The Yard Signs Are Up!

Wow!  This weekend was our big weekend for yard sign canvassing. And it was a success!  Thank you so much to all of you who volunteered or donated to help me buy these signs. I hope some of you will get to see them on your drive to work or while running errands!

It was a pleasure getting to meet so many people in my community. Many had a PCC story or connection of their own. Once they heard my PCC story, and why I was running, most were happy to let us put a sign in their yard!

My awesome little volunteer helped me pick just the right spots for the signs!

Every time we got the green light to put up a sign we got very excited!

Day 2 was sunnier - and we headed farther west in to Beaverton. Zone 5 encompasses parts of SW Portland and Beaverton, all the way up north of downtown Beaverton!

Thank you so much to Dat, Diane, Elidia, Janet, Lisa, Michelle, and Sal for spending a part of your weekend to help get yard signs out!  Missing from the photos is Dat, who braved the cold and rain on Saturday to come out and help - and who took the pictures of my daughter and I hamming it up in front of the signs!

It was fun meeting up at Walter Mitty's afterwards for some chow, some beverages, and to share our fun adventures with yard sign canvassing.

In local elections like this, yard signs are an effective way get the word out, and I couldn't have done this without you. Thank you all for donating and for volunteering your time to this campaign!
