There is an upcoming event the Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce’s is coordinating on Father’s Day called Gresham Sunday Parkway. This is a free event for the entire community to come out and spend the day biking, walking, running on the beautiful trails that Gresham has to offer. The ~6.1 mile loop utilizes the Wy’East Way Path, Springwater Corridor and the Gresham/Fairview Trail with three pit stops (Gresham City Hall, Main City Park, and the Grocery Outlet off of Division) with food, games and entertainment.
The event will take place Sunday, June 18th from 10am – 2pm.
We are still in need of volunteers to help make this event successful. Below are descriptions of the roles volunteers would be doing and attached is a volunteer schedule. Any of the empty blue boxes represent a volunteer still needed for that role at that time and location.
