Beaverton Chamber: Well worth the morning commute
Photos and Story by Dana Haynes
So the college president had to make an appearance at the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce on Thursday and so I cheerfully agreed to staff the event with him.
Then I realized it was set for 7:30 a.m. Which meant driving into Washington County during morning rush hour.
It’s not Beaverton. It’s that I’m just not a morning person.
So we go, the president does his thing, I hand out the tchotchkes, he makes his pitch, and we head back to Sylvania. Me grumbling because, seriously, I was a copy editor most of my life and 7:30 a.m. is mean.
But we no more get back to the campus when word comes that the chamber wants to endorse our bond measure! They made their decision so decisively, so fast, that they beat me getting back to my office!
Granted, I stopped for a bagel, but still! Give it up for the business community in the Beaverton area. We’re impressed!
