Good afternoon. In the newsletter today: At least 150 people turned out this past Saturday for a significant maintenance and cleanup project at Mount Union Cemetery. Some needed work got done but there was a surprise with the discovery of the grave marker of a 2-year-old child who died in 1875. We have a story and photo gallery. Plus, read about Philomath High’s 9-1 girls soccer win over Estacada and how the cross-country and boys soccer teams fared in their Thursday competitions.
Thanks for reading!
