City Notes

BUS WRAP CONTEST — The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center is going for an image changer with its new Bus Wrap Contest. “We want to communicate what we’re about with a friendly, outgoing, cheerful-looking bus,” ACC manager Ann Adrian said. “That will be better for our environment than a standard white bus. We think we can represent ourselves in a better way.” The contest is open to all ages, from newborn infants to the oldest person in town. The prize is $100 in tuition money for classes at the ACC. For rules, regulations and entry forms, go to ci.oswego.or.us/acc/design-contest-wrap-acc-van-and-win.
