WAAAM celebrates history of the Chevrolet April 12

On the April 12 Second Saturday event, the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum will feature Chevrolets.

In addition to the regular flying and driving antiques, and other activities hosted during WAAAM’s Second Saturday events, the museum is trying to get a retrospective of Chevys so that visitors can see all of the changes that the Chevrolet car company has gone though over the years.

“We’re hoping to get a whole bunch of Chevys to come and help us show off history,” says Museum Director Judy Newman. “It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a 1913 Chevy, a 2014 Chevy, or something in between. Stop on by and show off your car.”

Last April the museum featured Studebakers. Nearly 40 managed to gather and participate in a Studebaker retrospective.

With 15 Chevys in the museum’s current inventory (1918 being the oldest), the turnout for the April 12 Chevy retrospective is already off to a great start.

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
