Chatting with Ann Matthews of Arktana shoes

Arktana shoes in downtown Camas is celebrating their 2nd anniversary soon! I met up with Ann to see how her store has grown and what type of fun events and great shopping are going on here! At the end of the interview check out the three things I am wearing that you can purchase at Arktana shoes. Support local business.
***If you share this interview on Facebook you will be entered into a drawing for a free pair of Tom’s shoes! Ann will pick the lucky winner before spring break! Will it be you? Make sure to tag Arktana in your post!***

5th Grade Luncheon at Prune Hill Elementary

Last week I had to wonderful opportunity to attend the 5th grade luncheon at Prune Hill Elementary. These students got to attend a Portland Youth Philharmonic concert and then come back to their school for a formal, white linen luncheon put on by the PTA and served by their parents. Weeks leading up to this luncheon these kids went over manners, etiquette and behavior in formal dining situations. What a great gift to give these young people to go out in the world with. Hoping to inspire other elementary schools to do the same. Check it out!

Meet this bike rider! Ms. Connie Pappas

As I drive around town I have seen this lovely woman on her bike riding all around in all kinds of weather. I have been inspired watching her ride around town and wanted to get to know who this lovely woman is. Well, she is Connie Pappas, the wonderful librarian at Skyridge Middle School. Tune is as she shares about her love for her bike and why she rides!
