Our Community Event 9-4 Saturday
The 12th annual Our Community Event – Faith in Action will be held in Sahalee Park from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, Saturday, Aug. 3.
The event, organized by Gary Buss, is put on by different churches in Madras and intended to give back to the community by providing fun and services to community members for free.
This year's event will feature kids' activities, some health care services, food, entertainment and other services, as well.
The kids will be able to enjoy large inflatable play structures, crafts and games during the event and live music throughout the event. Community members will have the opportunity to receive medical and dental services at the event, along with vision and hearing screenings.
The event also features free food and drinks, as well as opportunities for free family photos, clothes, haircuts, bicycle maintenance, auto services and veterinary services.
To donate clothing for the free clothing booth at the event, you can either drop off donations at LINC, at 278 SE Eighth St., leading up to the event or drop them off at Sahalee Park while the crew is setting up on Friday.
