The Hood River County Library — and its branches in Parkdale and Cascade Locks — have a variety of classes, crafts and reading programs for the whole family to enjoy this summer.
The Fourth of July holiday will limit access to several Port of Hood River waterfront properties beginning Friday, July 3 when the Hood River Eye Openers Lions Club begins setting up its fireworks display just west of the mouth of the Hood River.
The 2015 Hood River County Fair takes place Wednesday through Saturday, July 22-25, at the Hood River County Fairgrounds, 3020 Wy’east Road, south of Hood River near the community of Odell.
I know it’s been a few months (or six), but rest assured, the Odell community column really does still exist. Grab your calendar — there’s a lot going on in our little community over the next few weeks.
There’s no need to wonder what you are going to do with your summer in the Upper Valley. With all the events going on, you’ll need to get out your calendar and write them in so you don’t miss anything!
