Please join us at our meeting this Thursday to hear our guest speaker Angie Hungerford talk about her non-profit “So They Can Thrive”. In October 2017 she traveled to Bangladesh to volunteer as a disaster relief medic at a refugee camp for the Rohingya. This is her debrief. We meet noon-1:30 every Thursday in the Rose Room of the Moda Center. See you there! @sotheycanthrive #sotheycanthrive#betheinspiration#eastportlandrotary
USS PLAINVIEW (AGEH-1)
Build start: May 8, 1964
Launched: June 28, 1965
Commisioned: March 3, 1969
Decommissioned: September 22, 1978
Uss Plainview was ahead of its time in the late 60's. Hydrofoil ships allow the vessels to "Fly" over the water with three enormous propellers, one in the back and two in the front, that fold down from the ship into the water. Slowly the vessel gains momentum picking the vessel up out of the water. This is when the vessel "Fly's" over the waters!
Sadly, this once wonderful ship sits just outside of Astoria, Oregon.

Since 1979, I have called Oregon (and SW Washington) Home. I am always taken back by the enthusiasm of out of towners loving our state, because I honestly take it for grated...Is it OK if I'm being this honest here? .
But think of it...we have the Gorgeous Oregon Coast only a couple hours away, the wine country practically down the roads from me, and the Gorge-ous Gorge, a 45-minute drive. When you see our beautiful, powerful, majestic mountain and all her glory, you can see why so many love to come get married in our great state! .
Right now I'm heading out to make another couples party full of fun and laughter. .
We are booking in 2019 already and know next year's summer wedding season will be even hotter!! 🔥 After all, we are just about complete with our summer wedding dates and people are finding us 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

The Columbia Gorge shines beautifully all year long. But when autumn finds its way down the scenic highway, the artistic spirit of The Gateway to the Gorge awakens in full color! Watch and share the latest in our Meet the Neighbors series. Link to full video in our bio. Get to know this charming community through local poetic painter, Robert MacGinnis, this year's featured artist at The Fall Festival of the Arts (THIS WEEKEND). And then head on out to Troutdale, where you can hike, play, shop, and raise a glass to good friends, and great neighbors. #meettheneighbors
