Leaders for Tomorrow, a youth program of the Hood River Chamber of Commerce, will be conducting a survey on behalf of the Hood River County Historical Museum on Saturday, Oct. 14. Leaders will be positioned in front of the county library, Rosauers and downtown.
The purpose of the survey is to provide the museum with feedback on its presence in the community and to provide input into future directions. This is a short survey and should only take a few minutes of your time.
Additionally, this is an opportunity for the Leader for Tomorrow to participate in a valuable community service. Please support the Leaders and the Museum by taking a few minutes to share your thoughts.
If you are unable to talk to one of the Leaders of Tomorrow and would like to complete a community survey, please feel free to contact the museum at 386-6772 and ask for Connie.
The Mt. Hood Towne Hall board of directors is looking for direction and advice from the community to help finalize its 3-5 year plan for continuing the renovation of the hall and deciding how the Towne Hall can best serve the area.
The board is conducting a survey that will help it to make these decisions. Listed on the survey form are past and present uses of the building, and ones that have been suggested or requested, and community members are asked to mark any or all that would be interesting or important to them. The form also asks for ideas and input about other uses not mentioned for the building.
The survey responses will also help with new grant applications by showing the grantors what the community wants from the building.
Please contact Revelyn Rawdin at 352-6022 or firstname.lastname@example.org to share your ideas or to request a survey form.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
