SOMMERSONNENWENDE Summer Membership Meeting

Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.

Old Aurora Colony Museum Courtyard

Call the museum at 503.678.5754

Sommersonnenwende is German for summer solstice, and we’ll gather on the longest day of the year for fellowship and a celebration of Aurora’s heritage. There will be “winebibbing” with German-style wines from Christopher Bridge Winery in Canby, plus beer, beverages, and tasty nibbles in the courtyard. Executive Director Patrick Harris will give a history talk and an update on our soon-to-be-built Preservation & Research Center, and there may even be a short walking tour of Aurora for those who wish to venture out.

Occasion at the Octagon

ACHS celebrates yet another successful fundraising dinner, the Occasion at the Octagon, held Saturday, August 25. Around 100 supporters gathered at the Aurora Colony Hotel’s last surviving structure to hear music by Chip Cohen, eat delicious charcoal-grilled salmon, taste delicious wine, and support ACHS via raffles, a live auction, and paddle raise. We will update this page soon with our fundraising total.

Without delay, we would like to thank the local businesses and individuals who donated items for our auction. We could not have held such a successful event without the generous support of these wonderful friends of ACHS. We thank you so much!
