Special thanks to the scores of club members who donated food, assembled the baskets and then delivered them to 60 families of Ron Russell Middle School and Serendipity School.

It was a team effort, and a wonderful success!

Club joins efforts to end human trafficking

As part of the efforts to end human trafficking, our club along with the other East Portland clubs walked from the Art Museum to Pioneer Courthouse Square, City Fair and back to the Art Museum. Marchers wore orange T-shirts carrying the End Human Trafficking message.  Observers were provided resource information if they wanted to learn more or volunteer in efforts related to Human Trafficking. Next year there is serious talk about joining in the Starlight Parade or be a District 5100 entry in the Rose Parade. About 50 walkers showed up having only short notice to participate. The next walk should be much lager.
                      Stay tuned.
