Salem Friends of Felines host fundraiser

Salem Friends of Felines, which serves Polk and Marion counties, will hold its 15th-annual fundraising auction on Saturday Oct. 2 from 5-8 p.m.

This year’s event will be held at the Oregon State Fairgrounds in Cascade Hall, located at 2330 17th Street NE, Salem.

Salem Friends of Felines is a non-profit/no-kill cat rescue group helping both humans and felines in Marion and Polk counties. Last year, more than 1,300 cats were placed into homes through the organization’s adoption program. The Spay and Neuter Assistance Program has provided many pet owners the opportunity to have their cats altered at a substantially reduced cost. Salem Friends of Felines is about to celebrate it’s 16,000th adoption!

All proceeds benefit the cats in our community and help cover costly medical care for ill and injured cats.

Tickets are available now for $55.00 each until Sept 15, then $60.00 each or $400 for a table of eight.

Tickets include hearty appetizers and beverages, as well as a fantastic silent auction, plus live music.

Guests should be 21 years and older.

You can purchase your tickets at www.sfof.org or at our thrift store/adoption center at 4157 Cherry Ave NE, Keizer.

Visit SFOF website at www.sfof.org for more information.

Tickets may also be purchased at the door the day of the event for $60 each if not sold out.

Local artist featured at library

The Dallas Public Library, 950 Main St., Dallas, will feature the artwork of Jan Story through September

Jan Story, a local artist, uses fabric, needle and thread to create wall art, quilts and embellished clothing.

Story’s grandfather designed and drew beautiful scrolled diplomas for schools while her mother was an accomplished oil painter. Using her inherited talent, Jan uses fabric, thread and her sewing machines to bring to life the images she envisions. Jan has won numerous awards for her work including a quilt show People’s Choice Award for her three-dimensional Raven’s Treausures and her Turkish Delight, which was on display in fabric stores around the United States for a year.

Both of these may currently be seen at the Dallas Library. Story also has created a line of commercial patterns for wearable art jackets and wall hangings which she sells through her website, Jan Story Designs.

Trick ‘n’ Treat seeks sponsors, volunteers

The Dallas Area Chamber of Commerce is looking for sponsors and volunteers for the 2021 Trick ‘n’ Treat event in downtown Dallas on Oct. 30.

Last year the event brought in 2,200 people to downtown businesses and organizers anticipate a big turnout this year, as well.

DACC will be working with Morrison Campus Alternative School students this year through a workforce development capacity.
