Tuesday, June 5, 2012
BORING, Ore. (AP) -- The 38 members of the Boring Community Planning Organization gave a unanimous "aye" vote Tuesday in favor of declaring the Clackamas County town "a pair for the ages" with the Scottish village of Dull.
The organization hopes the publicity and sale of Dull and Boring T-shirts will boost tourism.
The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/B2gZNv) the Boring declaration wishes "continued freedom, successful commerce, safety and prosperity for each community and its residents."
The 72-year-old great-grandson of the town namesake, Bob Boring, said the partnership with Dull was fun and exciting.
