The West Linn Community Group (WLCG) is dedicated to developing and improving the quality of life for the area communities by providing opportunities to the evolving social, economic, and cultural needs.

As members of the West Linn Community Group, we are committed to serving the greater good of the community through:


Volunteering and charity strengthens the sense of community. We give through financial collection and individual skill sets that bring people together with their families to support community development. We aim to instill a sense of responsibility and caring that calls us to serve.

Community Building

We exist for our community. We want to unite people from diverse backgrounds and work towards a common goal of a safe and vibrant community.


Understanding community needs helps foster empathy. As time progresses, so does our responsiveness and obligation to evolve to those needs.

Social Integrity

We actively create healthy relationships in our community. We aim to distribute wealth and opportunities that enable all people to live up to their potential, using our resources to serve, advocate and communicate to those in need.

The Proceeds

Proceeds of the J&J benefit the Palo Fire Department directly and will be used at their discretion. Funds from this year's event will go towards the family of former Assistant Fire Chief Keith Bisson and his wife, Dana. Their daughter, Ashley, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Stage 4B in April 2015. She received five 21 day cycles of chemo and a 15 day cycle of radiation. She has undergone countless blood work and scans. Currently, Ashley is considered in remission. She has monthly appointments at the University of Iowa Children's Hospital. These visits include labs, followed by an appointment with her primary oncologists, and an appointment with her radiologist. These visits monitor the progress to her immune system. They also check the progress of her physical therapy as muscle damaged occurred in her legs and feet from the chemo medications.
Ashley and her family want what anyone would want, normalcy. To be healthy enough to return to the things she loves. To one day perform as part of show choir. Despite all of this, she has remained positive. Even making blankets for other teenagers at the University of Iowa Children's Hospital, when she saw a need for them. The positive attitude does not help pay the accumulation of medical bills. This fundraiser will. Your support is truly appreciated.
