Help for a longtime Mapleton resident

We recently got some sad news about a friend who has lived in the Mapleton area his whole life, Tony Erickson. 

He is going to go through a lot to get to what we hope and pray is a cure. Tony and his wife, Karen, need all of us at a time like this to be there for them.

We decided that they could probably use a little monetary help, too.  So, we have started a fund at Oregon Pacific Bank. Anyone wishing to donate can make checks out to the Tony Erickson Donation Fund. 

OPB has been very helpful to us and we really want to thank them.

We also will be hosting a spaghetti feed at the Mapleton Grange  on Sunday, Feb. 9, from 4 to 6 p.m. 

During the fundraiser dinner, we will  celebrate Tony’s birthday, which is the next day.

Community members and neighbrs are invited to join together for a good time and reminiscing, with all proceeds going to Tony and Karen.

We also want to thank the Mapleton Grange for allowing us to use its facility.

Please keep praying for Tony.
