Queen of Angels benefit dinner set for Oct. 28

The Founder’s Day Dinner is a special night benifiting the Queen of Angels monastic community. The event will take place in historic Agatha Hall at Queen of Angels Monastery in Mount Angel, on Sunday, Oct. 28.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for a hosted reception, followed by a German-themed dinner at 6 p.m. Complimentary beer and wine will also be served, along with two very special items.

First, dessert for the evening will be Sister Immaculata’s famous buttermilk coffee cakes, but with a special addition – hazelnuts! Guests will be the first to try this delicious flavor of coffee cakes.

Finally, as a special gift to all attendees, there will be limited edition jars of the famous Monastery Mustard. The Founder’s Day Dinner will be the only place you can get a jar.

Tickets are $50 per person. Call 503-845-6141 or go to for more information.

Mount Angel installs outdoor ballot box

On Oct. 4 a new curbside elections box was installed in Mount Angel on Charles Street by the library. The box will be open to take ballots as of Tuesday, Oct. 16 and will be open 24/7 until the general election deadline on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Coats collected for kids

New or gently used coats, hats, gloves, mittens and scarves are being collected through Oct. 18. The drive benefits children in need of winter wear. All sizes are welcome as there are many middle and high school kids as well. Look for collection boxes at Silverton businesses and churches. The Seventh-day Adventist Church Community Clothing Closet, 1159 Oak St,  will distribute the coats on Thursday, Oct. 25, 10 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. For information call Silverton Together: 503-873-0405.
