Seeking Holiday Bazaar vendors

Leedy Grange held their first Gift Locally Holiday Bazaar last year on Thanksgiving weekend. It was such a success that it’s now an annual event. Billed as “Not your Granny’s bazaar,” the two-day sale features hand-made food, craft and art items for holiday giving and decorating.

If you or someone you know would like to participate as a vendor, please contact Virginia Bruce at Visit and click on “past events” for more information.

Support Bonny Slope students

The Community Pancake Breakfast is a fundraiser put on by the Bonny Slope 5th graders to raise money to spend three days at Outdoor School (an Oregon tradition) and for their activities during the year. Kristina Seale, Bonny Slope Fifth Grade Activities Coordinator, says, “Not only does it support the great activities for them, but it is always fun to see them work hard and involve the community to earn the opportunity.”

The breakfast will be at Bonny Slope Elementary on Saturday, September 11th from 8-10 am. The fifth-grade students will also be giving tours of the school since many in the community have not had a chance to see Cedar Mill’s beautiful new school!

The kids would love support from the Cedar Mill area businesses! If you would like to help with food donations for the breakfast, monetary donations or by advertising the breakfast to your clients in the community, please let us know. Your help would be very greatly appreciated and noted at the event. To offer your help, contact Kristina at or 503-867-6375.
