on Vortex I
I was a community college counselor at the time when the governor put out a call for volunteer counselors for Vortex. I had heard of it and my fellow counselors and I felt that Vortex was a good idea. We spent the day helping young people come down from bad drug trips sitting with them in the doctor's tent until we could be sure they would be OK. We walked the park looking for people who looked like they needed help. I have to confess that we also enjoyed the activities at the river and the music was wonderful. We had a great day out in the park. All was relatively peaceful. Law enforcement was helpful and low key. A good memory for me. I received a memory book--I think from the State of Oregon, to thank me for volunteering. aaray.
