Lake Oswego Potluck & Fireside

4th Sunday of the Month

6:00 pm Potluck

7:00 pm Fireside

Merlin and Valerie Wilkinson
 Oregon Portland Area Coordinating Council JustServe Specialists 



Talk Summary:   
Thomas Paine once said "the highest calling of every individual in a democratic society is that of a citizen!" Our communities need us now more than ever. From the earliest days in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have been encouraged to engage in service beyond the walls of our homes and chapels. Come listen to the Wilkinson’s share insights on how JustServe not only helps find opportunities near our homes to help those in need and improve the quality of life; but it also helps us as individuals.
 
BIO:
Merlin and Valerie Wilkinson married after a whirlwind romance while attending BYU 39 years ago. Law school for Merlin brought them to Oregon where they fell in love with the beautiful landscape and people. They created a close family unit with all 4 of their children and all 9 of their grandchildren residing in the greater Portland area.
Merlin is a Family Law Attorney and Valerie, after 28 years at Intel, now leads a tech start up based out of SLC. They are avid Portland Trail Blazer fans and have had season tickets for 13 years. They are the Area JustServe Specialists for the Portland Coordinating Council and served in Area Public Affairs for many years, as well.
The Wilkinson’s reserve most Friday nights for Cousin Time where all the grandkids sleepover at their home so their parents can have much needed date nights and the cousins have bonding time with each other and their grandparents. That means a lot of noise is coming out of the Wilkinson home on Friday nights!
