Next Meeting

Dr. John Schilke will host the next meeting of the Portland Flag Association (Covid-19 permitting) at 7 PM, Thursday, 14 May 2020 in the Sandpiper Room at Mary’s Woods retirement community, 17400 Holy Names Drive, Lake Oswego.  Parking is limited, so please consider carpooling.  (See below for detailed directions, as online map apps will only get you in the general vicinity based on the street address alone.)

We look forward to seeing those of you who have missed recent meetings, and hear some new stories, see some different flags, and engage in provocative flag-related discussion. Newcomers welcome!

If you can’t get to the meeting,  perhaps you can give the editor something to share with readers.


  • Take Oregon Route 43 (Pacific Highway) towards Marylhurst University. One mile south of downtown Lake Oswego, take Holy Names Drive into Mary’s Woods.
  • Go straight at the stop sign and enter the DUROCHER parking lot (next left). You will see the number (17440) on the entrance area of the apartment building. (Note that online apps may send you to the wrong place given this street address, alas.)
  • Find an empty space in the parking area with a BLUE FLAG, and park. (This will assure that you will be using a free space.)
  • If you need to get in and John isn’t at the door, call his cell phone at five-zero-three 459-1213.

The custom Google Map below shows the location of the parking lot (green P) and the entrance to the building (blue star).
