Boring & Damascus Communities Unite To Form New Community Area Calendar of Events

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.

Boring Oregon Online Store Opens to Help Build a Community Center

Recently, as friends were driving through Boring, the question was raised – where can one purchase something that is truly representative of Boring?  There is the Not So Boring Bar & Grill or the Red Apple for food or drink, the Boring  Garden Center and Boring Bark for great prices on plants, but how about a book, or a shirt?   The question was heard, and now has been answered.  The Boring Oregon Foundation has now launched a Boring Oregon Store online.   Featured at boring booksthis time is the newly released historical and pictorial book on Boring, written by local author, Dan Bosserman and a specially designed T-Shirt commemorating the special relationship between Boring, Oregon & Dull, Scotland as well as the new relationship both communities now also have with Bland Australia.

The Boring Oregon Foundation plans on expanding the store to accommodate many other items during the first week of October.  Sweatshirts, caps, cups, and who knows what other Boring items will be added.  Your credit card purchases can be delivered if you are  within the local area, or shipped anywhere within the United States.
