It's Thursday, April 25, National Crayola Day. Happy birthday to actor/producer Renee Zellweger (1969), who had us at 'hello.' Today in 1947, President Harry Truman inaugurated the new White House bowling alley. The two-lane alley was used by a White House Bowling League, made up mostly of staff and some officials. It was closed in 1955, but a second alley was opened in the Executive Office Building, where President Nixon enjoyed rolling a few games. It should be partly sunny, with a high around 70. Here are a few things to do after you restock your crayons today:




• Join students, faculty and staff at Mt. Hood Community College to take a stand against sexual and domestic violence at Take Back The Night rally and march, 6 to 8 p.m., at the college track, 26000 S.E. Stark St., Gresham.

• Discuss Japan's low fertility rates at the PSU Center for Japanese Studies' lecture, 6 p.m., Smith Memorial Student Union, room 327/8, 1825 S.W. Broadway. www.pdx.edu/cjs/event/japans-low-fertility-patterns-factors-and-policy-responses?delta=0

• Slam it like a real poet at the 2019 Verselandia! student poetry slam, 7 p.m., Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 S.W. Broadway. Cost: $10 to $70. www.portland5.com/arlene-schnitzer-concert-hall/events/2019-verselandia
