On Saturday, March 16th, Friends of Pier Park was recognized, at the annual Celebrate North Portland dinner, for extraordinary commitment and service to North Portland. The award was a surprise, at least to the FoPP board member and volunteer who was attending the dinner. Fortunately, Mary Ann Aschenbrenner, Technology Officer was there to accept the award. She took advantage of the opportunity to invite the attendees to come to a FoPP meeting and thank Mike Verbout for his continuing service to this community.
Former FoPP board member, Pamela Plance was also recognized for her service to our community.
