Rose City Toasters Open House @ Columbia River Correctional Institution
Dec 6 @ 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Come support one of our prison clubs as they promote themselves to their fellow inmates. The Open House will be in the chow hall at Columbia River Correctional Institution and will include the option for visitors to purchase a dinner of rotisserie chicken, dinner rolls, and mac & cheese. The price for the dinner is to be determined and would need to be paid in advance (November 22 I think), but people also have the option to attend the Open House for free. Guest attendance is capped at 40 people. Advanced screening may be required if you haven’t visited this prison club before.

I will update this announcement as I receive more information from the event organizer.
