BIG THANKS to the following organizations and businesses for providing financial and/or in-kind sponsorship of WNA’s 2013 Harvest Halloween celebration, coming up October 31st:
|MICHAEL GARY PHOTOGRAPHY
Woodstock-based photographer Michael Gary is excited to be partnering with Woodstock Neighborhood Association for this event. Michael’s time and talent and WNA’s sponsorship of supplies will enable up to 250 attendees to receive a complementary 4″x6″ photo print of their child/children in costume. Michael is in the process of launching a new business, Photo Booths Portland, which will offer “Open Air” as well as traditional “Solid Shell” photo booths, and he plans to demo a fancy new printer at this event.
|SOUTHSIDE SWAP & PLAY
The new kid on the block, Southside Swap & Plan is a cooperatively run organization dedicated to building community in SE Portland through a shared play space and the exchange of useful children’s goods. Southside Swap & Play is renting several classrooms at Our Lady of Sorrows campus (5239 SE Woodstock Blvd.) which are already full of toys, games books, and various swappables. In addition to being a financial sponsor of the WNA Harvest Halloween happening, Southside Swap & Play is providing pumpkin-scented playdough for one of our event’s hands-on activities.
|CORNHOLE BY O’TINGLEY
Speaking of hands-on activities, O’Tingley, maker of “the finest quality cornhole boards in the Pacific Northwest,” is contributing the use of a couple of their fine game boards for entertainment at our Halloween bash. We’ll have them set up right out front, under cover in case of rain. Based on the professional level of these particular Cornhole game boards, we expect this activity to be a big hit with the adults at our party, as well the little ones…

Located at 5006 SE Long Street, this Woodstock neighborhood-based business is more than a craft studio. LoneSomeVille boasts a lovingly restored farmhouse on a very large lot surrounded by beautiful gardens. LoneSomeVille gardens are open May through October, and their showroom is open by appointment. One of their two seasonsl open houses is a spectacularly spooky autumn celebration, this year on Saturday, October 26 from 5 to 8pm.
