The Lansing Journal journeys: Port of Portland


submitted by Denise Jones-Williams

Denise Jones-Williams and her husband, Sgt. Glenn Williams, are 11-year residents of Lansing. Denise serves on the District 158 School Board, and their children, Benjamin and Jubilee, attend Coolidge Elementary School. “We visited Portland, Oregon, for my sister’s wedding,” writes Denise. “When we saw the Veteran’s Memorial in the airport we thought it would make a great pic as it was Veterans Day! Pictured here are myself, Jubilee, Benjamin, and Glenn. My oldest daughter Trinity took the pic.”
