Looking for Market Vendors!

Market Vendors,
We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our first Rosewood National Night Out Market on Thursday, August 6th from 5-8pm.  National Night Out is a week long celebration held in communities across the country as a way to build community and combat crime across the United States.
Last year we had a free community dinner and live music that drew around 300 community members.  This year we thought, “Why not raise the bar and add a market?”, so we’re doing just that! The market will be an outdoor market and will again feature live music and a free community dinner!
If you are interested in being a vendor sign-up here.  If you have any questions feel free to email me at tony@rosewoodinitive.org or call at 503-208-2562.  I look forward to seeing you at the market!

Snowman Foundation!


The Snowman Foundation works to give the gift of music to all children.  For The Rosewood Initiative that meant receiving a refurbished piano that is available for community members to play whenever they stop by the community center.  Rosewood team member Tony Lamb was honored to thank the Snowman Foundation and share a little about what the piano has meant to the Rosewood community at their annual 10 Grands fundraiser.  The event was a great opportunity to support a fellow organization doing amazing work in our community and hear top-notch performers utilize their gift.  Again, thank you so much for the piano Snowman Foundation and feel free to stop by the Rosewood community center to play!
