A big weekend is ahead if you love the holiday spirit.
There is Saturday’s Winter Wonderland Parade in Ontario, put on by the Ontario Area Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by the Malheur Enterprise.
There is another holiday bazaar, this one at the Malheur County Fairgrounds, running Friday and Saturday.
On Saturday evening, Four Rivers Cultural Center has its annual tree lighting and then holiday activities inside.
At the same time Saturday, the Nyssa Nite Lite Christmas Parade rolls through that community.
For those outdoor activities, be on guard – temperatures are forecast to just hit freezing later in the week. Saturday, there’s a chance of snow.
Meantime, here’s some of the work done in recent days by your local team at the Enterprise.
Weekly feature: Cats need a home
Nellie is the longest resident at Ontario’s cat shelter. She has been with us since June 15, 2019 – over 1,260 days.
Nellie came to us after she gave birth in a shed. The homeowner contacted us and told us he would kill her and her babies if they weren’t removed immediately.
All of Nellie’s babies found their forever families, but Nellie hasn’t found the perfect family to give her a chance.
Nellie has a splash of cattitude. She’s in our cage free room and does great with the other kitties. She just keeps to herself and enjoys birdwatching and being a Gladys Kravitz.
She needs a family that will accept her for who she is and let her come around on her own terms.
She is neutered, UTD on vaccinations and tested negative for FeLV & FIV. She needs to be indoors only for safety. No declawing.
SATURDAY ADOPTION EVENT: Every Saturday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Constance McCullough House, 84 N.W. 2nd St. in Ontario.
