Workshop offered on grant writing

The Hood River County Faith Connection is partnering with Paul Lindberg, of Hat Creek Consulting, to present a series of workshops that focus on grant writing, foundations and the grant process.

The second session, entitled “Letters of Inquiry,” will be held Tuesday, Feb. 26, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hood River County Administration Building at 601 State St., in the first-floor conference room. Cost is $30 per person without lunch; add $5 to include lunch.

In this session attendees will learn about the first steps in contacting potential funders, otherwise known as the letter of inquiry or letter of interest.


Learn about grant writing Feb. 26 at 11 a.m. at the County Building, Sixth and State streets.

Lindberg will discuss the different types of letters, focusing on both the content and form of the letter, and participants will draft a letter to a potential funder.

For more information, contact Paul Lindberg at or Kathy Smith at

The workshop is open to everyone. Lindberg notes that “if you are new to grant writing; an experienced grant writer who still has questions; an executive director who wants or needs to write grants; or if you have questions about contacting new sources of support for your programs; this workshop is for you.”

Members of the Faith Connections Coalition, Hood River County Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Prevention Coalition or the Hood River County Commission on Children and Families may receive this training at no charge, but must register so the organization will know how many will be attending.

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
