I think we can all agree: Clackamas County looks pretty good for 175. The county will celebrate its 175th with a public event at 11 a.m., Oct. 25, at the Public Services Building in Oregon City.
- A description of the items that will be buried inside a time capsule, to be lowered later that day on the grounds of the Red Soils Campus. The capsule will be buried for 50 years.
- An introduction and recognition of all living former Clackamas County Commissioners.
- A presentation from local historian Patrick Harris, Executive Director for the Aurora Colony Historical Society, about the history of Clackamas County.
- Reenactor Doug Neeley, former Oregon City Mayor, giving a talk as John McLoughlin.
To RSVP, members of the public should email Clackamas County’s Dylan Blaylock at firstname.lastname@example.org the subject line “175th Reservation.” County staff will get back to individuals regarding reservation status.
