Accepting Vendors for Fall Bazaar and Craft Show

The Adult Enrichment Center will host its 6th annual Fall Bazaar and Craft Show Nov. 13th. This year’s bazaar is shaping up to be something special. We hope you and your friends can attend. As in years past, we will offer a program full of great food, a wonderful atmosphere, arts vendors of every style as well as food. There is no admission to attend. This is a great place to get some early Christmas shopping done.

Although a lot of work has been done, there are still plenty of ways that you can support this event and in so doing, make a positive impact on the center.

How you can help

  • Tell all of your friends and neighbors to support their local senior center by attending this fun event
  • If you have small items that can be given away as door prizes or raffle basket accents, bring them in. Nothing too large please. Porcelain or ceramic statues are perfect. If you are not sure if your donation would be appropriate, please give us a call.
  • Sign up to volunteer at the event. We always are in need of greeters and table hosts. If you are willing to help, there is a good chance that we can find an enjoyable task for you.If you have a friend that is an accomplished hobbyist/artist, encourage them to register for a table. Spaces are limited but still available.

Scooters now allowed at Chehalem Skatepark

Sure, Shawn White enjoys skating at our world-class skatepark at Ewing Young Historical Park, but you don't have to be a world-class skater to enjoy it - or even a skater at all. Scooters are now permitted. A reminder that helmets are mandatory, and bikes are not allowed.

See you around on your scooter!
