Portlandia Club Luncheon February 2019

Debbie Wooten, motivational speaker & comedian

Debbie Wooten's story is a vision of how the human spirit can prevail. Debbie entered a world of poverty, racism, abuse and family suicide. But, after years of struggle and barriers that for most of us would be too daunting, Debbie succeeded in becoming a highly requested motivation speaker and comedian. Debbie's comedy and speaking career began with a local Toastmasters group in Tacoma, WA. In 1989, She was chosen as the national winner of a Toastmaster's speaking context and competed for the International award in Portland, Oregon. In 2014, Debbie was the keynote speaker in Taipei, Taiwan for 5,ooo participants from around the world!

Debbie will share her story, with honesty, insight and, of course, humor! It's sure to be a wonderful event!

With the new year, we have a new location for our monthly luncheons. We will meet at the Girl Scouts of Oregon office building at 9620 SW Barbur Boulevard, beginning with our January 10 luncheon. It's a lovely space, with a wall of windows, easy parking and removed from the downtown bustle.

With the venue change, we will have a catered box lunch available for order at registration. Lunches must be paid for at time of registration. (Lunches cannot be paid for at the door.) Non-members who are interested in the program only, no lunch, may pay at the door. Please note your choice of box lunch during online registration, ahead of the event. Box Lunch choices are indicated in the menu section.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Cancellations: If the registrar receives a cancellation notice (via email to info@portlandia.org) from someone who has prepaid, by 5:00 pm on the Wednesday before the luncheon, the individual has two options. Option choice must be communicated to the registrar at the time of the cancellation:

  1. A credit will be held and applied to the following month’s lunch, but will not be held longer.  The credit must be used by the original payee and cannot be passed on to another person.  This will be tracked by the registrar and reported to the Treasurer.
  2. A refund can be obtained through Paypal.

No Shows: For those who have not provided the appropriate advance notice of non-attendance and who have paid in advance, they will lose the payment funds because lunch or beverage was ordered in advance and Portlandia Club still pays for the ordered meal or beverages for no shows.


Bookings are closed for this event.
