Around the City – September 2021 | Lebanese local

An invitation was made

Earlier this summer, the Lebanese Chamber of Commerce announced that it had canceled an invitation to a special service award scheduled for the first Friday, September 24, due to masked orders from former Oregon Governor Kate Brown.
“The Board has chosen to postpone this event until 2022,” said Rebecca Grisis, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce. We understand and share the frustrations of many of you, and we appreciate your patience as we try to make these events a success.
The good news is that despite the Covenant restrictions, we have a very dedicated and committed DSA committee working on creating three different ways to move forward so that we have one way forward by 2022.
Griezz, for his part, said Friday, February 18, 2022, that he would be held at the Boulder Allste Event Center if he could conduct an in-house event that was not restricted by COVID restrictions.
“If that day approaches and it becomes clear that we will not be able to gather there, we will continue to pursue other options, including outdoor or electronic space,” she said.
The nomination forms will remain in place until next year, he said.
“We have a lot of great people in Lebanon, and we look forward to meeting again soon,” Griezz said.

Free section on indigenous florists

The Oregon State University Extension Service Master Gardener Program is offering a series of up-to-date virtual gardening courses for growing Oregon gardeners at 2pm on the second Tuesday of November at 3:00 p.m.
Prior to the outbreak, the series was a physical education course for major gardeners, but the webinar format allowed the sessions to be made available to the public.
The content learned by horticulturists around the state is intended to address current issues such as wildfires, climate change and pollen.
The theme for September 14 is “Caring for Flowers in the Garden.” Indigenous horticulture has been classified as one of the three major landscaping and horticultural trends over the past few years, partly because of its benefits to pollen. This talk will share the research conducted by OSU Garden Ecology Laboratory on the relationship between Indigenous people and pollen, as well as recommendations for local horticulturalists.
Courses are free but registration is required. To make it accessible to those who are unable to participate in the live session, the courses are registered and available at Extension:
