Thanksgiving Dinner Annoucement

Thanksgiving Dinner

Cafe Dejeuner provides a Thanksgiving meal every year.  This meal is not dedicated to those who are down on their luck, but it's for people that don't have somewhere else to go. There are lots of older folks who don't have local family or who can longer cook large meals, single people with children and a variety of other people with different levels of need are all welcome.  People can donate if they choose, but that is unnecessary.  I just want to extend an invitation to anyone who is at a loss as to where to celebrate Thanksgiving.  The address and phone number are below.

Cafe Dejeuner        1108 E. Main St.    Medford         Phone:  541-857-1290

Thank you.

No Carcass Left Behind

Ryan Battleson with ODFW asked that we post this volunteer opportunity to club members.  Saturday, November 11th.  Looks interesting!!

Hey all,
Ryan here, your local STEP Biologist.  I wanted to ask if there may be anyone interested in volunteering for a VERY LARGE carcass toss!  It’s more of a carcass stringin’/carcass float.   I’m working with John Thiebes and Larry Butts of the local CCA.  I believe quite a few veterans and guides are helping them out next weekend, November 11.  They are the lead volunteers for this project and asked if I knew of anyone wanting to participate.  I recall that Keith Miller and a few of you joined last year.  You’d need to complete a current ODFW Conditions of Volunteer Service form if you’d be helping.
Project is distributing ~ 20,000 pounds of hatchery Spring Chinook carcasses in the upper Rogue via drift boat and bank.
What they need:
3-5 volunteers to help loading salmon carcasses onto stringers from the bank.  This requires some bending, stooping, lifting dead fish weighing 15-40 lbs. 
1-2 shuttle drivers
They already have 7 boats, but if you are an experienced oarsman/oarswoman, hold liability insurance on your vessel they’d probably take you!
Good fun (see attached flyer).
