Subject: URGENT: Demolition of Portland landmark on Friday 9/11.
The historic Portland Gas & Coke building known as GASCO at 7900 NW St. Helens is slated for demolition this week.

FRIENDS OF GASCO has been raising funds for over a year to stave off the demolition.
NW NATURAL which owns the building has decided to tear down the building despite a robust community outreach campaign.
Chuck Palahniuk in his guidebook to Portland “Fugitives and Refugees: A Walk in Portland, Oregon” calls the GASCO building the 2nd most photographed landmark in Portland.
FRIENDS OF GASCO is staging a rally this Friday 9.11 from 6:30-9:30 
at the historic Skyline Tavern 8031 NW Skyline Blvd, Portland, OR 97229
There is a website for FRIENDS OF GASCO with more information about our campaign
and a short video about the importance and history of the GASCO building.
I am the chair of FRIENDS OF GASCO and the owner of the SKYLINE TAVERN.
