Research requested for Germans from Russia in Portland in the early years. Where did they live? What were their customs? Where did they go to school, work, or church? We have received this request from an individual out of the area. If you would like to participate, it would be great information to put in the newsletter as well. Please contact our Meeting Summary editor.


The Sunshine Committee brings "Sunshine" to those among the GROW membership who need cheering-up, encouragement, prayer, and kind words. The cards, letters, and phone calls to those who are ill or in need of comfort are greatly appreciated by those who receive them. We are so thankful to our members who have taken on this mission to be compassionate and have gone out of their way to help others.

If you know of someone who could use a little Sunshine in their life, please contact:
