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.
