Fifth-graders can learn about Boy Scouts

Boy Scout Troop 432 is looking for a few good fifth-graders.

They’re invited to two open houses, where they’ll learn about troop activities such as monthly campouts including rafting the Deschutes River, hiking in Silver Falls State Park and riding horses at Butte Creek. The troop also does service projects: recycling trees, working on trails at Iron Mountain and chopping wood for Boy Scout lodges on Mount Hood.

There’s one open house Tuesday and one Jan. 28, both 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Lake Grove Presbyterian Church, 4040 Sunset Drive.

New feature arrives at PCC-Sylvania building

Portland Community College’s Sylvania Campus now has another way to give students a lift.

Construction workers finished the glass elevator at the north end of the Amo DeBernardis College Center, also called the CC building, during the holiday break. Sylvania Campus President Linda Gerber celebrated the building’s second elevator with school employees Jan. 2. Having a second elevator in the building will improve access for people with disabilities. A less steep ramp was added inside of the building. Acoustic upgrades also were a part of the renovation.

The 120,000-square-foot building, in the heart of the 122-acre Southwest Portland campus, houses the cafeteria, two coffee shops, administration offices, student government offices and the counseling/advising, cooperative education (student employment), career services, women’s resource and multicultural centers. The project is funded through a $374 million, 2008 bond project, and $55 million of the bond dollars are being invested at the Sylvania campus. Bond dollars have funded new equipment and technology, buildings and renovations at PCC’s many locations.
