Park neighbors are the best

Thanks to our Central Park Neighborhood Association friends for completing another phase in our landscape improvement project: old lawn removed and new turf thriving on the west side of our building.

We greatly appreciate the strong backs of Oregon State University Geography 300 students who helped move old and new sod, Jamie, Bryan, Yanlin, Kristopher and Brendan; and neighbor regulars Suki Meyer, Sam Stern and Nancy DeSautel.

Special thanks to the city of Corvallis for a Neighborhood Empowerment Grant to support this project, and to Jeff Cope and Warren from Home Grown Gardens, and Courtney Cloyd, who have done much of the heavy lifting for this improvement project.

Next time you visit The Arts Center on the south side of Central Park, please enjoy how new low-maintenance landscaping enhances our beautiful historic building.

For over 55 years, The Arts Center has been fostering creativity and engagement with the arts, to inspire personal growth and community well-being. We are the place for creative community connections.

Golf coaches grateful for support

The high school golf season recently was completed and the coaches would like to express our most sincere thanks to both Trysting Tree and the Corvallis Club (formally the Corvallis Country Club) for the amazing support they give the teams each year in allowing us to play and practice all parts of our game every week.

This year was especially difficult due to the flooding which closed Trysting Tree for several days. A special thanks goes to the Corvallis Club and General Manager Randy Folk for allowing all the boys and girls teams to come up and practice every day until Trysting reopened. As we talk with other teams around the state, it is clear we have the best support in the state from Randy and from Sean Area.
