ST. HELENS — Community Action Team will host a “Jail and Bail” benefit on June 19 in the Safeway parking lot on the corner of Highway 30 and Gable Road.
The event, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., features a mock jailhouse and presiding judge who will sentence participants to “do time” until a friend or family member can raise bail money for their release. Jailbirds will have their mug shots taken, and be served a fine “bread and water” meal during their incarceration.
Transportation to the “Jail and Bail” is available within a 15-mile radius of the event, or participants may arrange for their own “arrest”.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the 2nd Annual Columbia County Veterans Stand Down. Details: Pam Daniel, 503-366-6591, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A good indicator that fall is just around the bend in Columbia County is waking up to chilly, damp temperatures in the mornings and discovering magnificently constructed spider webs draped over much of your landscaping:
And these falling from your oak trees, making crunchy noises under your feet as you cross the lawn:
We have a forecasted high in Columbia County today of 86°F. Evening temperature will drop to around 51°F. Summer is slowly making an exit. Enjoy every last second of it!
