Oak Grove Park received a generous amount of TLC last week, when volunteers of all ages from the community, Friends of Oak Grove and the Insitu Volunteer Committee got together to complete a wide variety of tasks in the park. Friends of Oak Grove would like to thank: Volunteers for their hard work; Mikel Diwan of Hood River County Public Works for support; Hood River Supply for donating painting supplies and drill bits; Arborists Ryan Cafferty and Chris Baker for their work and advice; Dirt Hugger for donating clean dirt; Neal Creak Forest Products for providing cedar wood chips for the playground; an anonymous donation of sand; Tum-a-Lum for donating posts to make new stairs; Brent Foster for donating rebar for the stairs; Hood River Handball Association for striping fresh lines on the handball courts; and West Side Fire Department for power washing the tennis courts.
This year our dine and drink business locations throughout the Gorge have suffered with closures. You can help support your favorites by purchasing take out and gift cards. Many of these business will offer curb-side delivery and some will deliver to your home. Let’s keep the Gorge going strong!
