  • Save the Date: 6th Annual Jane Barnes Revue, Saturday April 2

    This topsy-turvy fashion show features some of Astoria's finest men donning big wigs and beautiful dresses to cavort down a 24-foot catwalk, as one of ADHDA's largest fundraising events.

    Originally meant to celebrate Jane Barnes, the first European woman of Astoria, as part Astoria’s bicentennial celebrations in 2011, the Jane Barnes Revue has become a delightful and hilarious evening of “Gentlemen Janes” divulging their feminine side while raising money for a great organization. 

  • Celebrating Volunteers with Appreciation Night and Awards Ceremony

    On Jan. 28, members and volunteers of the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) met at Buoy Beer Co. to honor and celebrate the volunteer spirit of downtown Astoria with its 4th Annual Volunteer Appreciation Night and Awards Ceremony. 

     

    ADHDA’s awards and accomplishments of 2015 were made possible by the dedication of its volunteers, particularly the 45 volunteers who give monthly as members on the board and committees.  With new projects, fundraising events, and abundant activities, ADHDA’s Organization Committee hosts an Annual Appreciation Night and Awards Ceremony to thank the numerous volunteers, who collectively gave more than 2,700 hours to ADHDA last year.
