Seeking local artists and designers: The Forest Grove Farmers Market has opened its annual contest to design the farmers market poster for the season!  The top three entries receive cash prizes, and the winner has their artwork published and promoted all around the city and county!  Check out the "FGFM News" page on our website for more information, and remember that submissions are due to us by Friday, March 30.

Felicidades, Carrie and Thacher! Carrie Pederson (Adelante Mujeres English Language Development Instructor and Volunteer Coordinator) and her husband Thacher Schmid celebrate the birth of a healthy baby girl!

Radio Disney Spotlight: Tune in to Radio Disney, AM 1640, this Sunday, March 18 at 6:30 am to hear Eduardo Corona, Cecilia Giron, and Kati Mayfield talk about Adelante on the "Things You Should Know Show".  We know, we know, 6:30 is una hora indecente (obscenely early), but we're really excited and grateful to be featured on their program!

A Fiesta of Hope: In case you haven't already registered, Adelante Mujeres will be holding its annual fundraising gala, A Fiesta of Hope on Saturday, April 14th at 6:30pm at the Walters Cultural Arts Center in Hillsboro.  Join us for delicious dinner and beverages, a silent auction, and SALSA DANCING LESSONS!  You know you want to!


On February 29th, Adelante Mujeres was awarded the Edible Portland Local Hero award in the Nonprofit category.  If you don't already subscribe to the magazine, Edible Portland is a great source for information about exciting innovations in food and sustainability in the Portland area, published by Ecotrust.  We are so honored to have been nominated for this award, and are simply tickled to have won.  Learn more about the awards and our fellow recipients at the Ecotrust blog: "Edible Portland honors Local Heroes".
