"Conference Center Gives Back", An Eventective User from Salem, OR
A few days after Hurricane Katrina I got the idea to hold a quilt-a-thon in my community in order to send a little love to our fellow Americans in the south. It would be a huge endeavor requiring a large space. But where? When I approached Salem Conference Center they barely hesitated before agreeing to donate an entire weekend for the event.

For three full days a few weeks later over 200 people gathered to work together on this huge community project. The Conference Center graciously provided for all of our electrical needs in a giant room. The sewing machines, cutting tables and irons were set up and we went to work.

In the end over a hundred quilts were transported to Louisiana and Mississippi and the folks of Salem, Oregon felt like they had sent a little comfort to their neighbors in the south. Had it not been for Salem Conference Center's amazing generosity the project never could have been accomplished.
