Miss Oregon Honors Mother's Day at Oregon City's Pioneer Community Center (Photo) - 05/10/24

Miss Oregon, Allison Burke, brought joy and celebration to the Pioneer Community Center on May 10 as part of the Mother's Day festivities. 

Burke, adorned in her Miss Oregon sash and crown, joined volunteers and staff in serving a Congregate lunch to over 50 guests. She also took the stage to share her experiences from her year of service, emphasizing the program's focus on personal successes in community service, academics, and performing arts. 

Additionally, Burke shared her personal connection to Meals on Wheels and Hunger Free America as her Social Impact Initiative, which has been a passion of hers since a young age. She spoke eloquently about the importance of addressing food insecurity in our communities and outlined her ongoing efforts to raise awareness and support for these vital organizations. 

Adding to the festive atmosphere, Burke delighted the audience with a classical violin piece followed by an upbeat fiddle tune, showcasing her musical talents to the delight of all present. 

In recognition of the mothers in attendance, the Pioneer Community Center presented roses, cookies, and tea treats, along with an array of self-care gift bags for raffle prizes, spreading love and appreciation on this special day.
