Our city’s rich and colorful history is the centerpiece of the 2019 “Tualatin Heritage Evening” Friday, Sept. 13 at 6 p.m.

Entry for the evening festivities is $35. This is our only fundraiser of the year. Featured again will be NW wines, tasty foods and opportunities to bid on prized items. There will be a silent auction, raffle, mystery wine pull and cash “pay and take” table.

Funds raised at this popular annual event help the Society preserve and interpret its growing collection of artifacts, photographs and oral histories. Enjoy our new displays and exhibits.

Descendants of iconic families who shaped Tualatin history will be present to answer questions. The presentation will be backed up by the easy-listening music of pianist/guitarist Kevin Mark Eberhart.

The $10 raffle tickets offer chances for three cash prizes ranging from $500 to $100. Only 250 will be sold and winners will be drawn that evening. However, winners do not need to be present. Call Tualatin Heritage Center (503-885-1926) or email cindy.thc@yahoo.com.

A new feature in 2019 is a speedy “pay and take” option which allows guests to avoid check-out lines for gift cards and certain other items without waiting to see who won the
final bid.

Thousands of persons pass through the Center’s doors each year to look up family information, see historical artifacts, attend lectures, listen to concerts, enjoy plays, create art, attend workshops, enjoy plays, celebrate anniversaries, attend weddings and buy books and gifts. In addition to operating the heritage center for the City, volunteers at the Center host 4th grade students for Pioneer Days in June, make presentations to local groups, and facilitate history-related displays in other venues such as schools, the Library and in local businesses.
