Over this past summer, members of the Chemeketa Center for Learning

In June they traveled to Astoria for the Scandinavian Festival. On
the way they watched for eagles and had lunch in Astoria.
In July they took a trip to Tillamook. They visited the Forestry Center,
the Air Museum and had lunch at the cheese factory.
Later in July they traveled to Silverton to explore the antique shops
and had lunch at a local restaurant.
In August they took an overnight trip to Mt. St. Helens with a stay
in an old monastery.
At the end of August they took to the water on the River Queen where
they had lunch. A side trip took them to the Hallie Ford Museum.
Finally, in early September they traveled to Portland to ride the sky
