Oregon City encourages virtual participation in events
Consistent with the governor's executive order and guidance from the Oregon Health Authority, Oregon City has canceled its series of concerts and movies in city parks.
Oregon City is encouraging virtual participation in events through various initatives, including celebration of National Historic Preservation Month via a Preserve Our Past: Art and Poetry Contest. Youth ages 11-16 can enter this contest and potentially win $150. Submissions are due by May 31 at bit.ly/ocartandpoetry.
Oregon City officials are asking the public to participate in a national campaign celebrating meaningful places by taking photos with a "This Place Matters" placard and uploading them using the hashtag: #thisplacemattersoregoncity.
Recordings are being created for Oregon City's Memorial Day Service on May 25, its Touch a Truck event on June 8, and the Library Summer Concert series through Aug. 12.
These events will become part of repositories that Oregon City staff have collected of stay-at-home resources for the whole family at orcity.org/library/oregon-city-library-online and orcity.org/parksandrecreation/virtual-recreation
