LOACC to hold special lunch, brick party Friday

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Donors to the Brick by Brick program are invited to an unveiling party of the new terrace after the Valentine lunch Friday. The celebration begins at 2 p.m.

The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center’s Brick by Brick project, which began last summer, will be unveiled to donors at a special party to be held at 2 p.m. Friday.

The spring fundraising project sold more than 100 bricks for the center and provided a lovely accessible outdoor terrace on the north side of the building.

Eagle Scout candidate Quintin Jones from Boy Scout Troop 432 designed the terrace and installed the bricks as part of his Eagle project. Light refreshments will be served immediately after the unveiling in the Oak room overlooking the terrace. Let us know if you would like to attend by calling 503-635-3758.

Also, call to register for classes, events and make lunch reservations. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.
