WEST LINN OLD TIME FAIR:  This annual mid-July weekend event takes place at Willamette Park in West Linn. We sell delicious, hot, fresh "Lion Paws"  aka elephant ears.  This is one of our largest fundraisers of the year.

BOWL-A-THON:  Every March we sponsor, along with the WL Lions Club, a bowl-a-thon to earn funds for the Oregon Sight and Hearing Foundation. Over the last 20 years the event has raised over $100,000 for the OLSHF.

SPRING FLOWER SALE:   Held on the Saturday before Mother's Day in May at Bolton School in West Linn.  Gorgeous, huge baskets for sun or shade and bedding plants - just in time for Mom!

ENGLISH TEA:   Every year on the first Saturday in June we hold our English Tea fundraiser.   Members serve a delicious proper English Tea at the beautiful and historic McLean House in West Linn.
