Dogwood Stoplight is a go!

County Engineer Greg Miller confirmed that the county has reached a preliminary agreement with Bales/Findley Property Management to install a stoplight and crosswalk at Dogwood and Saltzman, in conjunction with a realignment of the entrances to the Thriftway lot. The details of the deal have not been finalized at this time. Public support for the stoplight was cited as one of the factors in changing the county position on the light.

Historical Cedar Mill photos return for Grange breakfast

If you missed the collection of historical Cedar Mill photos that was exhibited at the June Shortcake Social, they will be exhibited again on Saturday, August 30 for a breakfast raising funds for the regional Grange organization, the Washington-Yamhill Pomona. Breakfast will be served from 7:30-11:30 am at Cedar Mill’s Leedy Grange, 835 NW Saltzman on the east end of the Bales lot.

Grange members will be serving a delicious breakfast of biscuits with sausage gravy or French Toast with sausage, plus coffee and orange juice. Cost is $5 for adults, $3 for kids 12 and under.

The Washington-Yamhill Pomona coordinates activities among the dozens of “subordinate” or local Granges in the two counties, and participates in state-wide Grange activities. Leedy Grange, founded in 1903, is always seeking new members to help plan family activities and support our community.
