2020 Event Canceled

Due to COVID-19 and the orders put in place by the Governor of Oregon, we have to cancel this year's event. We are concerned for the well being of our volunteers, demonstrators, and participants. We were not able to find a suitable date later in the year so we decided to cancel rather than postpone. We plan to resume our event next year. Our tentative date is April 10. We hope you will join us at that time. Since this is the only fundraiser for the food bank, if you are willing and able to make a donation you can by clicking the Donate button below or by sending a check directly to our treasurer. Even just the admission fee of $10 will help a great deal!

Please make checks payable to:
LSOH or Let's Stamp Out Hunger

Send donation checks to:
