Thelmas Place offers thanks for local support
To the editor:
Thelma's Place would like to thank the community for supporting our hanging basket sale.
We still have a few plants left to sell, but it was the best year yet for this local nonprofit organization. Having this annual fundraiser helps us to make a difference in the lives of people living with memory loss by providing a respite program for their caregivers.
We could not do it without the support of businesses and individuals in and around Canby.
Call 503-266-5100 for more information.

People were disrespectful at this years CHS graduation
To the editor:
First off I would like to congratulate the 2014 Canby graduates. You have accomplished a great milestone in your life and you deserved to be recognized. What I saw at this years graduation was a backyard party.
There were people holding conversations in which you could not hear speeches nor the graduates name, and children running around. I also saw people get up and start to leave once their family members name was called.
When I graduated, there was respect given to the graduates. What I saw Friday night was total disrespect to the graduates and to the families and friends that came to watch. Canby parents, family and friends, of which I am talking about, you should be ashamed of yourself. I hope that the disrespectful people stay home for next years graduation.
