Banner Project support deserves thanks

We would to express our gratitude to the city of Scappoose and the City Council for their generous support of the Columbia River Communities Banner Project. We realize and are truly supportive of the many needy and worthy causes during this time of economic difficulty, so the support of the city of Scappoose for our cause is especially appreciated.

The Highway 30 Banner Project will start with Scappoose, the 'Gateway to Columbia County,' and stretch to Clatskanie, creating a strong, visual message that will say, 'Welcome. Please come. Enjoy. And return. We have a lot to offer in Columbia County,' while also beautifying our daily commute by replacing old, weathered banners along Highway 30 and adding new, more colorful ones.

We look forward to the support of other communities along Highway 30 participating in this project.

It will create an unifying theme all along the Columbia County river communities while at the same time illustrating the distinctive, individual differences of each community.
