  • Festival of fun benefits Children’s Heart Foundation Brian Young

    Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 16, when the Oregon chap-

    ter of the Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF) will hold its second an-

    nual fundraiser and festival of fun. Dubbed “Lion Heart in

    Laurelhurst” by CHF Oregon chapter president Aimee Mooney, the

    event will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the northeast quadrant of

    Laurelhurst Park near Southeast 39th Avenue and Ankeny Street. The

    event will include activities for adults and children.

    The Oregon chapter of the Children’s Heart Foundation was es-

    tablished in September 2004 by Aimee and Joe Mooney shortly after

    their son Finnegan was born with a severe congenital heart defect. Al-

    though their son seemed normal at birth, it soon was discovered that

    the left side of his heart was underdeveloped, causing difficulties in

    breathing and eating.

    Finn had his first open-heart surgery when he was just three days

    old. Two additional surgeries followed when he was five months old.

    He spent the first eight months of his life at the pediatric center of

    Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. In just a little over three years of

    life, Finn has experienced eight major surgeries.

    “Finn is living proof that research matters,” says his mother,

    Aimee. “If people had not given time and money to congenital heart

    defect research fifteen to twenty years ago, Finn would not be alive to-

    day.” Today Finn uses a feeding tube and takes approximately fifteen

    daily medications to maintain proper cardiac function. But his parents

    are excited that he is eating and taking part in all the daily activities any

    other “three-year-old rascal” would. “He’s laughing, talking, and run-

    Mississippi Avenue becomes Mecca for music fans Larry Peters

    Any serious music fan knows them: Sixth Street in Austin. Beale

    Street in Memphis. Most anywhere in New Orleans. Amble down

    those byways and you’re likely to hear everything from blues and

    bluegrass toheavymetal andasolo folksinger. Insongwriters’words,

    it’s music, music, music, and you know that can’t be bad. But unless

    you’re leaving on a jet plane, those places are distant paradises, wist-

    fully mentioned in hushed tones so as to not get one’s hopes up.

    Well, music fans, whisper no more. There is a Mecca for musi-

    cians and music fans alike right here in Portland. On the second

    Thursday of each month, Mississippi Avenue between Fremont and

    Skidmore streets comes alive with music. Already an area burgeon-

    ing with restaurants and shops, on that one evening each month, it’s

    the music that takes center stage.

    On the second Thursday of last month, I strolled down Missis-

    sippi. My trek started at 8:30 p.m. at the Bold Sky Café where I was

    greeted with the following, courtesy of singer/guitarist

    Dylan-Thomas Vance:

    And daddy won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County

    Vance, a solo singer, accompanied himself on lap slide. He

    held the acoustic six-string guitar on his lap, sometimes fin-

    ger-picking, other times playing with a slide while patrons en-

    joyed drinks and dinner. He was drinking Jameson’s neat and

    sang an original tune titled “Coming Home to My Hot Toddy”

    and Paul Simon’s “Gone at Last”. Vance was singing “You’re

    Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” by Bob Dylan

    when I decided to go, thanking him and heading back onto the

    *SEUL BUDGET. The Southeast

    Uplift Neighborhood Program is taking a

    giant leap forward, a bigger one than some

    of its members are comfortable with, in its

    current budget. The draft budget calls for

    more than $85,000 in grants and $39,000

    in fundraising, far larger figures than the

    non-profit has ever achieved.

    Godarz Eghtedari of Laurelhurst was

    one of the doubters. “I don’t know your

    history of raising money or getting grants,

    but it doesn’t seem to make sense to go so

    far into the hole.” He suggested adopting a

    six-month budget that could be reviewed

    and adjusted if necessary.

    Others said such a move would show a

    lack of confidence that would be self-de-

    feating. Kim Hill of the Belmont Area

    Business Association said, “How long can

    we have a viable organization when the

    phone system completely shuts down?”

    Another board member, Scott Yelton,

    said, “We need to set the bar high. You

    don’t leave computers out of your budget

    and say you’ll buy them if you have the


    Cece Noel, the non-profit’s new exec-

    utive director, added, “It looks like a lot

    because we’re starting from zero, but it’s

    really not so much given how long we’ve

    been around, how well connected we are,

    the role we play in the community. We

    just need to give ourselves permission to

    TIONS. Several community groups in

    Star Land held their annual elections last

    month, resulting in votes of confidence

    and a few new leaders.

    Susan Lindsay, John Rusoff, G.T.

    Meili and Gary Naylor were re-elected

    as the heads of the Buckman, Center,

    Kerns and Laurelhurst associations, re-

    spectively. Stephen Doubleday replaced

    Scott Plager as chair of the Irvington

    Community Association, and Michelle

    Martin took over for Wade Lange as head

    of the Lloyd District Community Asso-

    ciation. In both these last cases, the in-

    cumbents stepped down after two years on

    the job. Hearty congratulations to all.

    *JOAN OF ARC. In the case of the

    Laurelhurst Neighborhood Association,

    they had reason to celebrate. Specially

    decorated cakes paid tribute to Joan of

    Arc, whose statue in Coe Circle was re-

    stored this spring after being vandalized

    last winter. �
