Lorane News for June 26, 2019

• School is officially out for summer. I was asked to mention that everyone please slow down when going through Lorane. It is posted 35 mph, but many people are driving much faster than that; kids and others may be crossing the road or on bicycles, so please observe the speed limit.

• Last Thursday, June 20, 66 community members and 10 officials from Lane County were in attendance for the Territorial Highway Reconstruction meeting at Lorane Grange. A wealth of information was shared. The project should begin next summer on Stoney Point and will be done in four stages culminating in 2024. The new highway will have 11-foot-wide lanes and 6-foot-wide shoulders, plus other changes. Subsequent meetings will be held, hopefully at the Grange, to share plans. A big thank you to everyone who came.

• July is around the corner and that means the 16th Annual Crow Car Show on is just around the corner on July 13. Already, numerous cars are pre-registered. Volunteers are still needed. Call Marissa at 541-517-6608 to register your car or to volunteer. Aside from all the fabulous vehicles, there will be a host of other activities, including a free pancake breakfast and a Kid Zone. It’s a great day of activities for the whole family and the biggest Booster Club fundraiser for our CAL School District.

• Lorane Community Association is once again promoting the Community-wide Garage/Yard Sale for Aug. 3. It will be free to put your places on the map. To rent a table, call Contact Jeri Porter at the Grange at 542-952-2448. Plan ahead and start your summer cleaning.

• If you have plans for the week of July 4th, be safe, careful and enjoy. We live in a wonderful country — be proud.
