The Klamath Writer’s Club with Happy Camp Chamber of Commerce started Dear Mad’m Day last year. Next month is the second annual Dear Dear Mad’m Symposium will be Peter and Elizabeth Lismer who will be with us to talk about (and autograph) their new biography of Stella W. Patterson, Dear Mad’m, Who Was She?

Bigfoot Byway update: October is usually the most beautiful time of Autumn to drive our Scenic Byways to Happy Camp. Someone, who had been in Happy Camp for many years, mentioned that they didn’t know that Highway 96 from Happy Camp to Willow Creek is the Bigfoot Scenic Byway, so more on that under Happy Camp History.

Lenny Green was here to sing at the Bigfoot Jamboree. Afterwards, he said, “We had a great time, despite the problems of my singing with so much smoke in the air. We hope to return same day next year.Happy Camp is kind of a very special place …. I know you must love it there. In case you missed it, I have placed a link to your Chamber at http://www.landofthebigfoot.com/byway.htm.
You know that the chamber is at happycampchamber.org but you will want to go there and hear Lenny sing about the Bigfoot Scenic Byway!

Thank you for your interest in Happy Camp. With the Goff Fire finally contained, skies have cleared. There is a crisp coolness these mornings, but the garden is still keeping us tremendously busy with beans, tomatoes, peppers and such! Such a bountiful harvest again this year. It’s a wonderful time of year to enjoy along the beautiful wild Klamath River.




Things to do – for children and teens

August 11, 2009

What are your kids doing for the summer vacation from school? I was reading that Sasha and Malia Obama’s fabulous summer vacation includes foreign travel, the Eiffel Tower, Rome, the Pantheon and the Kremlin, concerts, and being free from school routines. They also spent time volunteering at Fort McNair in Virginia, where the girls helped stuff backpacks with books and toys for the children of military families. But the presidential family limits their television and computers all day until just before bedtime, which is early for the girls even during summer vacation.

While we don’t have opportunities to tour Paris and Rome, I think that kids along the wild Klamath River have better opportunities in some ways. . . .

Seeking Community Solutions for Our Youth

November 20, 2008

Love is the Anti-Drug

Love is the Anti-Drug

We have learned that “Love is the Anti-Drug!” One of the greatest concerns is death and other serious consequences due to the impact of alcohol and other drug use by our young people. As a community we will be seeking ways to reduce access, educate, and support recovery of our young people.

An amazing group of Happy Campers came out for the first meeting and potluck dinner Thursday, Nov. 20th, 2008 at the Happy Camp High School. The second meeting was held at the Grange in December and young people volunteered for committees and action was planned. For the January 28th meeting, Kirk Andrus, Siskiyou County DA is invited. For further information, go to the Community page.
