Chamber of Commerce News

At the January 16, 2002 meeting of the Happy Camp Chamber of Commerce, John Gould and Judy Bushy were appointed as new board members. Congratulations, Judy and John!

The St. Patrick’s Day dinner is still in the planning stage, however the beautiful green afghan crafted by Jean Dulong is ready to be raffled! This year’s afghan is knitted in rows of varied shades of green with a dark green fringe. The effect is very attractive, and the colors are brilliant. Plan now to buy your raffle tickets. They are $1 each, or 6 for $5. A disk jockey, Vivian Jordan, has been hired for the St. Patrick’s Day dance, which will follow the dinner. The dinner and dance will be held on Saturday night, March 16 this year.

May 25-27, Memorial Day Weekend, is the time for the Bigfoot Summer Games. They will be held all along the new Bigfoot Scenic Byway from Happy Camp to Hoopa. Activities are being planned in Happy Camp, Orleans, and Hoopa. There’s a good possibility that the activities will include a bike race between Orleans and Happy Camp.

A Canoe &Kayak Family Fun Festival is being planned for the Bigfoot Summer Games/Memorial Day Weekend in Happy Camp, with races and other activites on the Klamath River between Indian Creek and Elk Creek. Planned are a backwards race, shore to shore relays, and duck races. Both inflatable and hard body watercraft are welcome.

Debbie Wilkinson has decided to take a leave of absence from Chamber of Commerce activities. Her participation and presence will be missed. Jean Dulong announced that she will soon be moving out of town – another great loss for Happy Camp. She has lived here since 1988 and has made the afghans for the St. Patrick’s Day raffles for the last three years.

Jim Gould won the logo contest for the 2002 River Run, and earned $100 in prize money. His logo features a motorcycle riding man in front of the US flag. A committee has been formed to finalize plans for the second River Run.
