‘Chair Affair’ raises $14,000

Megan Spears of the Westside PTO writes: “Westside’s Chair Affair: Oh, My Word! Reflecting back over the last three years, I have to say that the Chair Affair event is getting better and better. More of our Westside community attended this year than ever before; the night was a wonderful opportunity to connect with some friends and meet some new!

“The food was tremendous and the band was super fun. The art created this year by the children was beautiful. We met our goal of $14,000.

“Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket, made a donation, bought some art, helped with the kids in class, worked on the committee, donated food or services, and those who helped in any other fashion.

Special thanks to Principal Bill Newton for doing some push-ups at the event (very entertaining!).

“The Chair Affair committee created 2014 calendars chock-full of photos of the kids and the art created this year.

There will be a copy at the school’s front office for viewing. If you would like to place an order, email Tara Henderson at tara@thehendoinc.com. The cost is $25.”

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
