A memorable ‘Tree of Remembrance’

Julie Raefield-Gobbo, director of Providence Foundation, writes:

“To Jack Trumbull and the Tree of Remembrance Team:

“What a wonderful evening last night (Dec. 12). I felt honored to be there and share in the moving reflections and respect offered to families and their lost loved ones. Thank you for making this available in our community. We are all made better as a result. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”

Tree of Remembrance is a community event held each year at Anderson’s Tribute Center, involving prayer, music and a dedicated Christmas tree with special ornaments for people to leave messages and mementos to honor loved ones.

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
