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.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
