Around Town for Nov-Dec 2019

Washington trip open to HS juniors

Consumers Power, Inc. has opened its annual search for a current high school junior to represent the not-for-profit electric cooperative during a weeklong adventure to the nation’s capital.

This opportunity is part of the national Youth Tour program coordinated by statewide electric cooperative associations and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.

For more than 50 years, electric cooperatives have been sending student leaders to the nation’s capital each summer where they get an up-close look at the political process while also touring national museums, monuments and memorials. The trip will also teach them more about the role electric cooperatives play in providing safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable power to their members.

During the trip, June 18-25, 2020, the CPI delegate will join with over 1,500 other high school students from electric co-ops in more than 40 states.

Students will meet with their elected legislators, talk to staff from NRECA and other international organizations as well gain a personal understanding of American history and their role as an American citizen.

Students attending are financially sponsored by their local co-op and are typically selected to attend based on their community involvement, interest in government and their desire to learn. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many rural students who are usually visiting Washington D.C. for the first time.

Youth Tour applications are due by end of business on Tuesday, Dec. 31.

Any high school junior whose full-time residence receives electric service from Consumers Power is eligible to enter.

Immediate family members of directors or full-time employees of CPI are not eligible.

Applications and more information can be found via www.cpi.coop/news, email: [email protected] or phone: (541) 929-8520.

Grief help during holiday season

Do you or someone you know grieve during the holidays?

Lumina Hospice and Palliative Care will host a free talk on “Grief and the Holidays” from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, at 720 SW 4th St., Corvallis.

Holidays without the person who died can seem daunting, stressful and painful when someone is grieving. They may wonder how they will get through a dinner, let alone a full season of merrymaking. Often the anticipation of a holiday is far worse than the actual holiday itself. Thinking ahead and planning how one feels he or she would like to – or be able to – participate in a holiday is important. Speaker Melissa Allen will cover strategies that may help you cope, or strategies you can use to help someone you know who is grieving.

Bring your own lunch. Cookies and beverages will be provided.

For more information, call (541) 757-9616.

‘Junk Art’ party to make ornaments

Every December, the Brownsville Art Association participates in the annual Festival of Trees, a fundraiser where Christmas trees decorated by local organizations are auctioned off to benefit the Brownsville community.

The theme for this year’s BAA tree is “Junk Art.” Artists have been donating handmade junk art ornaments throughout 2019, but more are still needed.

The last of four ornament parties to complete the goal is from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26, at the Brownsville Art Center, 255 N. Main St.

Basic tools, hanging supplies and some junk will be available for everyone to share. Participants are encouraged to bring more junk and any specialized tools or supplies they may require. (Please note that any leftover junk brought must be taken back home after the party.) Children under the age of twelve must be accompanied by an adult. The BAA will provide snacks.

Junk art is a great way to repurpose (or “upcycle”) objects that are no longer useful.

Many people have entire drawers dedicated to holding orphaned screws, old keys, lone earrings, and the rest of the flotsam of life.

Ornament parties such as this are a chance to clean out things that are no longer useful, yet are too good to throw away. As a bonus, repurposing is even better for the environment than recycling.

The party is completely free, but at least one of the ornaments made by each attendee must be donated to the Brownsville Art Association Christmas tree effort. Everyone is welcome to make more ornaments to take home.

Upcycling specialists will be available to assist with ideas and execution, so anyone can bring junk to a party even if they are not sure how to put it together to make an ornament.

For more information, email [email protected], or visit brownsvilleart.org.

Manhole cover art contest deadline 

Entries for the Lebanon Arts Commission’s manhole cover art design contest, to create artistic Lebanon-themed manhole covers for the downtown area, are due Tuesday, Dec. 10. All interested parties are encouraged to submit their design ideas. The Arts Commission welcomes conceptual designs representative of the following five categories:

• Lebanon’s Wood Products Industry Era;

• Lebanon Area Wildlife;

• Lebanon’s Railroad History;

• Lebanon’s Strawberry Heritage; and

• Lebanon Freestyle (Lebanon themes that do not fit any of the above categories).

All designs must be submitted on the circular template provided in the Official Entry Form, should have a clear focal point, and be simple and uncluttered in composition. Large and bold objects usually work best on the face of a manhole cover.

A panel of judges comprised of members of the Lebanon Arts Commission will group all submissions according to the above categories and seek to select a winning design from each of the five categories. Selected designs will be forwarded to the Lebanon City Council to be ratified as official City of Lebanon Manhole Cover Designs. Once approved, the winning designs will be given to a commercial artist for uniform development.

The Arts Commission hopes to have all five designs produced as manhole covers to replace generic covers in the downtown area. All replaced covers will be re-purposed as covers in new community developments as they occur elsewhere in the community.

Contest entry deadline is at 5 p.m. on Dec. 10, at Lebanon City Hall, 925 S. Main St. The official entry form may be downloaded and printed from the City’s website at LebanonOregon.gov/ac or picked up at city hall.
