Know When to Fold 'Em

Events not to miss!  Trick or treating in Historic Downtown Gresham will be held Wednesday evening from 4 to 6pm.  If you don't have little ghouls or gremlins it is still worthwhile to come downtown for dinner just to see all the great costumes!  Thank you to all the retailers and restaurants who generously hand out candy to the community for this fun event.

No, its not Texas Hold'em it is Fill-A-Bag Fold-em.  Fill-A-Bag, gathered over 300,000 pounds of food for SnowCap last year and the first event in this process in the Bag Folding Party.  And, yes it is a part with happy hands folding the bags and envelops that will be put in the Outlook to reach our goal for this year and meet the need of providing nutrition for the less fortunate in East County.  Yes, that is the great thing about this project the food all stays here in East County.

The Bag Folding Party is open to the public and will be held at the New Gresham Ford located at 1999 East Powell Blvd. on Thursday November 1st from 5pm until the 10,000th bag is folded.  We are all in  - in making this a successful event.  Lots of community partners are helping, the Breakfast Lions Club, the Gresham Rotary, but we need more help.  10,000 bags are many and lots of hands made quick work!  Bags and envelopes will be available for pickup for your church, club or school after November 1st at Riverview Community Bank 225 East Burnside Road (across the street from Gresham High School) or at Gresham Ford or at Drakes 7 Dees on Stark in Gresham.
