August 2020

Happy summer readers! We have made it to August! The big news from the West Coast was the comet Neowise that was spotted throughout the month of July. If you were one of the lucky ones to spot the bright comet, did you get any photos? I’ve seen some amazing images taken and that has been a nice distraction from all that is COVID. 

July kind of flew by between celebrations on the Fourth, camping trips and family activities. We spent the month planning for the rest of summer (the best we can given the circumstances) and into the fall. We are hopeful some fall events will be in person, in small groups but we will know more soon and will keep you all posted the best we can. For now, there’s plenty to look forward to in August, like the After Hours that will take place on August 11. 

Alumni & Friends After Hours (Virtual)

One event that took place in July was the monthly After Hours event, which are now virtual so people from all over the world can join!  July’s topic of conversation was favorite summer activities. Attendees shared their favorite summertime hobbies and activities in a lively conversation via Zoom. Alums from all over Oregon and other states joined the conversation from the comfort of their own homes! It was so fun to connect with our alumni from their homes, we look forward to many more virtual After Hours.
