Our fantastic firework show is sponsored in part by Mt. Angel Oktoberfest and Roth's. We work hard to improve the show each year and are very grateful to Oktoberfest and Roth's for their continued support to help us afford the best firework show possible!

Community Flower Baskets

The beautiful red, white and blue flower baskets have arrived for the summer! These baskets are grown and purchased from Fessler's Nursery. The Marvin Fessler family is instrumental in bringing these flowers to town each year and we are so appreciative of their help, especially when it comes to hanging them at 7 am!

We also are very grateful to Oktoberfest President Bill Bischoff and Oktoberfest Vice President Peter Schmidt for their assistance in putting up baskets. The Chamber could not do this project without their partnership!

The watering of the baskets is an expensive undertaking for the chamber. It costs approximately $200 per basket to purchase and water from the beginning of June to the end of September. If you could like to support this community beautification, please consider making a donation to the flower basket fund.

2024 Scholarship Recipients

The Mt. Angel Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is pleased to announce the 2024 Junior First Citizen and Maureen Ernst Memorial Scholarship winners.

 

The Junior First Citizen Scholarship is modeled after the First Citizen award and recognizes students with outstanding and all-around community involvement in school, volunteerism, and leadership roles. The Junior First Citizen scholarship recipient this year is Sailor Hill. Sailor is the ASB Treasurer and president of FBLA at John F. Kennedy High School. She also volunteers at the library's "Ukes for Youth" program working with 13 students between the ages of 6 - 12 during the summer. Sailor serves in the student councilor position on the Mt. Angel City Council and interns as a correspondent for Our Town. She has a passion for politics and music and believes in the power of community service and giving back to society. She plans to study at the University of California Berkeley with the goal to become a journalist. The Chamber is very pleased to award Sailor with an unrestricted $2,000 scholarship

 

The Maureen Ernst Memorial Scholarship was created in memory of long-time Chamber of Commerce board member and incredible community volunteer, Maureen Ernst. This scholarship is awarded to a student who has demonstrated volunteerism above and beyond their peers. This scholarship is funded by the Hazelnut Fest, one of Maureen's favorite projects, which is held annually each December in her memory. The recipient of the Maureen Ernst Memorial Scholarship is Manya Vaquera. Manya partnered with the American Red Cross and with the help of John F. Kennedy ASB members, planned a successful blood drive in March of this year. Manya's dedication and perseverance provided the school and community with the opportunity to donate blood for the first time since 2019. Manya believes that community service is the cornerstone to human interaction, providing support and a sense of belonging. For Manya, engaging in community service and giving back to the community reflects a sense of social responsibility. Manya plans to attend Linfield College to major in Nursing with the goal to become a NICU registered nurse. The Chamber is pleased to award Manya with an unrestricted $2,000 scholarship.
