Lower Columbia Preservation Society recently presented at check for $18,000 to the Clatsop Community College Foundation to be used toward development of a shop facility at the college.

The shop would aid in the expansion of the college’s Historic Preservation and Restoration Program.

The society has been a supporter of the program and instructor Lucian Swerdloff approached members about helping with the shop facility.

“We had some funds from this fiscal year that we could use for this cause,” said Rachel Jensen, the society’s executive director. “We feel it is important for students to have a good space on campus to develop their skills. The students that come out of this program support our Society’s efforts.”

The shop’s proposed location is a section of Alder Hall.
