Thanksgiving, A Time To Reflect - A Time For Sharing. Info here!
Serving warm food, warm smiles

Happy Thanksgiving!

For most families, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on everything you’ve been given, and be grateful for all that you have.

This year may be tough for many of us. But no matter how bad things are looking for you this year, there’s always someone who has it worse. So this year, take the time to give thanks for all that’s good in your own life -- and to give to others who may not share the same good fortune this Thanksgiving.

Give from the heart

Help brighten the holiday for someone in need.

  • Donate time or money to a local charity or food pantry
  • Donate a Thanksgiving basket to a neighbor in need
  • Volunteer at a local soup kitchen or homeless shelter
  • Deliver Thanksgiving meals to housebound seniors

Volunteer this holiday, and share the season!

Have a great Thanksgiving!

If you have ever thought about volunteering at the Zimmerman House or joining ECHO (East County Historical Organization) -- now's your chance to learn more! We are holding two "open house" events: on Thursday, April 12th from 4pm - 7pm and Saturday, April 14th from 9am-noon. The Zimmerman House is at 17111 NE Sandy Blvd in Gresham. Stop by and join us for a cup of coffee and cookies.

ECHO was formed in 1987 and is home to both the Zimmerman House and Heslin House museums. We are an all-volunteer organization at this time, and are looking for new members and volunteers to support the preservation work at both sites, do basic office work, help with marketing, work in the gardens, etc.

The historic Zimmerman House was built in 1874 and was home to three generations of the Zimmerman Family. Their furnishings and personal articles remain in this two-story Victorian home, with nine rooms open to the public. We are hoping to be open to the public every Saturday again this summer, and are recruiting new volunteers to be on-site.
