Second Annual Beer and Wine Tasting Event A Success!


On Saturday, July 21st we had our Second Annual Beer and Wine Tasting Event. We chose for this event to benefit the USS Ranger Foundation. They are working to save the USS Ranger through public and private partnerships and bring it to Fairview, Oregon on the beautiful Columbia River as a museum, military memorial and civic center.

Many generous individuals and local companies including: Creative Visions Landscapes and Water Garden Center, Francis Xaviers, Gresham Ford, i4 Marketing, Jazzy Bagels, Nancy’s Floral, Night Owl Custom Apparel, Ron Pompel, USS Ranger Foundation donated raffle items. The proceeds of the raffle tickets and 20% of all purchases were donated to The USS Ranger Foundation.

Thanks to our great customers & the generous companies we exceeded our fundraising goal. We will be presenting the funds to the Ranger Foundation on Friday, July 27th at the Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce meeting at RiverView Community Bank.

Best Burger Gournet Food Cart catered the event, and the food was plentiful & mouth-watering. Skyland Pub conducted the beer tasting, which included a special Ranger Beer. Alder Tree Vineyard conducted the wine tasting, which everyone really enjoyed as well! The event was a real hit and we are already working on our Forth Annual Wine Tasting Event for the summer of 2013.

Meet… Koi #1:


Silver, Blue/Black & Orange with Red Splotches



This cool, metallic-looking guy admitted has a strange habit: he loves to pretend he is a wild steelhead since he believes he bears a striking resemblance to them!  Also, his favorite television show is “Hillbilly Handfishing” because he likes to imagine that the crazy people catching the catfish are actually being eaten, which makes him chuckle.

Meet… Koi #2:





This striking gal’s favorite activity is playing peek-a-boo behind the water lettuce that grows in the pond.  She is a ray of sunshine within this group of fish and has a great sense of humor.  She also loves long swims at the bottom of the pond and nibbling gourmet fish food dinners by candlelight.

Meet… Koi #3:


Black with Orange Scale Plating



This guy’s markings are quite exceptional: when the sun hits him just right, his scales exude an orange color so that it seems as though his scales are a fish-netting texture.  Not only is he physically unique, but this big lug is quite the character!  He enjoys the occasional pet and stroke by the store workers, and he also loves to show off his impressive ability to breach– just as if he were a mini-whale (Although he certainly is not a mini-koi—he is the longest of the group!).  When asked what actor would play him in a movie of his life, he enthusiastically answered: Free Willy or Brad Pitt, whoever is available.

Meet… Koi #4:


White, Orange, & Black



The smallest of the bunch, this young chap is happiest when he gets to tag along with the rest of the gang.  He is a bit self-conscious about his crooked tail, but Koi #2 (our yellow gal) cheers him up and helps him joke about it.  He loves to follow her under the water lettuce where they play peek-a-boo together.  His strangest habit is that he enjoys attempting to perform the side stroke by periodically swimming completely on his side.  He says that is inspired by Nemo from the film Finding Nemo because he doesn’t let his tiny fin stop him from living a life of adventure!

Meet Koi #5:


White, Black & Blue



This lady is not only gorgeous, but has an alluring personality.  She enjoys welcoming visitors by gracefully swimming over in order to dazzle them with her stunning markings and her attractively plump belly.  Her dream is to compete in a beauty contest and win her very own tiara.  Her celebrity crush is Prince Harry, and she believes she would make an elegant addition to the royal family.

First Annual Wine Tasting Event

On Saturday, July 16th we had our First Annual Evening of Wine and Food. We chose for this event to benefit Shepherd’s Door. Shepherd’s Door, a division of the Portland Rescue Mission, is a refuge of safety and healing for women and children.

Many generous local companies including: Bella Cupcakes, Gresham Ford, Gresham Town Fair Chiropractic, Iris Healing Arts, Nancy J. Smith – Nature Photographer, Silk Espresso donated raffle items. The proceeds of the raffle tickets and 20% of all purchases were donated to Shepherd’s Door.

Thanks to our great customers & the generous companies we were able to raise $1000.

Tumbleweed Barbecue catered the event, and the food was plentiful & mouth-watering. Alder Tree Vineyard conducted the wine tasting, which everyone really enjoyed as well!

The event was a real hit and we are already working on our Second Annual Wine Tasting Event for the summer of 2012.
