FolkTime Silent Auction

FolkTime 30th Birthday and Silent Auction

Please join us to celebrate 30 years of serving our members!

You’ll enjoy music, dancing, wonderful local wines to pair with delectable hors d’oeuvres

while celebrating all the great work done over the last 30 years.

FolkTime began thirty years ago when a group of local churches conducted a survey to determine what social needs were not being addressed in our community.

The survey identified a concern for adults with mental illness who were socially isolated.

With a lot of hard work and dedication, a committee from the Ecumenical Ministries Church headed by Joann Seeger,

began what is now Free to Be Me Community Center in Northeast Portland.

Fast forward thirty years and our Free to Be Me Community Center provides over 370 meals a month to more than 200 members.

Free to Be Me Community Center is supported by individuals like you who understand the importance of such programming.

This event will help fund field trips, nutritious meals, and classes offered by FolkTime.

We look forward to seeing you
