I don't know anything about the community in your area, and a quick search on islamicfinder.org didn't turn anything up either. I did go through cities down to Portland, and it looks like there are some islamic associations in Vancouver WA

I guess Portland is an hour away, but on the weekends, it might be good to drive down and have iftar/pray taraweeh at a masjid there.

Go through the list, call em up and see what they're doing during Ramadan. Iftar is the meal that breaks the fast, and oftentimes masjids will host free meals. After Isha, the community gathers to pray a special night prayer called taraweeh. There's usually some social time inbetween iftar and taraweeh, so you'd be able to meet people and chat then.

Other things I dug up that may be useful:

This is not specifically Muslim, but he can find and e-mail other local Moroccans here:

www.wafin.com

Up at the top, there's a search box, "find a Moroccan." You can put your city name or other keyword there. Nothing came up under Longview, but several came up under Portland. It lists the city in Morocco where each person is from. Someone reasonably close to you might be able to put him in touch with someone closer.

There's a relatively good sized community of Muslim's in Beaverton, which isn't exactly close, but if you contact the Balil Mosque, I'm sure they will help you out. They've been very kind and helpful to me in trying to learn more about my husbands religion.
