Fiber Optics in HalseyYou may see construction work starting to happen in the right of ways on and around West 3rd Street. There have been surveyors out and about, and line locates drawn on the streets and right of ways. Alyrica, an Internet Service Provider out of Philomath, will be installing fiber optic cable in Halsey. The project is expected to take about two years and will eventually reach every house. This will allow them to offer high speed internet more reliably and inexpensively to Halsey residents. Please be cautious driving near construction areas, for everyone’s safety. Thank you!
State Fair Tickets!If you participated in the Summer Reading Program, don’t forget to stop by the Library and pick up your tickets for the State Fair! It was awesome to have these this year, and we might not have them next year or have so many -- they really wanted to help give our first Summer Reading Program a boost! So it is a special thing and it would be great if they all get used. Come pick them up -- and then go have some fun at the State Fair!Thank you to everyone who participated in the Summer Reading Program. You folks rock! It was incredible to see all the reading this summer, all the logs turned in, and all the minutes read. We had 52 kids participate and a total of 37,719 minutes read! It was fun to have everyone come to the different events and play footgolf and do the bike rodeo and eat ice cream and celebrate all your hard work with Storyteller Rich Glauber. We can’t wait to see what we can do together next year!
Veteran’s Memorial Park Project:Volunteers Needed! The Veteran’s Memorial Park Project needs some help from folks who are willing to help with name research. Gathering names can include everything from tromping through local graveyards and reading gravestones, to chatting with the folks at the Linn County Historical Museum or going through old newspapers in the Brownsville LIbrary Geneology Room, or using your expertise with Ancestry.com to research names that way. Or you can work with local families to record names of their family or ancestors who served. For each name, we’re hoping to try to gather also the branch of service (Navy, Marines, Army, etc) and the approximate dates of service -- or the conflict, if that is what is known. If you have a little time and you’re willing to help, please contact Halsey City Hall for more information. Thank you very much!
