ALF Class 29 meet in Tualatin last week. Hosted by class member Mayor Lou Ogden, the class was treated to a walking tour of the area around the Commons. Later, they heard varying perspectives on a proposed southwest corridor transit plan by ALF senior fellows John Charles (Class 5), and Bernie Bottomly (Class 20).

Watch this space for photos of Class 29 as their year progresses!
