Elks Lodge Open House

by Matt Cory

The Elks Lodge in Milwaukie is having an Open House Event tomorrow for the general purpose of increasing their membership.  Additionally, and perhaps more to the point for OPS purposes, the Lodge is also a strong prospect as our new meeting venue!

With free food, fun, and entertainment planned for the whole family, come on down and take a look at what could turn out to be our new digs and spend a lazy Sunday afternoon at the Lodge (at 13121 SE McLoughlin Blvd, Milwaukie Oregon).

Piping/Drumming Workshop & OPS Meeting

by Matt Cory

Saturday, February 16th is the date of our annual Piping & Drumming Workshop event!  RenĂ© Cusson will be our piping instructor, and Rob McKendrick will be our drumming instructor.

Classes begin at 8:30 AM, and there's plenty of room for all who are interested.  Come down to the VFW Hall at 825 Southeast Mill Street in Portland, and join us for a day of fun and excellent instruction from some amazing teachers!

Later on that night (our evening's entertainment begins at 7:30 pm), John Moritz will be our local hero, RenĂ© and Rob will be our featured performers, and to round off the evening's fun, our featured band will be the very popular local Celtic group, New Shilling!

See you all there!
