Thanks offered for help with local planting
To the editor:
Thank you thank you for making our rose planting so enjoyable and productive. The huge donation of flower bulbs from Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm and the delivery of them by our dear friend Mallory was wonderful.
The phenomenal work of the Canby firefighters getting the holes dug and planting everything.
The fantastic work of the Scouts, especially Troop 505 and their fearless leaders helping us with everything.
Plus, the cleanup afterwards by the Cty of Canby Public Works Department hauling the brush away that Tom and Karen had cut.
Even the Canby Police sent an officer to help us with safety along that busy highway.
Also, a huge thank you to the Furniture Outlet store and Mike Kwok for allowing us a place to park, electricity for cooking, bathroom facilities and cardboard for our rose beds down the road when we can secure donations to finance the bark dust needed to finish the job.
There's only about five more miles of highway 99E to landscape. The Canby Garden Club, with the help of local businesses, plan to tackle a needed area each year and hope to call on each of you again.
We could not have accomplished this without you. Again, thanks to all of you.

Rumors are wrong, Post 122 is still here
To the editor:
There have been some rumors floating around and I would like to set the record straight. The American Legion Post 122 here in Canby is not closed. We are not disbanding, nor are we selling our building we are in.
The American Legion did close the lounge for a couple of weeks, so we could clean it up, restock and staff with all volunteers. We have adjusted our hours for the time being. Friday and Saturdays from 4 to 10 p.m.
Our fundraisers are still going strong. Thursday night bingo, Friday night hamburger feed, Saturday night dinners, Sunday breakfast and our Christmas tree sales. The proceeds of whicih all go to fund our programs of helping veterans in need, community and children. All of which is what the American Legion is all about.
We are still looking for members. If you are, or know a veterans who served in time of conflict, please come and check us out. We meet the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30 p.m.
So, we are not gone, we are still here, we are not going anywhere. Come in for our events and see for yourself, just don't listen to the rumors.
Steve Renhard, commander
American Legion Post 122
