Community Choir tunes up for season

Members of the community are invited to join Mid-Columbia Community Choir for its 22nd season.

“It’s that time of year when I begin contacting choir members, past and present, to come and join the choir for another great season of choral music,” said director Perry Cole of Hood River.

Diana Beterbide will again accompany on the piano.

“Her expertise on the piano as well as being a very attentive accompanist makes our rehearsals and concert something very special,” Cole said.

Venues will be a little different this year, performing at Riverside Community Church and White Salmon’s Henkle Middle School.

“Also we extend our thanks to the White Salmon SDA Church for opening their doors to us for rehearsals,” Cole said.

Members of the community who would like to receive a registration music order form and MCCC 2013 schedule for this year’s Thanksgiving and Christmas music season may contact Cole at 541-806-1395 or pcc@hrecn.net.

Plans are in place to again have the Riverside Community Church Choir join the chorale for the Hymns of Thanksgiving program.

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
