Clackamas Community College will commemorate Veterans Day with a special reading of words of war and peace. The Veterans Day reading will take place on Nov. 13 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Literary Arts Center, room 220 in Rook Hall at the Oregon City campus.

Participants are encouraged to share written works in any form that describe a veteran transitioning to civilian life, an event that happened in wartime or a letter to or from a veteran who doesn’t understand a personal experience — either on the front line or on the home front.

The Veterans Day reading will include a social hour and refreshments. Community members are encouraged to attend. For more information, contact Dave Mount at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 503-594-3265.

Online community survey

Clackamas Community College will mark its 50th year of service to the district in 2016. As the college approaches this milestone, the board of education is seeking input from the community to shape the future.

The college will launch the “Imagine Clackamas” online community engagement survey on Nov. 19. The community engagement survey asks community members, as well as students, what they value most about CCC and how the college can best meet training and education needs in the future.

“Imagine Clackamas is designed to strengthen relationships with community members,” said Shelly Parini, dean of College Advancement. “This initiative will shine a light on areas where we should improve and adapt the college’s educational and training services to better meet the needs of the communities we serve for the next 50 years.”

After the conclusion of the survey at the end of February, a series of community focus groups will begin. Feedback collected from the survey and the focus groups will guide the college’s decision-making processes, priorities and activities for the future.

Members of the community can complete the 10-minute online survey at The survey will be accessible Nov. 19 through Feb. 19, 2013. Hard copies of the survey will be available by calling 503-594-3015.
