summer camp: Things to do in Silverton, Or - Week of July 31-Aug 7, 2012 - 08/01/12 04:08 AM
Homer Davenport Days are here again! This weekend, Silverton celebrates Homer Davenport, an internationally renowned political cartoonist. I have a greater appreciation of the meaning behind this event and the man we celebrate after reading his coming of age memoir, The Country Boy. Highly recommended reading for any Silverton or Willamette Valley resident.
I've always enjoyed this week-end because it becomes a class / family / friend reunion where our townspeople, past and present gather together. And, somehow I've been roped into pushing a Davenport on wheels down Main Street. See you in Silverton!
