Thea Shop Girl Consignment sings at Music Mondays in Gresham

Thea, Shop Girl Consignment owner, is one busy entrepreneur. A new store opened in Sandy. Singer when requested. And interviewee on national media. Thea was interviewed recently by a national news station. She shared her opposition to the capital gains tax, Measure 26-238. Like many business owners, assisting those in need is important, but this measure is poorly written and a backbreaking burden on family businesses and taxpayers at all levels.

Learn more about Measure 26-238

Pick a gift card and Shop local for Mother's Day. Lots of places to pick from. The Salvation Army Gresham Corps Plant sale, Al’s Garden Center, Gresham Historical Society & Museum Plant sale, Junki’s Riverview Restaurant (make a reservation early), or a gift card for a massage. Lots of members would love to be part of celebrating Mother's Day with you.

Experience Oregon’s Bounty with Diverse Farms

These farmers connect to their roots and build community with produce and programs.

As a vegetable lover and food enthusiast, I jumped at the opportunity to get my rain boots in the mud and visit a few farms with Growing Gardens, a Portland-based nonprofit that helps cultivate access to culturally appropriate and healthy, sustainable food. Volunteer events and the Chef in Your Garden series highlighting local chefs and farms are a couple ways to get involved.
