Support Gresham's band at dessert concert

The Gresham High School small ensemble is hosting a dessert concert from 7-8:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18, in the Gresham High cafeteria, 1200 N. Main Ave.

The performance will feature a variety of popular songs from movies, TV series and the radio, including “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol, The Lion King Medley and Journey's “Don’t Stop Believing.”

The event is free and open to the public. Dessert plates will be available for $1 each. Attendees also will have the opportunity to buy $1 raffle tickets for a gift basket.

All proceeds will benefit the band program. For more information, call Emily Blanshan, band director, at 503-674-5500.

Join the zombie run at Centennial High

Centennial High School’s junior class council will throw a 5K Zombie Run at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 9.

All proceeds will benefit class activities such as prom and a senior all-night party.

“Fitness and zombies are both popular, and we are hoping that this brings people from all around to participate with us,” said Shelbi Wescott, an event organizer.

Participants may register as a runner or zombie, but space for zombies is limited. The course will begin at the Centennial High School track and travel around the campus and outlying neighborhoods.

Zombies will chase runners at five strategic locations during the run. Afterward, all participants are invited to a zombie after-party with food carts and a DJ.

Early registration may be completed at chszombierun.eventbrite.com. The cost is $25 for runners and $20 for zombies, with a T-shirt, certificate, bib number and zombie makeup (for zombies) included.
