OAMC photos from last week


A lot has been happening in the last several days. Here are some photos from last week.

W traveled to Salem on Wednesday, June 17, to a packed house. On Thursday we travel to Auburn, stopping at the Johnson Ridge Observatory at Mt. St. Helens. That evening we had a wonderful concert with a number of community and student musicians. It's been a delight to have some terrific youthful musicians playing for use.

On Friday we traveled from Auburn to Walla Walla, stopping by the Native American Tamastslikt Cultural Institute in Pendleton, Ore. Then to Walla Walla area for a Friday evening of relaxation, recreation, dinner and a shared communion service.

More photos to come as we're able to load them up. Of course, you'll find a few photos as we go on our Facebook page.
