Playground Fundraiser

GREAT NEWS! The new playground is slated to be installed this spring and the fundraiser for the commemorative wall is beginning to come to life. During last year’s annual dinner and auction, the community raised $47,500 toward the new playground. We are continuing the fundraising for the new commemorative wall that is located under cover near the playground. During the “All School Reunion & BBQ” in September, many of you indicated that you wanted to purchase a plaque and the sales have now begun. Jeanne Windsor, our executive director, will be contacting those of you that signed pledge cards or sent emails indicating your interest in purchasing plaques or you can call Jeanne at 503-741-0290 for more information.

Currently, there are two sizes of plaques available, 6.4” x 4.4” are  $250 and 8” x 10” are $500

You will be able to customize your plaques with up to 5 lines of text and receive a proof before production. The Foundation agreed to raise funds for the new playground project, and we are looking to the community to join in this special fundraiser. All funds that are received from the sales of plaques will go toward the $31,000 balance. We look forward to working with many of you to honor your friends and loved ones as we build this community commemorative wall together.

Here is a sample of the smaller, 6.4” x 4.4”  plaque:
