Aurora, Oregon Gets National Attention

What’s being called the ‘100 Strong’ program is rooted in the history of Aurora, Oregon, an early colony committed to the concept of helping others.

Aurora was founded on the working example of “love your neighbor as yourself,” and that success drives the ‘100 Strong’ program today. It is now a goal to bring the program to communities all around Oregon. TV host Doug Llewelyn formerly of “The People’s Court” fame interviews two key participants in Aurora Oregon’s ‘100 Strong’ campaign.

Aurora Colony Museum Turns 50!

A local newspaper reports 2013 is a big year for the Aurora Colony Museum. That’s due in part to this being the 50th anniversary of the Aurora Colony Historical Society.

If you enjoy a terrific ‘small town’ event that’s lots of fun, don’t miss the Aurora Colony Days Parade. This is truly a family-friendly event which begins at the Aurora City Park. Because the parade route runs through much of town, you really can’t miss it.
