Special visit from...

Northwood Christian Church came to visit yesterday afternoon with their young child choir. Everyone enjoyed them so much and they were just too adorable everyone wanted to pinch their cheeks.



Welcome to the "Clothing Swap"

We started are very own 2nd hand store here. Once a year all the residents gather clothes that no longer fit or they know they just need to make more room in the closet. We always take men's and women's clothes, shoes and purses.
How this works is you bring your item(s) that you would like to donate to the swap. In exchange you get to go shopping through the other clothes donated, as we like to call a "Clothing Swap" 

With the left over clothes we donate them to the Arc of Lane County which works with companies like Value Village, a second hand store that helps the low income families find clothing and other items they are in need of. The Arc of Lane county also helps employ people with disabilities. So everyone helps do a part in helping someone else out.
