Upcoming EdVentures:

Dinner & Cello
Love music? Live in the North Beach area? Looking for a fun date night? You will love the Dinner & Cellos EDventure on January 10th. Board the bus at the Ocean Shores Convention Center, ride to Aberdeen’s trendy new restaurant Rediviva for an outstanding dinner and then continue to the GHC Bishop Center for a unique musical evening with the Portland Cello Project. This lively, enthusiastic blend of music—featuring six cellists, a vocalist, percussions, and horns—and will have you saying, “I’ve never heard a cello do that!” For 7 years, the Portland Cello Project (PCP to their affectionate fans) has built a reputation mixing genres and blurring musical lines and perceptions. Cost of $69.93, this includes Bishop Center admission, dinner and transportation. 5:00 PM-10:45 PM, Saturday 01/10, Item# 9572 Cost: $69.93

Mansions and Museums
Join us, as we travel together to experience the historic heart of Grays Harbor. We will look back in time, to the earlier days of Aberdeen and Hoquiam by visiting some of the historical landmarks that still grace our community. The day begins with a mansion in the morning, as we savor scones with tea (or coffee) at the Aberdeen Mansion and enjoy the details of the architecture and landscaping. Next, we are off to the Armory Building which houses the Aberdeen Museum of History, Grays Harbor Genealogical Society, and other community organizations for a look at the rich history behind the Armory and the community. At our final destination, John Larson, local historian and curator, of The Polson Museum will guide us through the 26 room mansion. There’s also the Railroad Camp where you can still get a glimpse of what historic logging around the area once was like.
Admissions to all three historic sites, morning tea & scones, lunch, and transportation from our Main Campus and Riverview Education Center in Raymond for $63.46. Riverview pick up: 8:15am - Main Campus: 9:00 am. Return to Main Campus: 3 pm and Riverview: 4 pm. 8:15 AM-4PM, Saturday 2/07, Item# 9573 Cost: $63.46

EDventure to Tornow Land
Join us as we step back in time and take a look at the untold story of John Tornow. Local author, Bill Lindstrom, will be guiding our EDvenutre to Tornow Land. Our first stop is the final shootout site, located on the Wynooche Valley Road; where John Tornow was gunned down in a hail of bullets. The memorial honors the six victims, alleged to have been killed by Tornow. Next stop will be the old Bauer homestead, where the Bauer boys lived when they were killed. The Bauer boys are two more alleged victims of Tornow. Visit the Grove Cemetery where, John Tornow is buried next to his parents, Frederick Daniel and Louisa Tornow; one row in front of the Bauer boys and their sister, Mary. From there we will explore an entire room dedicated to Tornow memorabilia, including artifacts unearthed at the memorial site at Mary M. Knight School and the Matlock Museum. There will be other locations of historical significance pointed out along the way back to Montesano for lunch at the Beehive restaurant. Upon returning to the college we will enjoy a PowerPoint presentation and discussion, finishing with a Q & A and book signing by Mr. Lindstrom. The cost is only $84.88, which includes tour, lunch, and a signed copy of “Villain or Victim?” The untold story of the “Wildman of the Wynooche” by Bill Lindstrom. Limited seats available, register today. 8:30 AM-4:00 PM, Saturday 3/14, Item # 9571 Cost: $84.88
