Join us at the December education program!  Our education will be around designing and implementing sustainable events, which will include a back-of-the-house tour of Providence Park.  We will end the day with a wreath-making, networking reception, and a celebration of MPI Oregon's 40th Anniversary!

Wreath Making:
Price: $25 per wreath

Skip the extra trip to the store and bring home a decorated wreath from MPI Oregon's December Education event! We will have a table set up with decorations if you want something a bit more festive, but all wreaths will be fresh and come with a small decoration already on there to get you in the holiday spirit. 

In heartfelt appreciation, we extend our thanks to RPS Events for graciously providing wreaths and decorations, setting the stage for creativity at our event. Your generosity allows the attendees to infuse their personal touch, turning each wreath into a unique masterpiece. Your support of MPI Oregon is truly the foundation of our community driven celebration.
