Thanks offered for help with Halloween event
To the editor:
Thankful for another successful year for Canby's Halloween Journey. We had approximately 90 kids who helped by playing a character, assisted with pumpkin or face painting and assisting with the games and helping with photo opportunities.
We also had about 60 adults that helped with food, money takers, building, advertising, sewing, and costume changes. It takes a lot of time and materials to make this event happen. Thanks to businesses that gave money or materials. I hope that those who came enjoyed this event and a big thank you for all that helped, for without you this would not take place.
We took in five barrels of food and $2,405 to be divided by Kiwanis and The Canby Center. My you all have a blessed holiday season.
Make a difference during the holiday season
To the editor:
The holiday season is coming fast and I thought I'd take a moment to encourage people to not only take in the many things that Canby will have to offer and enjoy this year, but to be generous to the many fundraising events that will come up.
From Christmas bazaars to the annual food and toy drive in Canby, there will be a lot of very cool ways to help make this year's holidays that much brighter.
The cans of food or the new toy or the few dollars you toss in the pot are a wonderful way to make Christmas that much better for those in our area that may need a little help.
We truly have so much and I think the chance to share with others, even if it's just a little bit, is one of the things that makes Canby so special. So, while we're all running around getting ready for Christmas and Thanksgiving, take a moment to donate to the special events that will be coming up over the next five or so weeks. You really do make a difference in people's lives.
