Busy summer at Canyon Service Center

The Canyon Service Center in Mill City continues to offer a wide range of summer activities.

On Aug. 8, the Center is sponsoring a day trip to Clear Lake and the McKenzie River.

For the Aug. 19 Dog Daze Mill City-wide yard sale, the Canyon Service Center will have spaces available in the parking lot for people to have a sale table. Call or email the CSC by Aug. 12 for more information.

A variety of events will begin in September, such as card bingo, movie night, and health and safety classes. Pinochle continues and welcomes new players.

Fundraising is underway for CSC building refurbishing over the next couple of months. There will be new flooring and a big-screen TV as the center looks to create a classroom and movie space. Expect to see some redecorating in the social room, as well as new exterior paint. Donations and volunteers are needed to get these projects completed. 

The volunteer board members have been busy processing recyclable cans and bottles for income with assistance from community members and Detroit Lake State Park.

The center also raised $161 for VETcare with a July 4 fundraiser at Kimmel Park and received a generous donation from a local couple to buy new wheelchairs for the CSC’s medical equipment loaner program. Please contact the Canyon Service Center if you have a short-term need for a walker, shower chair, or wheelchair that is not covered by health insurance.

Call 503-897-4176 or email [email protected] for details, and watch for events on the Facebook page
