VeteransMemorialParkProjectIn partnership with the Brownsville American Legion, Travis Moothart Post 184, the City of Halsey will be revamping the Halsey Veterans Memorial Park. The project will involve installing a new circular seating area with benches, a new flag pole and lighting, and a new monument in the center of the park. The goal for the new monument is to honor the service of veterans from the Central Linn Community: Halsey, Brownsville, and Shedd, and the surrounding rural area. Currently, we are on track to complete the renovations by July of 2017.We need your help!The City of Halsey will be gathering names and dates of service for veterans who currently live in the Central Linn Community or who lived here prior to or after their service. If you or a family member served in the armed forces after WWII, and live or lived in the Halsey, Brownsville, or Shedd, or the surrounding rural community, please contact us. To submit a name, or if you have questions, please call (541) 369-2522, email email@example.com, or stop by Halsey City Hall.The project is supported by grants from the Veterans and War Memorials Grant Program of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department and from the Central Linn Community Foundation.
Community Thanksgiving DinnerThank you to everyone who helped with the annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner! We served over 60 people this year, and delivered meals to several people who couldn’t make it in to the community center. Thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated, cooked, helped with set up and clean up, and thank you to everyone who came and ate, and helped make the event a success!
Halsey Light ParadeChristmas is right around the corner and holiday cheer will soon be heard, and seen, as the 2016 Halsey Parade of Lights takes place on Sunday, December 18 at 5:00 pm.In an effort to help out the city with the parade, this year’s event will be put on by the Halsey-Shedd Fire District and their volunteers. “We are helping to continue this fun and festive event here in Halsey, and have plans to expand it bigger and brighter in years to come,” said John McMillen, Halsey-Shedd Fire District Information Officer.This year, organizers are moving the parade back to West 3rd Street, beginning at the Central Linn Elementary School and heading south on West 3rd Street to the Halsey City Park. “We would like to see the parade downtown on Highway 99 in the future,” stated McMillen, “but we couldn’t get the logistics to work out this year and will work on that for next year’s parade.”If you would like to participate in the event, it’s not too late to join the celebration. Entry is free and you can pick up an entry form at Halsey Fire Station, Halsey City Hall, or the Halsey Select Market. Put together your walking group, vehicle or float and decorate it brightly for the evenings parade!For more information, contact the Halsey-Shedd Fire District office at 541-760-2419 or stop by their Facebook page at: facebook.com/halseyfire
