Relay for Life

Representatives from Relay for Life are going to come and talk about all of the good work they are doing for Cancer Research,

History of Relay for Life:

One person can make a difference. In May 1985, Dr. Gordon “Gordy” Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, raising money to help the American Cancer Society with the nation’s biggest health concern: cancer.

Gordy spent a grueling 24 hours circling the track at the University of Puget Sound. Friends, family, and patients watched and supported him as he walked and ran more than 83.6 miles and raised $27,000 through pledges to help save lives from cancer. As he circled the track, he thought of how he could get others to take part. He envisioned having teams participate in a 24-hour fundraising event. The next year, 19 teams were part of the first Relay For Life event at the historical Stadium Bowl and raised $33,000.

After previously battling stomach cancer, Gordy passed away from heart failure on August 3, 2014 at the age of 71. But his legacy lives on. He shaped an idea that started as one man walking and running a track and helped turn it into a global fundraising phenomenon.

Unidos Bridging Community and Measure 105

UNIDOS is a diverse and welcoming nonprofit. They advocate for Latino immigrant families and build bridges of support and understanding. They are going to come and talk to us about measure 105 and why they are trying to convince people in our community to vote no.

From Unidos:

“We need every voter in the community to show up for our immigrant neighbors in this midterm election. Measure 105 will be on the ballot attempting to repeal Oregon's 31 year-old law (ORS 181a.820) that keeps state and local law enforcement from using “… moneys, equipment or personnel for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.”

Evening Meeting at Evasion Brewing - 5:30

Evening meeting at Evasion Brewing. Evasion is one of the newest breweries in McMinnville and they have a really cool back story.

If it doesn't taste good, nothing else matters.

Our family has been a long line of machinists for 5 generations now, since before the Lapp family emigrated from Germany to start a new life in The US.

With that heritage, Evasion Brewing was born with an understanding of precision and a desire for quality. Flavor is always our number one goal when crafting beers, and the fact they are all completely gluten free, brewed in a dedicated GF facility, is the arm-behind-the-back challenge we are proud to embrace and excited to explore.

Young Life

 In Young Life, we believe in the power of presence. Kids’  lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose

This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will impact future decisions … careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised. All ripples from the time when a Young Life leader reached out and entered their world.

Yamhill County Fair - Leslie Lewis

Did you know we have the oldest fair in Oregon?!?!?

The first fair in Yamhill County was October 7, 1854, and was held in Lafayette, Oregon. It was sponsored by the Yamhill County Agricultural Society, which formed in 1853. That first fair included bed quilts, butter, cheese, vegetables, cattle, sheep, hogs, farm implements, horses, mules and so much more.
 

Over the years there were many changes to the county fair location and facilities. The current site was acquired by parcels over several years and buildings were added. Our current location, just off of Highway 99W on Lafayette Avenue, is on 30 acres with housing for exhibits and animals as well as a show arena open year-round for shows and youth events
