Sutherlin Drug… Surprise Party this Sunday

This information from Rick DeYoung…
Sutherlin Drug has been sold by Ian and Judy Black. Community members are planning a surprise reception to celebrate their retirement next Sunday, May 20, 2018 at the Sutherlin Community Center, from 2 to 5 p.m. This is a secret event and no further details were available at press time. More information will be available at next Friday’s friendship hour.

Considering this is a surprise I was concerned about putting this info on the website. But, at Rick’s urging, and knowing you’ll handle the information with the utmost care, I’m posting it with my fingers crossed.

Volunteers needed to clean clubhouse big room Friday, May 25, 8:30 a.m.

There has been a few repairs and installation projects the past couple of weeks in the main room of the Clubhouse resulting in layers of dust covering the floor, tables and exercise equipment.

If a small group of willing volunteers showed up on Friday, May 25, at 8:30 a.m., to help Jimmy Smith (# 197) , it should take less than an hour to sweep, dust, mop and clean windows. Cookies for the worker bees.

WHY: It’s dirty … and on Saturday, May 26, at 4 p.m.,  the Park is hosting The Band Wanted, aka Joshua and Candy Carpenter, fulltime Escapees, who will be performing in the Big Room. Then, the following Saturday, June 2, Jacks and Jills will be setting up its tables in the Clubhouse for the Annual Yard Sale.

Big turn out to hear Debbie Hamilton give an ‘Update on developments in Sutherlin’

More than 40 Timber Valley RV Park leaseholders and a few visitors turned out on Friday, 5/11, afternoon to hear Debbie Hamilton, Sutherlin’s community outreach director, give an update on a number of activities and developments happening in our area.

Debbie reports that hanging flower baskets will return with the new light poles on Central in early June.

The road construction on Central Avenue is due to begin in late July and be completed by Blackberry Festival in August. According to plans, most of the work will be completed at night, for less traffic problems during daytime hours.

Waste water treatment plant construction begins this summer. (Pre-construction meeting is May 16, 10 a.m., Community Center Meeting Room.) Design planning for the widening of Valentine Street is set to happen soon with work to start in May 2019.

Biggest news was the potential development of Oregon Only Resort on 90-acres off I-5 exit 135. Plans include a hotel, conference center, amusement park, shopping village and interpretative museum. Looking at a 2021 completion target.

If you missed the update, go to City of Sutherlin website … and check out the newsletter  in upper right.
