CAP To Hold Block Party

Mid-Columbia Community Action is holding a fundraiser block party on Friday outside of its headquarters on 312 East 4th in The Dalles, across from The Dalles Civic Auditorium.  Along with the organization’s annual barbecue, there will be some fun activities and a small auction with donations going to help assist families in need throughout the year.  Community Action Executive Director Jim Slusher says they are trying to generate more funds to help people who struggled to pay their heating bills this past winter.  The block party will be between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Friday.
