Have cinnamon cookie, will travel.

The Odell Lionesses Club hits the sidewalks for the 15th annual “Walking Bake Sale” Saturday in downtown Hood River.

Starting at 10:30 a.m., 12 or so Lionesses will walk Oak Street, singing carols and offering bags of fresh-baked cookies.

The Lionesses will accept donations for the cookies, and sing on the streets and inside businesses, starting with At Home on Oak Street, and heading west up one side, and east down the other.

“Walk, sing and sell,” is how Lioness Jan Tatyrek put it.

All proceeds will go to helping fund the numerous community groups supported by Lionesses throughout the year:

Upper Valley Project Graduation, Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Fund, Gales Creek Camp for children with diabetes, Promoting Responsible Ownership of Dogs (PROD), Opportunity Connections, Start Making A Reader Today (SMART), Baby Book Bags (Mid Valley School), Hood River Christmas Project, 4-H Summer School, Camp Talaoli for hearing-impaired children, Dogs for the Deaf, Leader Dogs for the Blind, Lions Project Canine Companions, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Pregnancy Resource Center, and scholarships for high school senior girls.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
