Mark your calendars for the ninth annual Sabin School Auction on April 5 at the Oregon Convention Center. This year’s theme is “The ’80s,” and organizers are hoping Sabin neighbors will lend their support by:
Sponsoring the event - Local businesses interested in supporting the auction with a sponsorship, ranging from $300 to $2,500, may contact Carla Spencer at email@example.com.
Donating a vacation rental - The live auction needs large-ticket items such as a weekend or week’s stay at a vacation home. For details, e-mail Brooke Unwin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donating to the silent auction - Organizers welcome donations of goods and services such as restaurant certificates, massages, store gift certificates or gym memberships. For more information, e-mail Deborah Pleva, email@example.com.
Buying tickets - Ticket holders are encouraged to wear ’80s-era clothing such as neon leggings, shoulder pads, or parachute pants. Purchase tickets at sabinauction.com.
Auction organizers hope to reach their fundraising goal of $200,000. Funds will be used to support Sabin
students and their teachers with staffing, classroom supplies, technology and experiences that teach the importance of being a respectful and responsible member of a community.

This year, instead of holding our fall General Meeting at Sabin School, we decided to organize a family-friendly community potluck at Clay and Endre's home. Many newcomers joined long-time residents on November 11 to share a delicious meal and get to know each other. Some of the memorable dishes included Josh's roast chicken over Brussels sprouts and Clay's African-style lentil stew. The potluck was such a success that we're thinking about making it an annual event, possibly hosted at a different home each year. If you missed it this year, we hope you can make it next year!
