VOLUME 4, NUMBER 230
Wednesday, October 25, 2023
Good afternoon. In the newsletter today: Philomath city councilors finalized where this year’s contributions will go for social services and other types of funding. Also, the boys soccer team pushed conference champion Stayton to the limit and the girls rolled to another mercy rule win with the state playoffs to begin next week. Plus, Philomath High’s ASB students asked me to help them spread the word about a Veterans Day event coming up Nov. 9 (RSVP if you’re interested) so give that a read for the details.
Thanks for reading!
