Empower Up's one-day Sell-A-Bration event

You can support your neighborhood electronics recycling and job-skills training program, Empower Up, on Saturday, October 25 from 10AM to 5PM at 3206 NE 52nd Street, the corner of 52nd and St. Johns, in Vancouver.  During the one-day Sell-A-Bration, Empower Up will be offering great deals on refurbished laptop and desktop computers, computer monitors, and flat panel televisions in the store.  If you need that extra phone charger or a stereo for your basement, you can find a deal at Empower Up on the 25th. Come, see, and buy the as-is treasures stored on the “wall-O-stuff.”  If you get hungry, the Esoteric BBQ and the Wiener Wagon food trucks will be there to help you.  Also, Empower Up will be holding a raffle for exciting prizes. 

Empower Up is a non-profit organization with the mission of protecting the environment and building community by offering positive options for people and electronics.  Empower Up’s primary funding comes from the refurbishing and sale of computers and laptops donated by community members and organizations. In 2013 Empower Up diverted 148 tons of electronic waste from landfills.  Through our repurposing and recycling mission, Empower Up provides growth opportunities through job-skills training and entry-level job experience.

The Investigation (Play) at Evergreen High School

The Investigation is a dramatic reconstruction of the Frankfurt War Crimes trials, based on the actual evidence given. This testimony, concerning Auschwitz and the atrocities which were enacted there, has been edited and extracted by Peter Weiss into a dramatic document that relies solely and completely on the facts for its effectiveness. Nameless witnesses stand and recall their appalling memories of Auschwitz, allowing us to bear witness to their painful and painstaking search for truth and, ultimately, justice. What emerges is a chastening and purging documentary of deeply moving power.

Show Dates: November 6, 7, 8, 14 and 15. All shows at 7pm
Location:      Evergreen High School Auditorium
                   14300 NE 18th St. Vancouver, WA 98684
