2018 Friends THEME: “Pursuing Passionate Purpose"
Our theme this year is “Pursuing Passionate Purpose.” We were inspired by the life and legacy of Bill Porter (1932-2013)--a Portlander who experienced cerebral palsy. He was an award-winning salesman, son, and friend… and an accidental icon.
Despite being told he was unemployable, Bill was one of The Watkin’s Company’s most successful door-to-door salesman. Bill’s determination to just go to work, pay his bills, and take care of his family caught the attention of a writer at The Oregonian. Next, he appeared on ABC’s 20/20 and TNT released a made for television movie about him (Door to Door).
We will also be sharing other stories of people in our community who are passionately pursuing their purpose.
