Deep Woods – A Grateful Celebration

Karol Niemeyer - Friday, October 24, 2014
"In 2012, a dream was realized for the owners and proprietors of the Deep Woods Events’ Center in Elmira, Oregon: completing phase one of an amazing indoor hosting site for events held on their grounds. In that same year, a dream of Mid Lane Cares, a local community service organization, also came to fruition: throwing a thank you party for the amazing volunteers of our many essential programs. Happily, the dreams realized by both were also dreams shared. Deep Woods owners are invested in their local community and generously shared their new space in hosting the first “grateful celebration” dinner.

Mid Lane Cares offers programs to meet community needs ranging from basic help with food and utilities, to youth sports scholarship, meals and activities for seniors, and holiday programs for children and home bound elders. These are services made possible by the work of more than 300 volunteers. We want to thank them properly for the gifts they share so generously.

And we want to thank Deep Woods Event Center for helping us do so with great care. Karol always does a beautiful job decorating the dining hall. The kitchen is just the right size and well equipped. Charlie keeps the grounds immaculate. Guests know they have come some place special."
