Ninety One School Jog-A-Thon offers thanks for help

To the editor:

On behalf of the Ninety-One School PTO, I would like to say a huge thank you to our students, staff, families, and community for their generous support of our school’s Jog-A-Thon fundraiser.

This was a record-breaking year for us. The students raised more than $20,000, which will be used to fund many important programs and activities for Ninety-One students. We were blown away by the generosity of all who contributed to this grand total.

A big thank you also goes out to Top-O-Hill restaurant for donating so many breakfasts for our top-earning kids, and to Chariot Limousine, which accommodated all 47 of our students who earned the big prize: a limo ride out to breakfast with the principal. It is wonderful to be part of a community that puts so much value in its children’s education. Thank you so much.

Thanks offered for those who have helped stroke victim

To the editor:

I would like to express my deepest thanks to the community and the businesses in Canby. I have had two stokes in the last nine months and it has been difficult to function with my daily routines.

I would like to thank the people and businesses that go out of their way to help me get through the day. Specifically, I would like to thank Cutsforth’s, Key Bank, Parsons Canby Pharmacy, Dr. Hartwell, Canby Public Library, Canby Police and Solomon Jacobsen with the city. They all go the extra mile to help me in my condition.

I have lived in several cities in Oregon and I have never felt the warmth of a community like Canby. I feel grateful for their encouragement, and I would not be in a better place without their support. I am proud of this community and want to express my appreciation.
