The fund to help restore the Black Hawk statue grew by $121 dollars during the Autumn on Parade weekend thanks to the efforts of the Oregon Street Department and donors.

An old Oregon parking meter, refurbished by the city, was raffled off this past weekend. Tickets were sold for $1 each.

Casper Manheim, Oregon, was the winner of meter.

"We would like to thank AOP committee, Oregon Depot Museum board, Oregon Fire Department and Wayne Suter  for their efforts in helping us raise these funds," said Oregon Street Superintendent Mike Bowers.
