As of Tuesday, April 8, 2014
Hello again! I would like to welcome many of our new neighbors. There have been some changes in the area so hopefully we can all get to know each other soon.
Dollie Rasmussen has asked me to let everyone know or remind them of the upcoming open house and bake sale on Saturday, April 19, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Historic Pine Grove Methodist Church.
The church is located on the Blossom route on Eastside Road right past the Pine Grove Elementary School. If we are lucky with Mother Nature we hope there will be many beautiful blossoms to see.
The sale is one day only as Easter is the next day. Many ask why was the blossom festival scheduled the same weekend but it is scheduled very far in advance and is always the third weekend of April.
The bake sale funds received will all go to benefit the Meals on Wheels program at Hood River Valley Adult Center. Both Dollie and Lynn have supported the program many years and deliver too!
There will be many handcrafted items and “vintage treasures” for sale in the lower reception room of the church. I got a preview and saw many beautiful glass items, china, and green Depression glass pieces.
The Head Start program was housed at the Pine Grove Church for many years and has recently located to an area closer to town. So the church is looking to rent office space and or exercise programs, etc., at the church. There is great storage space if you did rent an office.
We hope you can visit the church, see the new paint and preview the spaces. The church is also still available for church weddings, receptions, memorials, etc. Church services are held every Sunday in June, July and August beginning at 10 a.m. Pine Grove also holds Palm Sunday, and Christmas Eve twilight services.
Odell Methodist Church in Odell is available for rentals and you can contact Evie Hasty at 541-354-2657. Odell Methodist has a commercial kitchen for rent along with other spaces.
The Pine Grove Church has email of pinegrovechurch1907.com and also a Facebook page: search Facebook for Pine Grove Methodist Church, Hood River. Feel free to comment if you know about the church or have any questions.
