CHAMPOEG HOSTS APPLE FESTIVAL ON OCT. 14
Grinding, pressing and sampling apple cider is what's on tap at Champoeg State Heritage Area on Oct. 14. Friends of Historic Champoeg continues its living history program with Apple Harvest Festival from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Children of all ages are invited to make a "wrinkled" apple doll, string apples to dry at home, and try their hand at turning the hand-cranked cider mill. Under a shady oak tree visitors can press and sample apple cider made from apple varieties found in Champoeg's heritage apple orchard. At the fire ring, (weather permitting), costumed volunteers will stir bubbling apple butter and bake apple desserts in Dutch ovens in the open coals. For more information contact Kim Martin at
503-678-1649 or kim at champoeg.org.
ADVANCED GRANT WRITING WORKSHOP IN PORTLAND
Ever wish you could be there to hear what funders really think about your proposals? Heres your chance. This workshop is designed specifically for experienced grant writers. If youve had at least three grant proposals funded, and are ready to learn what program officers expect of experienced grant writing professionals, this is a great opportunity to build your skills. In small roundtable discussions, you will be able to work with a staff person from a major funder to improve your work and understand what they look for in written proposals.
The foundation panel will include representatives of the Oregon Community Foundation; Collins Foundation; Northwest Health Foundation; Hoover Family Foundation; M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust; Spirit Mountain Community Fund; and Meyer Memorial Trust.
In addition, workshops will be offered on grant maker expectations of experienced grant writers; seeing your proposal through funders eyes: small group discussions with program officers; sharpening your writing and presentation skills; foundation trustee perspectives on grants decisions; how to build relationships with funders; and evaluation and logic models
Pre-registration is required. The workshop will take place Oct. 19 and is sponsored by Technical Assistance for Community Services. Additional information is available at http://www.tacs.org/training/event.asp?evID=401
