On Saturday October 9th, a big yellow school bus will drive us around  
to Low Brow Lounge, Produce Row, Landmark Saloon and Radio Room. Local  
trivia master, Shan Rock, will lead us in rounds of trivia as we eat,  
drink and make merry.  It's only $30 to participate, the money goes to  
a great cause and it's a really fun time!

First Book is a great organization that grants book-buying money to  
local Portland organizations such as Early Head Start and West Women's  
Shelter.  The purpose of the grants is to purchase books for  
low-income children.  The kids actually get to own the books and take  
them home which is often a rarity for them.  There's a huge demand for  
the grants so we're doing our best to raise money for next year's  
grant cycle.  More information can be found at
