Register for LO Chamber's Golf Classic
The Lake Oswego Chamber of Commerce annual Golf Classic is now taking registrations for singles and foursomes to play at the Oswego Lake Country Club on Monday, July 22, 2019. This year's beneficiary is the LO Meals on Wheels program. There is a reduced rate for registrants by Monday, April 15 (www.lake-oswego.com).
"This is one of the rare opportunities to play at Oswego Lake Country Club if you are not a member while supporting your local Chamber and LO Meals on Wheels," explained Chamber CEO Keith Dickerson. The Chamber of Commerce represents local businesses and brings them together with government and community programs.
Madonna Suever of Extra Touch Events is this year's co-chair. She assisted with the tournament last year. "This isn't just another golf tournament. Playing in the Lake Oswego Classic at OLCC you can expect an experience. Every year our golf event creates memories that bring the players back."
HomeStreet Bank has been the title sponsor for the past five years. Brad Holland, district manager of HomeStreet says "we support this event because it is a fun day bringing people together, but it also supports local community efforts." Past beneficiaries have included the Lake Oswego Schools Foundation and the Veterans Memorial (which will be dedicated Memorial Day weekend this year).
To register for 18 holes of golf (including grab-n-go breakfast, awards luncheon, prizes and fabulous golf), go to www.lake-oswego.com and click on the golf tournament or call the Chamber at 503-636-3634.

Lake Oswego Police continuing focused
Police in the City of Lake Oswego have continued to participate in focused DUII enforcement efforts as part of regular duty patrols. During the month of March 2019, Lake Oswego Police arrested three drivers for DUII-alcohol and one driver for DUII-controlled substances.
The enforcement was conducted as part of regular duty patrols.
The Lake Oswego Police Department asks that you stay safe, take care of your friends and family, find a designated driver if needed and keep others from driving if they appear impaired. Please act responsibly and drive sober.
Lake Oswego Police Department and Oregon Impact partner for high visibility DUII enforcement
The Lake Oswego Police Department has worked in partnership with Oregon Impact to participate in high visibility enforcement DUII details with other law enforcement agencies from across the nation during various dates in 2018 and 2019. These special details have the focus of reducing the number of impaired drivers on the roads. The most recent focused High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) campaign was held St. Patrick's Day, Sunday March 17, 2019. The next campaign will be on 4-20 Day.
A driver can be impaired by a number of intoxicants to include alcohol, illicit drugs and prescription medication. If a driver is arrested for DUII, they can be subject to a number of monetary fines, have their license suspended and spend time in jail.
We encourage those drivers that are in a position that would preclude them from being behind the wheel safely to use a designated driver, use a ride sharing service or a taxi service.
The Lake Oswego Police Department asks that you stay safe, take care of your friends and family and to please act responsibly and drive sober.
