Foundation offers Scotland trip

Drawing Aug. 9 will grant one person a visit to kilt-land


The newly formed Boring Oregon Foundation is beginning its fund-raising with a drawing for a trip in October for one person on a group tour of Scotland, which includes a visit to Dull — a small community officially paired with Boring.

The trip, which includes visits to other desirable sites around the countryside, has been organized by a Boring travel agent.

The trip includes all lodging, economy airfare from Portland and ground transportation in Scotland; taxes are not included.

The travel agent is gathering a group from the Boring area to visit the Scottish community they have joined as “a pair for the ages.”

The people of Scotland, and particularly the residents of Dull, are welcoming the visit.

The people of Dull already have warmly welcomed some Oregonians, who were traveling on their own.

Residents who are 21 years or older may join this drawing, and only 500 tickets will be sold at $20 each, making the odds of winning at 1-500 for a single ticket purchase.

The drawing will be held in conjunction with the Boring and Dull Day celebration Aug. 9 in the Boring Station Trailhead Park.

If the winner chooses by Aug. 15, he or she may decline the trip and receive instead $1,500 in cash.

Currently, tickets are for sale at The Not so Boring Bar & Grill, the Boring and Sandy branches of Clackamas County Bank and Geren’s Farm Supply.

The Boring Oregon Foundation is under application with the Internal Revenue Service for 501(c)3 nonprofit status.

The foundation also is an Oregon nonprofit corporation and has been established as the charitable fund for the development and operation of a multi-generational community center for the greater Boring area.
