Hi there,
    I appreciate your blog soooo much!

    My family and I usually go out of state over the 4th of July, but we’re staying in town this year. We have NO idea what to do. We’re thinking of General Canby Day or going to the festivities in Happy Valley Park. Do you have, or do you know of, a list of activities for the 4th?

    […] Aroundthesunblog has compiled a great reference guide for these and more, while PDX Pipeline has listed out screenings at local restaurants, pubs and cafes. Also, check with your local library as they might have a special series just for families or show a movie as part of a discussion. […]

    Great service, I really appreciate as do my friends.
    Might the weekly update begin in time for the Thursday events to be reported by Wednesday. Know that speeds up deadline but
    often I spot thursday events I’d like to enjoy.
