Cedar Mill Community Club kickoff meeting

independence day celebration

We created the Cedar Mill Community Club to capture the community spirit around our Holiday Tree. Now it’s time to see what we can do going forward to make Cedar Mill an even more welcoming, exciting, and neighborly place. Initially the group got going on Facebook, but we know a lot of our potential participants don’t use that, so we’re calling a meeting!

Many people who have ongoing mental and emotional health problems are survivors of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). These can have lasting, negative effects on health and well-being, as well as on education, job potential, and other life opportunities. They often have difficulty knowing where to turn for help.

Protect and build your soil!

Most soils in the Cedar Mill area formed in material deposited 13,000 to 15,000 years ago during the last part of the ice age. The remarkable “Missoula Floods” of that time, described in the book Cataclysms on the Columbia (Allen et al., 2009), explains how these soil-forming materials arrived.
