Isa’s Auto Service moving to Oregon City

Isa’s Auto Service, located at 22250 Willamette Drive, will be moving to 1128 Main St., Oregon City, effective Sept. 1.

The service has been at its West Linn location for the past 21 years, but a loss of lease forced the move across the river to downtown Oregon City. Isa’s Auto Service will inhabit the old Weiler Chevrolet building — most recently Ming’s Auto Repair — on Main Street.

The phone number and email for Isa’s Auto repair will remain the same.

WLACC seeks volunteer bus driver

The West Linn Adult Community Center is looking for a volunteer bus driver with a current commerical driver’s license to drive its 18-passenger bus that takes members on daytime trips several times a month.

At times it involves just a few hours, while other trips last most of the day.

The community center has several drivers that it rotates through, so it is not a significant time commitment.

Anyone interested in this volunteer position should contact the West Linn Adult Community Center at 503-557-4704.
