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 Jenny Cady. The home of Jenny and Justin Salyars was affected greatly by the September floods, compromising the foundation and forcing them out of their home. Despite planning as well as they could, many things were unrecoverable with the devastation. As anyone can imagine, expenses have piled up and greatly altered their way of life.
Jenny and her three children; Dayton(17), Teressa(14) and Deelo(7) remain positive and active in the Palo community. Jenny is a dedicated employee of the city, working as a maintenance worker for the last seven years. Justin and Jenny want nothing more than to get back to a new normal and life and to continue raising their family in Palo.

Palo Fire Department

Comprised of a dedicated group of volunteers from in and around Palo. They are individuals with families, full-time jobs, and active lifestyles who still find time to give back to their community. The members of the department are trained and certified as Firefighters as well as Emergency Medical Technicians and are ready to respond to any emergency at a moments notice.
If helping others, serving the community, and driving a big red fire truck are for you please contact the Palo Fire Department at 319 851-4831 or to discuss becoming a part of this dynamic team
