A group of Lake Oswego and Portland-area buddies share laughter and fun at Down Syndrome Network Oregon Day at Oaks Amusement Park in Portland last month. They are, top row from left, Megan Schiedler holding Ellie Miller, Sean Kuga and Brandon Swanson; bottom row from left, Iris Tervo, Sam Rizk and Emma Harris. The special day was made possible through donations from the annual Buddy Walk held in Lake Oswego. This year's Buddy Walk is set for Sept. 30 at 10:30 a.m. starting in Millennium Plaza Park. Anyone can attend and walk to raise awareness about Downs syndrome. For more information, visit www.dsnor.org or call 503-635-4153.
