Installations will take place from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Oct. 12-Oct. 16 at two locations: the bridge next to the intersection of Foster Road and Troge Road and the curve north of the intersection of Foster Road and Winston Road.

Foster Road will be reduced by one lane during the work, and flaggers will guide drivers.

Neighbors raising funds for Stafford Stone

The First Addition/Forest Hills Neighborhood Association is hoping to raise $5,000 to partner with the City of Lake Oswego to fund the final Stafford Standing Stone that will be placed in Stafford Grove Park.

The 12-foot-tall, polished standing stone will be set in its base on Oct. 14 in the small park at 1061 Sunningdale Road, just across the street from the Stafford family’s former home. When fundraising is complete, the stone will be engraved with William Stafford’s poem, “With Neighbors One Afternoon.”

Carole Ockert, the neighborhood association’s chairwoman, says tax-deductible contributions of $250 and above are suggested. Checks should be made payable to The Friends of William Stafford and include “for the Stafford Grove Stone” in the notes field.
