“Out of the Trap”

by Billy DeVasher

Tuesday, October 7, 2014


Please join us and meet Billy DeVasher, author of “Out of the Trap”.  What does a person do when he finds himself trapped in a situation from which there seems to be no escape?  This is what happened to Billy DeVasher…not just once but several times in his life.  There were several entrapments: a military one, an educational trap, a physical addiction, and a personality weakness called greed.  Billy DeVasher escaped them all and came through victorious.
Mr. DeVasher attended Portland High School and he lived in the Portland area for several years.
