Recent Happenings:

Rotarians at work preparing our 9th Annual Holiday Food Drive

Every year just before the Christmas Holiday, schools have an extended break.

Because many parents cannot afford time off to stay home with these children, the children are often home alone to fend for themselves.

Special thanks to the scores of club members and their spouses 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!

Thank you to all of you!

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.
