All groups are multi-aged. A small adult to kid ratio assures that your child isn’t just another face in the crowd. The cost is $20.00 per child and includes a camp t-shirt. Download a registration at For more information, call the church office at 503.644.3156.

Now you can Charm Somebody

Karyn Servin, a local freelance illustrator and designer, launched her greeting card company, Charm Somebody, in January. The company’s line of greeting cards offer wishes for every-day-life experiences. Each of the 48 different cards includes a pewter charm, engraved with an inspirational wish. Karyn’s parents, who are Beaverton residents, help with the business along with her husband and older son, who is 9. Karyn says: “It is our belief at Charm Somebody that it is our moral imperative to give back, to tread lightly and spread joy. We do this by donating 1% of net profits to children’s charities; using 50% recycled paper and sending heartfelt wishes to the world on our cards.” Charm Somebody is a new member of the Cedar Mill Business Association. The cards can be found locally at all New Seasons Markets and at Occasions Fine Gifts on Barnes. The company’s website charmsomebody will have an online retail store soon.
