When does a war end? Does it ever? Many returning soldiers bring wars back with them, reaching beyond the battlefield, in­filtrating the very thing that defines comfort and safety: home.
Join us in a conversation with freelance photographer and writer Jim Lommasson, who has collected oral histories from returning soldiers and documented their struggles at home.
Special guest: Award-winning poet Frances Richey will lead a reading of "Voices of the Guard," a homecoming poem created in support of CCC's Military Families Scholarship Endowment and in honor of the Oregon National Guard.

Endowment Spotlight: Bob Rapp Memorial
CCC Softball Coach Paul Fiskum called Bob Rapp Mr. Softball, and few could quibble. Bob coached softball in Clackamas County at all levels beginning in 1968, including ASA, Canby High School, men's fastpitch and CCC.

Clearly, Bob loved the game of softball, but considered himself a teacher of life. He said, "Coaching is not a vocation for me, it's an avocation. The rewards don't come on the first and 15th of the month, they come from watching the kids move on, whether it's to a four-year college or going on to raise a family."

Bob's gift to his community went well beyond softball, as he served as Canby mayor and city councilor, and was a member of the Clackamas County Fair Board, Clackamas County Historical Society and Clackamas County Associated Chambers of Commerce. He also led citizen groups that twice helped CCC pass tax measures.

The Bob Rapp Memorial Endowment funds work-study jobs and scholarships each year for deserving CCC softball players.
