Annual repainting day at Share-It Square: Today is the day this year for the annual repainting of the Sherrett Square intersection in Sellwood. “This year’s design celebrates unity, with four hands holding four different flowers that are significant to the Portland area, surrounding the planet above a field of dark night sky. All of the hands are tied together with the red thread, a recurring theme from years past. And lastly, around the border are pollinating insects, to signify our continuing appreciation for the small creatures that we depend on.” Volunteer painters will get to work at 10 a.m. until the work is done, which is usually between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. All supplies provided, all are welcome!
