The Friends of the Grande Ronde Valley want to thank all of the people
who attended our presentation of the “Reality of Wind Power.’’ For
those who did not attend, please go to www.granderonde.tv where you can
see the PowerPoint presentation and the question and answer session.
Father’s Day, a day we dedicate to our fathers. A time to remember all
that they have done for us. For some, it is a sad day. Not all fathers
are wonderful, caring and loving. I had one of those. I lived in
constant fear that I would not live up to his expectations and would
suffer for it.
As I sit at my desk composing this letter, a neighbor is spreading rock
on the top of his levy, to raise the elevation, in hopes of keeping the
Grande Ronde River from going out of its banks and destroying his crops
and possibly the crops on adjoining property.
First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in La Grande is
celebrating 10 years of doing the mission project “Paint the Town.”
The idea came from watching news coverage of Paint the Town projects
happening in bigger cities. We believed there would be those in La
Grande who could use a helping hand in getting their homes painted.
