Change of venue for White Oak Savanna Concert

The concert for the White Oak Savanna, on Aug. 17 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., has changed venues. The new location is the bandstand in Willamette Park with views of the river flowing behind and plenty of spots to set up a chair. The address is 1100 12th St., and parking is available.

The two Latin guitarists performing, Mariano De Orbegoso and his son, Masud Tahmassbi, can usually only be heard at El Gaucho in the Benson Hotel.

The concert is $20 and tickets can be purchased in advance or on the day of the event. Proceeds go to the acquisition of White Oak Savanna.

Attend Computers for Kids Auction

The ninth annual Computers for Kids Auction is set for Aug. 2 at 2206 Tannler Drive (at the corner of Bland Circle and Tannler Drive).

During the last eight years volunteers have been able to get a total of 32 computer systems out to kids in West Linn-Wilsonville School District who otherwise would not be able to have one in their homes. This is the only fundraiser of the year for the cause.

This year’s auction will start with food being served at 5:30 p.m. and attendees are asked to bring a lawn chair, a good sense of humor and a checkbook.

There will be pizza for dinner and beverages as well. Parking is available on Tannler Drive.

Attendees are encouraged to park there rather than Bland Circle.

WLACC seeks bus driver

The West Linn Adult Community Center is looking for a volunteer bus driver with a current commerical driver’s license to drive its 18-passenger bus that takes members on daytime trips several times a month.

At times it involves just a few hours, while other trips last most of the day. The community center has several drivers that it rotates through, so it is not a significant time commitment.

Anyone interested in this volunteer position should contact the West Linn Adult Community Center at 503-557-4704.

Movies in the Park selected

The city of West Linn offers free movies on Friday evenings throughout the city in July and August. Movies will start at dusk and families are welcomed into the parks to enjoy picnics, popcorn and movies.

This event is professionally planned and managed by the West Linn Parks and Recreation Department.

• Aug. 2, Marylhurst Heights Park, 1800 Valley View Drive:

“The Neverending Story” (PG)

• Aug. 9, Willamette Park, 1100 12th St.: “Thunderstruck” (PG)
