100 Years of Service

Auxiliary Centennial Celebration | August 20

This year marks a century of existence for one long-running organization on campus: the George Fox University Auxiliary. Amanda Woodward and Evangeline Martin – two pioneering women who are the namesakes of the historic Wood-Mar Hall – founded the auxiliary on Oct. 15, 1910. The mission, which has remained unchanged these 100 years, is to "enlist a larger constituency in the promotion of the interests of the college socially, and to aid in its better equipment for work, along such lines as may be found to be effective."

The primary instigation for the organization’s founding was to support students in the college’s dormitory. The group has done everything from painting stairways to canning hundreds of quarts of fruit to feed students.

These days, most of the funds are raised at the annual December holiday bazaar that began in 1965. Since 2000, all proceeds now fund a student leadership scholarship through an endowment fund that has reached $64,000 and awards $2,500 annually. Join us as we celebrate 100 years of the auxiliary’s service on Aug. 20. For more information, contact Sheri Philips, executive director of university relations, at 503-554-2114.


Selah - "It’s time to simplify" | September 25

Full closets, packed garages, overbooked schedules, demanding relationships, to-do lists, and a constant stream of e-mail messages and paperwork clamor for attention. These trappings of life deplete our spirits because we were created by God to live with simplicity and order. Come to Selah and be encouraged to step into the freedom of a de-cluttered life!

Speakers include Vicki Norris, the president of Restoring Order, radio host Georgene Rice and George Fox University’s campus pastor Sarah Baldwin. Olivia Pothoff will be the worship leader. georgefox.edu/selah
