What's Happening in APRIL 2020 - Please see CALENDAR

I’m excited to announce that Donni Higgins and I will be running the Country Store. Thank you Donni! Our other volunteers are Linda Adams, Martine Metzenheim, and Kathie Orton. We will have a great time filling the store with wonderful items.

But in the meantime, I thought we would feature some items that we have in the store right now. This month’s feature are the Pine Needle Baskets. These authentic Native American Baskets are made in the Kern River Valley by Rose Brock. Each piece of artwork is a one-of-a-kind original made from local pine needles that have been gathered from the forest floor and preserved. These baskets will never be duplicated. I received one from Erie last year and just love it.

If you would like to purchase a basket, I will give you a personal shopping trip to the Country Store. Just call 503-298-9395 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
