Lights on land and at sea Olde Towne offers special deals, hours
he retailers and restaurants of Olde Towne invite you to shop and eat in the heart of St. Helens with special prices and later hours. Throughout December, purchase an item at an Olde Towne or John Gumm School merchant and receive 15-percent off a meal in the same area. “It’s a hand-holding promotion because we talk about each other,” said Roni Bartlett, co-owner of the Klondike Restaurant and member of the Olde Towne Merchants Association. “We can help the merchants and the merchants can help the restaurants.” The purchase and the meal don’t have to be on the same day – make a purchase anytime in December and your 15-percent meal coupon is good throughout the month. This is the second year of the promotion; see the ad on page B1 for a list of participating merchants. Also during December, merchants in Olde Towne will be open late – until 9 p.m. every Thursday – for holiday shopping. Both ideas came from members of the re-re-revived Olde Towne Merchants Association – a loose organization of businesses that aim to revitalize the area of town in and around the courthouse square. Bartlett doesn’t have a formal title in the organization, but laughed that “head cheerleader” might be an apt description of her duties. She spearheaded the 15-percent off promotion. There have been many previous attempts at the Merchants Association, she said. The most recent meetings kicked off a few months ago, and Bartlett is optimistic this go-around. “We have an enthusiastic group of merchants this time, so that’s going to be helpful,” she said. “We are looking for ways to band together and make some noise.”
St. Helens tree lighting to coincide with arrival of the Christmas Ship Parade Weather and river conditions permitting, they will cross to the Washington side and the RV Park, then return to the St. Helens City Docks. The fleet is out about two hours. Ships remain overnight at St. Helens City Docks and leave Sunday for the trip up the Multnomah Channel. If you miss the evening’s activities, catch the Ship Fleet in Scappoose on Sunday, Dec. 9. At 4:30 p.m. Dec. 9, both the Columbia and the Willamette fleets will meet in the afternoon at Coon Island and leave for Scappoose arriving at approximately 5 p.m. They will continue up the Multnomah Channel to the Willamette River. This is a long night and arrival at the Willamette River is usually between 8-8:30 p.m. It is not possible to give a closer time frame due to weather conditions, debris in the river, and other conditions beyond control. A full schedule for the Columbia and Willamette fleets, as well as a link for donations, can be found at christmasships.org.
owntown St. Helens will mark the holiday season with a tree lighting ceremony that coincides with the arrival of the 58th annual Christmas Ship Parade along the Columbia. The Christmas Ship Fleet averages about 55 to 60 boats between its two Columbia and Willamette River fleets. The boats, 14 to 65 feet long, are brightly decorated for the holiday season. The privately owned vessels come from Portland, Vancouver, McMinnville, Salem and Hood River areas. Some of the ship owners have been part of the Christmas tradition for more than 30 years, with many being part of the fleets for more than 20 years. Each skipper is responsible for his own expenses, including fuel and insurance for their vessels over the two weeks. The organization accepts donations to help cover the cost of an event insurance policy for the group, along with administrative costs for the year. The tree lighting ceremony beings at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8 at the courthouse square. Carolers will light the tree, and Santa will be arriving via fire truck. At 6 p.m. that evening, both ship fleets will assemble at the St. Helens City Docks and head downriver to Columbia City.
