McKee's Holiday Gratitude Gathering/Open House

The THS Band Program volunteers are the reason we can do all the terrific things we do, and I am very grateful for all of you, present and past. If you are or have been an adult THS Band volunteer, I hope you can drop by this Friday evening between 6 and 9pm and enjoy some seasonal munchies - we might even break out the panini machine again! 

Sorry - no current/former students.

Christmas Eve Handbells!

Looking for a nice way to spend 45 minutes on Christmas Eve? Join us at Newberg Friends (just 20 minutes from Tigard!) for a wonderful candlelight service full of music, including handbells. Never heard handbells? Then you should definitely come! Musicians include Liz, Eryn,  Phil (yes, Phil!), and me - whoopee! We're very casual and friend-ly, so come on by this evening at 5, 6:30, or 8 pm.

West on Hwy 99, on to the one-way in Newberg. Left on College Street. Newberg Friends is on the corner of College and 3rd.
