Dear Friends of Habitat for Humanity,
We again enthusiastically invite you to attend this year’s “Hearts for Humanity” Annual Auction!
As in the past, we will be hosting this signature event at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club (directions enclosed), on Saturday, February 15, 2014. The festivities with hors d’oeuvres, wine and a no-host bar will get underway at 6:30 p.m.
Items will be available both for silent bidding and for an exciting, fun-filled oral auction later in the evening. The Silent Auction will last until 7:45, and following welcome remarks by West Tuality Habitat for Humanity President Mike Hundley, Auctioneer extraordinaire Al Miller will once again use his savoir faire and je ne sais quoi to extract dollars from you and your friends for a very good cause.
Items this year in both the silent and oral auction include the following:
- Beach house getaways at Manzanita, Pacific City, Neskowin and elsewhere on the Oregon Coast;
- A lunch a month for one year from Forest Grove favorite, Maggie’s Buns;
- Golf outings at both Pumpkin Ridge and Quail Valley;
- Gift cards from local merchants and businesses, such as Fred Meyer and Cain’s Chevron;
- Tickets to various athletic events in the region, including the TrailBlazers and Pacific University football Boxers;
- Artwork, including pieces by prominent local artists, including Amanda Houston and Bob Schlegel, and;
- The ever popular Fire Hydrant from the City of Forest Grove.
This is a great evening to renew old friendships, make new lifelong friends, and enjoy each other’s company. Dancing to the music of Brett Lucich and his Group will add a luster to this already fun-filled evening that will also help us to Habitat’s work. Our goal this year is to raise $57,000 and with your help, we can do it!
See you Saturday night, February 15 to celebrate “Hearts for Humanity”!

In Memorium – Linda Kroll
West Tuality Habitat for Humanity and the entire community of Forest Grove lost a dear friend this month with the death recently of one of our long time volunteers, Linda Kroll. Linda died Sunday, January 19, 2014.
Linda served West Tuality Habitat for Humanity by organizing, preparing, coordinating, and doing just about everything else to insure that our upcoming event, the “Hearts for Humanity” Annual Auction and Gala was held in such a way that everyone who attended enjoyed themselves, had a grand time, and at the same time, gave of their good fortunes to a most worthy and deserving cause.
Linda is survived by her husband, Richard, children Trent and Darla Kroll and Chanda and Tyler Chen, and her grandchildren, Elena and Emma Kroll, as well as all she touched by her unyielding work at making life better for all she knew.
West Tuality Habitat for Humanity, indeed the world, is a better place because of her care and her compassion. Linda’s husband Richard, serves as West Tuality Habitat for Humanity Construction Volunteer Coordinator for the house projects.
Memorial Services will be held at the Forest Grove United Church of Christ in Forest Grove on Sunday, February 23, 2014, at 2 p.m.
