Ferry items are being sought

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Canby Ferry, the city of Canby and Clackamas County are looking for help to honor the ferry, which has been around in one form or another since 1914.

Celebration organizers are looking for old and new photos of the ferry, the older the better.

The photos can be dropped off at the Canby Area Chamber of Commerce at 191 SE Second Ave. or at the Canby Herald, 241 N. Grant St. both in Canby, or by calling Learfield at 503-650-3253.

Another need is to find someone willing to donate one of the Canby chamber’s 2009 geocoins which depicted the modern day ferry.

They are all gone now and organizers want to put both the old and new geocoins on a plaque aboard the M.J. Lee, Learfield said.

Anyone willing to donate a 2009 geocoin should call Learfield at 503-650-3253.

The ferry anniversary committee also hopes to commemorate the Canby Ferry during the 2014 Clackamas County Fair.
