August 17th & 18th Palo Fun Days

Palo Fun Days was held at Zeller Memorial Park on August 18th. With events for everyone - 5K, Parade, Craft Market, Bags Tournament, bands, Mud Runs & fireworks - we had a very successful weekend!  Estimated crowd of 750-1000 people came into our community and enjoyed the day! Proceeds from West Linn Community Group events are put back into the community with projects like scoreboards, land improvements, holiday gifts for our seniors and events throughout the year. We appreciate the help of 30+ volunteers and the financial support of all of our sponsors.
