More ways to Celebrate Hillsboro: Upcoming events July 20-Aug. 3, 2016

July 20

Food Talk — Oregon is famous for its food — for its long traditions in agriculture and fisheries, and its role in the movement to promote whole foods in communities, schools and home kitchens. In addition to the daily practice of cooking and eating, many Oregonians also think, talk and write about food. This program, facilitated by Wendy Willis, poet, essayist, and executive director of the Policy Consensus Initiative at Portland State University, will offer participants a chance to reflect on how our relationship to food production, preparation and consumption might help create self-sufficiency and empowered citizenship. Hillsboro Main Library. 6 p.m.

Preservation Workshop — The Washington County Museum is hosting a preservation workshop 10 to 11:30 a.m. $10 for adults. $5 for members. The workshop will cover problems that arise from poor storage and handling of old photos. More effective and alternative solutions will be provided. The workshop will include a behind-the-scenes museum tour.

Through July 24

Get an Education — Rose Hawthorne, Layla Bainer, and Megan Horne - the women of “Continuing Education,” HART Theatre’s Page to Stage selection, are always learning.

Showtimes are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. 185 S.E. Washington St. Tickets $11 +.
