About 65-75 people attended. Thanks to Ty Kuhns and his team (see Team below) the Country Club was beautifully decorated and everyone who attended had a wonderful time of socializing with their neighbors.
During our Holiday Gathering we again gave the opportunity for our residents to give to The Community Transitional School of Portland. This year we raised $436.00. The Transitional School is on a 2.35 acre plot in NE Portland and in their25th year. There is a school with four large classrooms, a cafeteria, and a spacious office with adjoining workrooms; a large playground, track and basketball court; and a garden to serve the students at the school. Most important is the parking lot with the four buses that will pick up the children, from wherever they are, and transport them to school. Since most of the children may be in shelters or motels, the buses may be the only way for these children to have a school life and may possibly be the only meals they receive each day. If you were unable to make it to the Gathering and would still like to contribute there are several ways to do so, please visit their webpage at: http://www.transitionalschool.org/help/help.html
