Zoom back to the future for football

Since you’re watching rerun sporting events on television, why not join the West Linn Historical Society to learn about football and its earliest roots in Oregon? Who were those first football players in Portland and where did they play? When was the first college game played in Oregon, and when did those Ducks and Beavers show up? Join me as I share my great-grandfather and fellow footballer stories from the early 1890s, and see early photos of what we now know as Providence Park.

This is a free event sponsored by the West Linn Historical Society and we would love to have you join us this Sunday, May 17 at 7 pm on Zoom! So, pop your popcorn, sip your favorite drink and imagine those early Oregon days.
