Mac Rack moving to new location
The Mac Rack Consignment Shop is now open in a new location — the former Pogy's quarters at 125 N.E. Highway 99W, which underwent an extensive renovation under the direction of new owner Eric Wolff, president of the Washington Roofing Company.
Shelli Wainwright opened the shop in October 2011 in partnership with her sisters, Cindi O'Brien, Traci Herring and Lesli Okorn. They moved it into the new space Thursday and Friday and opened for business there Saturday, according to O'Brien.
The building has an eye-catching, modernistic look in a high-traffic location. And it offers 4,000 square feet, about 1,500 more than the shop's old location.
O'Brien said the new digs would give the partners more retail and office space, and allow them to expand their inventory to include antiques.
PEACE CORPS SPEAKER
Former Peace Corps volunteer Sam Hagglund will address the Yamhill County Small Woodlands Association at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, at the OSU Extensive Service auditorium, 2050 N.E. Lafayette Ave.
He will relate his experiences as a forest and agricultural advisor in the African nation of Zambia. They included living in a hut and getting around on a bike.
Free refreshments will be provided by Brian Doyle and door prizes by Elmer Parker. All interested members of the community are invited.
A new fundraising campaign for United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley, designed by Creative Company of McMinnville, will kick off Thursday, Oct. 3, at the Salem Convention Center.
The campaign will encompass Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties all three. The theme is, "Live United to the Power of 5."
The theme is designed to communicate different ways that people can help United Way, using the number five in ways such as "5 reasons to give," and "5 reasons to bring United Way into your workplace."
NO CHANGES PLANNED
No changes are planned at the state liquor outlet in McMinnville in response to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission's approval of wine and beer sales.
Owner Ken Skinner said he doesn't have room in his current location to add wine and beer inventory, and he isn't interested in moving his operation. He said he likes the fact his outlet, situated in a strip mall at 1270 N.E. Baker St., is centrally located.
A months-long pilot program at selected outlets set the stage for the change.
The McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce has a greeters and ribbon-cutting set for 8 to 9 a.m. Friday at Miller Technologies, 1300 N.E. Highway 99W.
Newberg’s Chehalem Valley Chamber of Commerce has one scheduled from 8 to 9 a.m. Friday at the Chehalem Cultural Center, 415 E. Sheridan St., for the Art Alliance of Yamhill County.
