VALE – It’s time to sidle up for the annual Vale Crab Feed at the Vale Fire and Ambulance Fire Hall.

The event will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, March 26. It is sponsored by the nonprofit Vale Community Coalition.

“It is a longstanding community event that supports community projects,” said Vale Mayor Tom Vialpando, who is on the coalition board.

Proceeds from this year’s feed will be used to support Vale parks, said Jennifer Tolman, also a member of the coalition.

Money from last year’s event went to provide matching funds for a grant from the Eastern Oregon Border Economic Development Board . . .
