13th, 2006, at 2:00p.m. people all over Independence, Oregon, Western
Oregon University (WOU), and Monmouth, Oregon left their places
on foot and walked toward the Polk County Fire Station carrying
yellow umbrellas. The first to arrive there formed a trickle of
color; as others joined in to become a stream of yellow umbrellas
and a sea of yellow around the fire station. The umbrellas were
then displayed in the lobby celing at Hamersly Library through the
end of July.
