Curious what is happening in the Boring or Damascus area? Recently a group of residents from the area began discussing how to foster more involvement in our area.
Boring and Damascus are communities of people who have a tradition of volunteerism. While these efforts have waxed and waned over time, there are currently many organizations serving these communities. Moreover, we perceive there is room for groups to expand their influence and for new groups to form.
However, these groups are often not aware of each other and often members of the community are not aware of these groups. Additionally, many of these organizations lack the resources to share their programs and potential for success broadly with the community.
Our vision is to partner with these organizations, as well as individuals and businesses, in an effort to promote their work, aid their success, and strengthen Damascus, Boring and our surrounding communities. We will do this by fostering and developing a robust calendar of social, educational and service activities that provide frequent opportunities for our community members to gather, learn, socialize, and work together toward common goals.
Discover for yourself just how much is happening in our local area by going to the Boring Damascus Community Connection – a new online calendar of Events. We encourage you to sign up on the site for your bi-monthly update.
