Due to the the Martin Luther King Holiday, the Forest Grove Senior and Community Center will be closed. Writers in the Grove will be meeting at the home of Paula and Parks Adams in Forest Grove. Please contact us if you need the address.
Also, volunteers are needed to help with the upcoming 2018 Authors Conference on January 27, 2018. We need a kitchen czar to manage the kitchen, food, and setup during the event. We need a couple people to help collect the food from the donors as well, so transportation is important. Volunteers will likely miss some or all of the event, so we are also looking for friends and family to pitch in to help make this a success. I’ve volunteered my husband. Got another family member to spare? 😀
It’s Memorial Day Weekend and the Forest Grove Senior and Community Center will be closed. We will be heading to the farm on Monday!
Susan Schmidlin has invited us out to Schmidlin Farm, a black Angus ranch near Vernonia. Bring pens and paper, laptops, whatever, and join us for this fun morning, and possibly the day.
There will be carpool available at the Center, leaving by 8:20AM on Monday. The rest of us will meet at Schmidlin Farm by 9AM.
Please bring a potluck meal to share with everyone as we will have lunch following the morning workshop. Please label the food as to vegetarian, meat, dairy, or gluten.
The Schmidlin’s have invited us to tour the ranch and get some close up time with the cattle. Those willing to pull weeds, bring appropriate attire and kneeling pads and join us in her huge garden. She brings in fruits and vegetables all summer long to our writing group, and this is one of the ways we can pay back.
See you, Monday, at the farm!
