Troop 208 crunches trees

With the passing of the holidays, Troop 208 Boy Scouts will be busy helping the community to recycle their trees through our annual Tree Recycling Crunch. Troop 208 Boy Scouts will be delivering flyers at homes in the Cedar Mill and Bethany neighborhoods this Saturday December 13, 2008. 

On January 3, 2009, we will be going through the neighborhoods picking up trees. Just tie the envelope attached to the flyer with a donation onto the tree and leave your tree at the end of the driveway. We will be happy to pick it up. If you would rather deliver the tree, come by our dumpster station on January 3 located at the Stoller Middle School parking lot. Contact our dispatch on Tree Recyling Day for personal pickup at 503-758-3314.

Your supporting dollars through our tree recycling service provides boys in the Cedar Mill and Beaverton areas with a wonderful outdoor program for developing character and great citizenship while instilling strong values. For more information, contact Scoutmaster Curtis Lipski at scouterlipski@gmail.com

Legislative town hall on identity theft

December 8, 5:30-7:30 pm
Cedar Mill Library

Every year, thousands of Oregonians are victims of identity theft. In 2007, the Oregon Legislature passed the Oregon Consumer Identity Theft Protection Act, which gives consumers more protections and rights and requires businesses to take certain steps to protect personal information.

On Monday December 8, 2008, State Senator Suzanne Bonamici will hold a town hall meeting about identity theft with experts from the Department of Consumer and Business Services.

Part 1, from 5:30-6:30, will focus on tools for businesses and will include information about document security and data breach notification requirements.

Part 2, from 6:30-7:30, will focus on tools for consumers, including how to keep your credit secure and how to put a freeze on your credit report.

Please feel free to attend either or both sessions. Bring a friend and your questions!
