Only horse owners know the real cost of managing an expensive hobby on private property. The dollars, hours, and energy invested into our companions sometimes creates havoc on the landscape. Because partners around Molalla care about healthy creeks and rivers, the Pudding River Watershed Council and the Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District have invited Alayne Blickle, an expert horse manager who has more than 20 years of experience to present a workshop on May 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Molalla Adult Center.  "Pasture Management, Track Paddocks & Fire wise for Horse Owners" will have both a classroom session and a field tour. The $10 cost of the class covers lunch. Register online here: , or contact Lisa Kilders at the Clackamas SWCD at 503-210-6002 or by email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Attention artists of all ages! Molalla High School's annual art show will be held this year on May 16 from 5-7 p.m. in the high school commons. For this year's show, we not only want to highlight the artistic talents of MHS students, but also the creative skills of Molalla community members. All forms of art are welcome!

In the past weeks the Colton volunteer firefighters have responded to some tough calls, situations that take a toll on each and every one of them. Support from the fire department family and community helps the firefighters/EMTs continue with their call to serve. One way to help ensure the firefighters have what they need for the jobs they are called to perform and to continue in community support is by donating and attending their annual auction on Saturday, May 19.

They are now accepting donations at the main fire station, 20987 South Highway 211, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or call 503-824-2545 to arrange a pickup. This year they will not be accepting work-out equipment, mattresses, large musical instruments or large televisions as they usually don't sell and there is a cost to dispose of them.
