Week of June 22nd

I learned about Pickathon this week at a Clackamas County dinner event at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley. Pickathon is a music fest with 7 stages and a crowd of 3,500 (plus 2,500 volunteers) on July 31-August 3 at the farm — 16581 SE Hagen Rd. It’s sounds really fun, with an assortment of interesting, edgy musicians of different genres. And people even bring their kids! Moreover, it’s very eco-friendly with no disposable plastics used on site.

My kids and I caught the tail end of the retirement party for Connie Doyon Friday afternoon at the Library. We missed the song and dance act of the pictured library staff below though–darn it. Thank you for your many years of service in Canby, Connie!

The Canby School District issued a press release this week: There will be NO change to school start and end times for the 2015-2016 school year. The district will continue to explore and study what is best for students overall with regard to start and end times. A decision will not be finalized until more input is received from parents and staff.

The Arts & Culture Advisory Council of Canby will unveil three new sculptures on NW 1st Avenue soon.

The unveiling will occur on Friday, July 3rd at 6:00pm. The artists will be on hand to discuss their work and the process involved in creating these beautiful sculptures.

Everyone is welcome to join.
