LOACC events and activities


by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - LOACC employee Rose Ann Freeman died Jan. 18. For 14 years, her beautiful smile greeted all who came to the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center. On Jan. 18, Rose Ann Freeman passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, at home. She will be missed.

Freeman was excellent at her job as the community center receptionist/registrar, but more importantly, she was wonderful with people.

She was truly the heart of the adult community center.
