Oregon Army National Guard to open new Career Center in Oregon City
 
The Oregon Army National Guard is celebrating the grand opening of its newest Career Center in Oregon City, Ore., from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., on Feb. 24.

The Career Center is located at the Berry Hill Shopping Center, 19093 South Beavercreek Rd., in Oregon City, Ore.

"To save money, most of our Career Centers are located in National Guard armories," said Col. Alaine Encabo, the Recruiting and Retention Battalion Commander. "While there is no armory in Oregon City, we still thought it was important to have a Guard presence in the area, and this Career Center offered an excellent opportunity to be a part of the local community."

The Career Center will be manned by three National Guard Career Counselors. The center will service the communities of Oregon City, Molalla, Canby, Wilsonville, West Linn, Lake Oswego, Colton, Milwaukie and Gladstone. It will serve as a place where Oregonians can learn about Oregon Army National Guard opportunities.

The public and the media are invited to attend. There will be a military vehicle display at the grand opening, along with interactive activities and free prizes. Light refreshments will be served.
