School district thanks community for October gifts
Molalla's school board decided in October to thank the businesses and organizations that gave gifts to the school district.
Superintendent Tony Mann brought the idea to the board, noting that the board's policy states that all major gifts will be reported and publicly announced, but suggested "major" is not defined.
To play it safe, the board voted to formally thank the donors.
October donations are listed here:
-$400 to MHS for volleyball from MHS Boosters
-$500 to MHS for athletic department from Robinson Chiropractic
-$200 to MHS for athletic department from Patty Salazar, parent

Molalla Communications' total gifts amounted to $22,550.
Board member Craig Loughridge took a moment to acknowledge the community's generosity.
"I just wanted to say how grateful that I personally am that there are people and organizations that are willing to make these kinds of contributions," Loughridge said. "I'm grateful for every single contribution on there, though I think it is worth to note that Molalla Communications has long been a great partner in this community and what I see as I'm going down this list is 'Molalla Communications' a lot. So I just want to kind of give a shout-out to Molalla Communications."
