Destination Sherwood


Tim Morgan with Portland Concierge Association members
Morback House, Sherwood Heritage Center

Dear Sherwood Historical Society,

I want to thank you for taking time to host [a group of visiting tour bus operators] on Thursday, March 24. We had about 30 people on the tour and they enjoyed it very much. I am offering the same trip (although smaller) for the downtown Portland Concierge Association on Monday, April 18. Will you be available on Monday, April 18 to do this? Here is a rough itinerary:

9:00am Leave from downtown Portland location
9:45am Magness Memorial Tree Farm
10:30am Downtown Sherwood
11:15am Sleighbells Gift Shop
11:45am Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge
12:15pm Ponzi Vineyard (stop for tour and lunch)
1:15pm Quick stop at Smith Berry Barn
2:00pm Jackson Bottom Wetlands Education Center
2:45pm Hazelnut Retail Store
3:30pm Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks & Minerals
4:30pm Return to starting point

Sincerely,

Tim Morgan
Washington County Visitors Association

Kudos, J.C. Those time travelers are keeping you busy! It's about time!

Time travelers indeed! As opposed to world travelers, who never understand more than the surface of things. "We're outsiders, we don't speak the language, we only glean what we can through what we read." --Maureen Wheeler, co-author of "Lonely Planet."

Whether traveling through time or space, a good traveler tries to learn about the place they are going to and "does as the Romans do," to coin a phrase. It is the journey that is focused on; a sense of time and place.....

As Lilly's friend June knows, a trip to France costs about as much as a child's college tuition these days, thanks to the decline of the American dollar overseas. Americans are looking for American destinations this summer, and I sure hope my town, the City of Sherwood, is ready for visitors!

That trip to France costs as much as a quarter of a semester of College, but you get the same amout of learning for the money. I hear there are to be Chinese visitors to Sherwood this summer I'm sure they will enjoy our town.

The Chinese are coming back? They were here first. They built the railroad through Sherwood. Of course you know that, Lilly. You were here. You saw the long pig tails, the queues, and wanted one for yourself.

That's true, J.C.!! I'd forgotten about that. We must make a display of that for this summer.
I've been wanting to make a Chinese
puppet.
