The Friends of Multnomah Falls is Non-Profit, Volunteer Organization
The 100th Anniversary of the Dedication of the Historic Columbia River Highway held at Multnomah Falls on June 7th, 2016. The event began with an amazing blessing chant with Chief Delvis Heath, Sr. and Jefferson Greebe, members of the Confederated Tribe of Warm Springs. Former Governors Ted Kulongowski and Barbara Roberts gave inspiring speeches, a six member Centennial Chorus was led by Teresa Kasner to sing the National Anthem - all members of Portland area chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Five local girls representing the Corbett area in white lace dresses carried baskets of rose petals and threw them out to lead in the Queen of Rosaria, accompanied by 30 Royal Rosarians. Local musician Thomas Lauderdale (of Portland band "Pink Martini" played "Roll On Columbia" on a beautiful grand piano in front of Multnomah Falls while the DAR Centennial Chorus sang with him. It was a magical and special day.
