We at Forest Grove Aikido have been asked to do an aikido demonstration Sunday 31 July.
The demonstration will be part of:
"Fiesta in the Park" on July 31 at Harleman Park in Cornelius, Oregon sponsored by the Ford Institute 2016 Leadership Program. The theme for this all-ages, multicultural event is We are Washington County/Somos Washington County. Their goal is to offer a free, fun event that offers great food, entertainment and activities for all ages in celebration of the people and cultures of western Washington County.I have decided to approach the demonstration more like a seminar. I will be there from 3 to 6 p.m. running aikido classes for the members who come. The objective will be to train, answer questions visitors ask, and conduct short introductory sessions for people who are interested.
Everyone is invited to a barbecue at my house in Forest Grove afterward.
I'm using SignUp.com to organize this event.

This looks to be a nice event for the whole family. I don't know all of the other things happening there but I do know there will be demonstrations from an MMA group, Taiko drumming [both close to 3pm], and food.
