Weed removal was an act of kindness

Thank you to the unknown person who cleaned up the weeds on Daggett Avenue which were sticking out over the sidewalk.

As a Klamath area senior, I want to say how much I appreciate that.

Showing appreciation for Klamath art

We would like to extend a very appreciated “thank you” to everyone who attended our Klamath Art Gallery Show opening receptions on Sept. 1 and 8. You took time out of your day to let us know you enjoy art and crafts.

A very special thanks to several people who were a great help, including Ken and Karen Simpson, receptionists; Liz Hubbard, reception and setup; Joyce Wagler for her tasty treats; and Tommy Franks for supplying the wonderful background music. Without them and all in attendance, the show would not have been the success it was.
