Ready! Set! Donate! Can-DO is looking for all of those Oregon beverage cans and bottles (metal, plastic or glass--they all go in the same BLUE BAG!) that are piling up in your garage or in the shed! Can-DO has established a Give Program account with the Oregon Bottle Drop Program to raise money for Light Up Gold Hill 2021 and all the other Christmas events (Santa Lights the Tree, caroling, community meal, etc.).

All you need is a BLUE BAG or two or five. Can-DO members will be handing out BLUE BAGS in Ray’s Parking Lot in Gold Hill on Saturday, March 6 and Saturday, March 13. Swing by and pick up your BLUE BAG, take it home, fill it up, take it to City Hall or to a Bottle Drop Center. Get another BLUE BAG at City Hall and do it all over again!

If you miss out on the BLUE BAG BRIGADE KICKOFF, you can get a BLUE BAG at City Hall. You must have your bottles and cans in a BLUE BAG with a donation sticker in order for Can-DO to receive your donation.

Gold Hill Treasure Hunt
Now in the planning stage is an exciting interactive adventure for our
kids — The Lost Treasure of Gold Hill. It begins when they meet the ghost
of an 1850s miner and are sent on a quest for his lost treasure. Before
they gain the big prize, though, they must prove themselves by undergoing three trials.

Kids will travel in groups of five, led by volunteer guides. Stops include the ghost, a magical enchantress, a game of skill, the Chamber of Wisdom, the gauntlet and, finally the treasure area. This is designed for kids five to eleven years old.

The adventure begins indoors near the trail head, but most of it takes place on our river beach. Near the river they will undergo a test of their skill, and then answer two riddles at the Chamber of Wisdom. Next it is on to a gauntlet where they will prove their courage by fending off giant (inflatable) sharks, whales and alligators.

Having proven themselves, they receive a Victory Medal and a map to the lost treasure. After following some tricky clues, they reach a sandy area and dig up small treasure chests. Everybody receives something.

The treasure hunt is planned for mid to late June, Covid regulations, and funding permitting. Also, we’re hoping for a number of volunteers to come forward — volunteers to help set up stations (gazebos, tables, signs and props) around the beach area; and volunteers to serve as guides. We will also be setting up a snack area near the treasure
area and will need volunteer servers.

Interested in being a part of this fun event —one our kids will remember forever? Please send your name and contact information to Ed Miller at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
