Hood River Rotary Club will host its annual Rotary Ski Night Monday at Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort.
This evening is a fundraiser to generate funds for the club’s annual scholarship program that benefits students at Hood River Valley High School.
Cost is $10 for this major fundraiser for the Hood River Rotary’s community service projects. Tickets are good from 2-9 p.m.
Rotary officials said Mt. Hood Meadows has made a pledge to donate an additional $1 for every online ticket purchased in advance, up to $1,250.
This is a special fundraiser that requires the $10 lift ticket in order to ride lifts after the normal 4 p.m. operating schedule. Season pass holders, 10 Time Pass holders and other pre-purchased Meadows tickets are valid from normal lift scheduled opening times through 4 p.m.
If you want to board lifts after 4 p.m., you’ll be able to purchase the $10 lift ticket from Rotary, and support the fundraiser.

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
