The first edition private wine label for Oregon PCA was announced at our 2018 Summer picnic at Stoller Winery.  We still have some left! It is a 2016 Pinot Noir that is great. 
The first-production Porsche was the 356, so it’s appropriately featured on the first edition private wine label for ORPCA. This is a great gift for those people who are difficult to buy for.

Come see exciting Winterhawks action as they take on the Royals from Victoria, Canada. The puck drops at 5:00 PM on Sunday, March 8 at the Moda Center. Right now, Portland is #2 in their division with 20 wins. Victoria is just 3 games behind in their division with 15 wins. After this game there will only be 2 games remaining in the regular season. It should be a great game!

We recently lost a dear and respected member of our Porsche community. We are rasing money to create a memorial in her honor at the Oregon Garden. Depending on the total amount raised, the ORPCA board discussed a river rock with Kathleen’s name on it because of her love of river rafting or a garden bench for her love of landscaping.
If you would like to make a donation please go here: Kathleen Ellis Memorial

ORPCA member, Julie Madrid, has arranged an eight day river cruise from Nuremberg to Budapest in October of 2020 for Oregon Region members. For more information, go to ORPCA Danube River Cruise 2020.
