Canby Conversation: "What is the story of Canby?" Katie Pratt, of the historical preservation firm Northwest Vernacular, says that is the most common question she has heard in surveying local residents on their views about our town's history and heritage. She tells us why history is important to a small town, and how city leaders might use her work to preserve Canby's story for generations to come.

After the Break: Canby Area Chamber Director Kyle Lang gives us a preview of the upcoming chamber gala, which looks to be a groovy good time.
