Banquet for Families of Deployed Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen
 
Banquet for Families of Deployed Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen
 
The Oregon National Guard Enlisted and Officer’s Association has sponsored and is inviting the immediate families of all deployed U.S. military personnel in Oregon to a banquet at the University of Portland on December 14, 2003, 1–4 p.m. at the Commons Building at the University of Portland.
 
This buffet-style holiday banquet will not have a formal program. Santa will be there with toys for the children and there will be a craft area to create cards and gifts to send overseas. There will be music and helpful handouts for families such as phone cards and information.
 
The feast will be a good time for family members to visit each other, share impressions, and relax during the holiday season. The Enlisted and Officers Associations of the Oregon National Guard feels this is one way they can take care of troops by taking care of the families of mobilized soldiers.
 
Dependant family members are invited to get tickets at no cost. Other immediate family members are also invited and may purchase tickets for $5 each.
 
If you would like to attend please call (503)359-0334 or (503)730-3477, Maj. Keith Ensley or 1st Sgt. Laueger.
 
Tickets are available by calling or visiting one of (6) Portland Area National Guard Armories. Directions to The Commons are also available by calling.
 
(Gresham – Hillsboro - Forest Grove – McMinnville - St. Helens - and the Beaverton National Guard Recruiting Station)
