The Restoration Celebration

The ceremonial opening gala, The Restoration Celebration, launched the official welcome of Cerimon House to the Alberta Arts district, and to the community at-large. A glittering crowd celebrated the many remarkable humans who helped to transform the former Alberta Lodge into the lasting treasure it has now become for the Portland community. And so it was, that on October 24, 2015 we decked-out our 1924 building: and it was the "cat’s pajamas" as we reveled in a jazzy & joyful shindig. Everyone thrilled to the song stylings of The Shanghai Woolies, and delighted in the exclusive West Coast premiere of Charles Addams: Family and Friends featuring 52 original pen & ink illustrations by the famed New Yorker cartoonist.
