Harvest Dinner Pictures and a Big Thanks

Fri, 11/15/2013 - 11:19 -- laura.isela.haz...

What a wonderful Harvest Dinner-- we can't tell you how happy we are you all came! With 43 folks coming from all over Portland, we pressed apples into cider, listened to community members share their stories and hopes, enjoyed a delicious dinner (cooked up by Jen and Jonna, our kitchen superstars), gave away fantastic prizes, and ended the night singing along with the lively ukeleles and ladies of HBO Jacuzzi. Here are some pictures to relive it with us!

A big heartfelt thanks to everyone for coming!!!'s picture
