Happy New Year, Happy Camp!!
Over sixty Happy Campers made their way out of snow covered dwellings to attend the New Year’s Day Community Dinner in Happy Camp!
There hasn’t been a New Years Dinner in the past, but the Christmas Holiday Dinner was snowed out. Not only was a heavy snowfall of three feet covering Happy Camp but the heavy snow brought down trees and power lines causing 1,246 customers of Pacific Power to be without electricity, some for more than a week.
Although School closed a day early as snow day was called for Friday December 21st, the students have been on winter break since that time and have not missed more school.
At the dunner I met Debbie Hixson and her family from Klamath River who have been helpful in providing resources to the happy Camp Family Resource Center since the storm.
The community greatly appreciated Pacific Power and other workers who have been working 24/7 to get power restored in homes and businesses in out area.
