Do you have a great art display or show you’d like to produce? Maybe you want to preserve or highlight some fascinating part of Hood River County’s cultural heritage? Or perhaps you’d like to invite a fascinating author or historian to the area to help people learn more about literature or the humanities?
The Hood River Cultural Trust is accepting applications for its 2013 grant cycle through Oct. 1.
HRCT is an organization dedicated to maintaining and preserving cultural expression throughout Hood River County. It is a part of the Oregon Cultural Trust, an organization created to help provide a permanent funding structure and grant program for artistic and cultural endeavors around the state.
This year, HRCT will have approximately $7,500 to distribute in grants. Many organizations and projects have received funding through HRCT’s grant program including the CGCC Spring Humanities Series, Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association, The History Museum and many more.
Individuals and organizations of all types are eligible for grants for projects that largely benefit Hood River County residents. Applications and grant guidelines are available at hoodriverculturaltrust.org.

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
