Message from the Mayor
Happy Holidays! I hope everyone
enjoyed Thanksgiving, and as we look
forward to the New Year, I trust everyone
has time to spend with their family. Time
is the most cherished commodity we have,
and spending it with loved ones through
the holiday time imprints memories that
we will remember forever.
While we speak of Thanksgiving, I
would like to thank all of the residents
that spend their time volunteering in
the City of Tigard. Whether you are on
a board or committee, volunteer time
at the library or picking up trash on
the streets and trails, or so many of the
untold opportunities you all step up for,
I look forward to seeing you at
Tree Lighting Festivities set for Friday,
December 6 at 7 p.m. in Liberty Park,
across from McDonald’s on Main Street.
My next “Fireside Chat with the Mayor”
is on Thursday, December 5, from 6:30 to
8:30 p.m. at Symposium Coffee at 12345 SW
Main St., Tigard.
My December quote of the month
is by John Burroughs, “I still find each day
too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all
the walks I want to take, all the books I want to
read, and all the friends I want to see.”
John L. Cook, Mayor
