The Hood River Valley High School Class of 1973 recently had its 40-year reunion. Things were marvelous. Dinner Saturday night was especially fun and fabulous! Thank you to all the many who attended and to those who helped put this together.
But — some things went missing — please help us find them:
A number of poster boards are gone from Divots on the night of Aug. 17. These have newspaper clippings from the time of our high schools days and pictures of our classmates who have already passed on.
Anyone knowing anything about these boards, please send an email to email@example.com. Thank you!

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
