Sleep Train's School Supply Drive for Foster Kids

Sleep Train (formerly named Sleep Country USA), is striving to ease foster kids’ first-day of school jitters with its School Supply Drive, on now through September 6th. For the Northwest’s nearly 20,000 foster children, going back to school often means starting at a new school with unfamiliar teachers and peers. Having essential classroom tools helps foster kids feel confident and prepared for a successful school year. To lend a helping hand, drop off donations of new school supplies — including backpacks, binders, notebooks, pens and pencils— at any Sleep Train location. For more information or to find the nearest store, please visit www.sleeptrain.com.

Effective Communication Strategies for Alzheimer's

Communication is more than just talking and listening — it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language.

Portland Revels Autumn Equinox Pub Sing

Revels seasonal pub sings are for anyone who loves to sing. They evolved out of the impromptu gatherings of cast members who wanted to keep singing after rehearsals or performances. Now they’ve grown to include any and all that love to sing, recite poems or just sit around with a pint and a burger and enjoy the company of friends. The Autumn Equinox is when we start to feel the seasons change. To observe the challenges brought by the colder months to come, the Portland Revels will be collecting food for a local food bank at this Pub Sing. We are excited to be partnering with Lift Urban Portland, whose mission is to reduce hunger and improve the lives of low-income residents of Northwest and Downtown Portland. Tickets are $10 per person. Bring two cans of food to benefit Lift Urban Portland and get in for $5, or bring in three cans and get in for free. Half of all proceeds from this pub sing will go to Lift Urban Portland’s fund to purchase much needed food for the hungry and homeless.

St Josef's Winery Grapestomping Festival- the 33rd annual!

On Saturday, September 26th and Sunday, September 27th, St Josef’s Winery will be celebrating its 33rd Annual Grapestomping Festival. This is the Northwest’s Original Wine Harvest Event. Before there were micro brews and Starbucks in Oregon, there was the St Josef’s Grapestomping Festival! St Josef’s originated their iconic harvest festival back in 1983 when there were less than 30 wineries in Oregon. Proprietors, Josef & Lilli who emigrated from Germany, wanted to pass on a little bit of the harvest spirit to the burgeoning Oregon wine industry. Since running a vineyard and winery is a lot hard work, they believed it was important to start the busy “crush” season off with a lighthearted approach. With lively music, local foods and of course, stomping grapes in a barrel. It has grown to stomping in a 1200 gallon Oak barrel that holds the equivalent 3,000 bottles of wine, music imported from Bavaria and house made foods in a casual, relaxed European atmosphere. In addition to Grapestomping contests held throughout the day, the ‘Original Donaumusikanten’ a great six-piece German Band from Ulm, Bavaria will be performing from 1pm to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Over 400 lbs of special St Josef’s German sausages & homemade sauerkraut will be served, along with other locally made foods. New vintages and special reserve wines will be available by the glass plus tours with the winemaker and tastings will occur throughout the day.

Open Alpaca Barn

Want to shop Black Friday and Super Saturday, but keep it small and local? Join us for our Open Barn, co-hosted by EasyGo Farm at Alpacas of Oregon in Sherwood, just off Hwy 99. In the midst of Washington County's wine country, the farm is conveniently located to provide a break from the Thanksgiving winery tours. Get your hands on our luxurious alpaca products: fleece and roving for handspinners, yarn for knitters, sweaters, scarves, socks, & more, many handcrafted. This is a unique way to entertain your out of town company, as well as do some holiday shopping. Hand feed the alpacas and get nose to nose with less expensive "fiber boys" - alpacas for fiber artists, 4-H, companions, or pasture ornaments & lawn mowers. Visitors can chat with four long-time livestock breeders who've raised llamas, horses, sheep, and goats. They've found that alpacas are a perfect match for owners of small acreages or for crafters looking for their own four-legged fiber producers. Both farms offer alpacas for sale along with boarding options. We'll be open Friday and Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.
