Portland AGO CHAPTER:  A Year in Review - Fall 2022 to May 2023


Thank you to all the chapter leaders, committee members, presenters and attendees who helped make this year a success.


Our chapter runs on volunteer energy.


Many hands make the work light - and many hands open opportunities for others to join into our community.  Take a quick review of what we shared - in community, in worship, with education, collegiality, and food!
