The Oregon Vagabond November 2011, Volume 2 – Issue 11

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Wow! The past three months has flown by with so much going on and a number of changes with staff and newspaper content. We’re playing catch up during the month of November on the website and Facebook. Thanks for your patience waiting for my “Friend Request” acceptance. It’s fantastic how many people are discovering The Oregon Vagabond street newspaper! Your support is very much needed and appreciated! Be sure to LIKE our Oregon Vagabond page on Facebook and check out our Contributors Club too!

James, our U of O intern, has returned to focusing on his studies. Lee, our advertising rep and community outreach coordinator, relocated with her husband out of state. This past October, I attended the North American Street Newspaper Association convention at the First Amendment Center, Nashville, TN. Very exciting. I will be sharing more about that in the weeks ahead.

Welcome and thank you to our newest advertisers, the Oregon Humanities Center and the Eagan Warming Center (administered by St. Vincent de Paul)!

One area The Oregon Vagabond is distributed by our homeless vendors on Saturday is on the streets by the Farmers Market and Saturday Market in downtown Eugene.
