Calendar of Events for 2021–2022 (and other important dates)

These are our primary events for the year. Interest group get-togethers, special events put on by First Book Portland® and impromptu events will be announced in our monthly eNewsletters and on this page.

Electronic invitations are sent prior to our events since nearly all of our paid members have Internet access. Many of our events are open to non-members and non-Pi Phi guests.

"COOKING UP FUN IN 2021 AND BEYOND"

For the most part, Oregon required masks from March 2020 through June 2021. We were able to have one in-person event for more than a handful of members in August 2020. Thank you to Julia Tucker for planning the socially distanced event (we stood together briefly to snap the photo). Julia is our new Programming & Events Chairman for 2021-2022.

To kick off 2019–2020, we gathered at Andi Mariani's home for an afternoon of food, wine, fun and friendship. We welcomed five first-time attendees, three of whom are recent graduates, one Golden Arrow and one who lives primarily in Texas.

To kick off 2017–2018, we gathered at Maja's home for a high tea party. Barb Buttler (top left) and Lisa Critchlow (standing by Barb) received unanimous votes as proposed alumna initiate members. Collegiate Region Seven Membership Specialist Carolyn Much Reil (holding the "C" sign) captured the entire event in photos and video for Pi Beta Phi's Instagram account in a "social media takeover." Club founder Patty Batchelder Melrose is holding the "H" sign ... Club President Susan Jonnatti Maxwell and Vice President of Finance Peggy Bennett Lawson are holding the two "E" signs ... new member and Title I teacher Whitney Kirby Berger is holding the "R" sign ... and sustaining club member Jeanne Krouse Bliss is holding the "S" sign. Susan, Peggy, Marilyn DeBonny (above Jeanne) and Maja Tanaka Berge (right) prepared the goodies for the tea.
