Portland, June 23rd. Seventy five people joined the Midsummer Celebration for the Zimmerman Community Center at KitchenCru and CorksCru in the Pearl District. Guests ate from Portland’s popular culinary workspace, sampled wines from five “indie” vineyards, and supported Zimmerman Community Center. The center moved into its new space in the north end of the Pearl one year ago. At  the event, John McCalla guided three children through the final phases of a beading project.
