Richland City Council Rodeo Club Works For Adoption Changes Meeting Date .............. ............ .The September m eting of .. Photo by Shorrie KVamme PAINTING THE TOWN YELLOW - or at least the curbs, is one way Amanda McLean, Rena Olson and Rena's room, JoLinn Hoover, are working toward cre- ating a Rodeo Club operating under the auspices of the Pine Eagle School dis- trict and supported through Pine Eagle United Youth Fund projects. by Sherrle Kvamme Youth Fund is supported by grants and donations and, as a non-profit corporation reg- istered in the State of Oregon, is recognized by the IRS as a tax- deductible charitable orga- nization. The mission of the Pine Eagle United Youth Fund is "to provide worthwhile fundraising op- portunities for local youth groups by de- veloping, fund- ing and admin- istering com- munity projects." For informa- tion about Pine Eagle United Youth Fund, grant applications or a list of available projects, please visit -youthfund/default.htm or call Linda Collier, chair; Kay Young, vice chairman; or di- rectors Katy Bloom, Jasper of the Hells Canyon Journal Coombes, Sandy Omann, Pat Sowers, Chance Anderson or Karl Young. Amanda McLean and Rena Olson have made a strong commitment to the Pine-Eagle Rodeo Club, in- cluding fundraising. To support their club activi- ties, they sold buttons at the fair, and will help set up tents for Cycle Oregon. Sunday, they were discovered painting the curbs in downtown Rich- land. The rodeo club will submit a request for official recogni- tion as a school activity to the Pine-Eagle School Board at its September 15 meeting. The club seeks to be included under the umbrella of school activities as the Pine-Eagle School Rodeo Team. By applying for fund-rais- ing work through the Pine Eagle United Youth Fund, the club could access the job bank already organized and available to assist young people and alternatively provide youth with mean- ingful and skill-building ser- vice jobs. The added plus is increased awareness and participation in their home community.
