The nonprofit successor to the PP&R 'Sellwood Community Center' celebrates, and sells gift baskets

DAVID F. ASHTON - Putting finishing touches on some outgoing Sellwood Community House Harvest Baskets before they are to be delivered are, from left, Program Managers Ashley Asbjornsen, Elizabeth Milner, and Erin Fryer. Bustling activity was taking place, once again, at nonprofit Sellwood Community House (SCH), on Wednesday afternoon, September 23 – drawing neighbors and volunteers to S.E. 15th and Spokane Street.

"Today, we're inviting people to shop the first of two consecutive pop-up craft markets, and to learn about our upcoming Fall program," grinned SCH Program Manager Elizabeth Milner.

"Our activities are outdoors, physically-distant -- and masks are required," Milner assured. "In addition to the craft market going on in our playground, 'Silver Julep' is here, selling handmade drink mixers; and, we're selling art kits for people to decorate little wooden hearts that will be displayed on our fence!"

Also, the delivery of forty "Sellwood Community House Harvest Baskets" was underway that afternoon.

"Once again, we've partnered with a bunch of local businesses, to load baskets with goodies from Wallace Books, Chakralot, Silver Julep, Camamu Soap Company, Sellwood Flower Company, and Sellwood Candle Company, along with care products from 'Styled by Nicolette'," Milner told THE BEE. "And, don't forget to order your SCH Holiday Baskets early, so you don't miss out!"
