    I like the idea of an over 50 swap, but why does this swap have a drop offat one time then a swap 2 hours later. Why are we wasting gas making 2 driving trips to this location? And in my case, I am working during the day, like most women in their 50’sand over these days so I wouldn’t be able to attend anyway.Why is this in the middle of a week day? Thanks for what you do, but I don’t understand the reasoning behind this. Sharon B.


    • Please call or email the swap coordinator to ask her these questions. This is her first swap, so she’s learning what would work best in her community. Your feedback will be invaluable to her – and maybe you can ask her if you can bring it by when you arrive and just set your stuff out yourself? I’m not sure why she’s wanting people to bring stuff in advance…but my gut feeling is maybe she wants time to hang up the items or put them by category on tables so that women don’t have to stoop over to reach things? This swap may be a lot more organized than the typical swap where we just throw things on the floor in rows or in piles. As for the selection of day and time, it may be that was the only time available for the venue. Please contact her and ask – I’m sure she’d appreciate it! paula.stewart@hillsboro-oregon.gov, or call 503.615.1090.
