  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.
