Rotary of Canby

Josh Brunning told of his plans for the historic “pink” bank building on the corner of Hwy 75 and 2nd Street at the May 11 meeting of the Rotary Club of Canby. He showed a sample of the copper colored shingle that will be used to restore the cupola and spoke of the many community volunteers helping with the restoration.

Area History

In 1898, Mr. B. O. Crandall was the publisher of the Canby News and also the Porter Weekly Press. How many people are there that remember a newspaper from Porter? I talked to someone this winter that said they had seen a paper from Porter in some relative’s property.

Thank you to Jim’s Market for providing this opportunity for us and to all who came out and enjoyed a burger!

Gardening on the Prairie

I’ve been slowly getting things in the ground over the last couple weeks but obviously the 3” of rain slowed that down a bit. I have two major beds left to plant as well as two new beds I have planned in my head that I should probably order some soil for. But I think it’s safe to say we are a “go” for the spring planting season.

Save Our Sanity

Asa is now just over two weeks old, and I need to get back into the swing of things soon as it is what keeps me sane. Not having a schedule or routine doesn’t work for me, so this week, we will get back at it.
