Rock the Clock

Posted on 29th May 2014 at 15:47

St. Helens High School senior Spencer Foster is taking on the restoration of the historic clock in the Columbia County Courthouse as his senior project, and he’s getting started on the fundraising effort needed to pay for that work. The St. Helens Chronicle reports that about $12,000 is needed to buy bezels, clock faces, hands, paint and various mechanical parts. The “Rock the Clock” project is being endorsed by a number of businesses and community organizations, with donation stations being set up at Red Apple IGA, Ace Hardware and the Pastime Tavern in St. Helens. Donations can also be made to the Rock the Clock account at the Saint Helens Federal Credit Union.
