We all know the big kids get to graduate on June 6 (HRVHS) and June 7 (Horizon Christian School).
But for kids throughout Hood River County, the last two weeks of the school year bring plenty of activities, some of them fun, some of them marking the conclusion of the year, and the act of moving on. Most of these events are limited to students and families, but most evening concerts, and the board meeting May 28, are events open to the public.

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
