Christmas Cheer and the Foresters Fund

A Foresters Fund grant was awarded to the Umpqua Chapter to buy Forestry equipment for the Alternative Dillard High School new Forestry program.  A section of the grant was to purchase forestry equipment to also allow the students to generate their own funds to benefit their program.  A wreath maker along with wires and needed material were purchased.  The group has sold over 100 wreaths!  The students had fun and have worked hard to bring cheer this year.  They donated a wreath to SAF and a drawing was done at the December OSAF executive meeting.  Ed Sheppard was the winner of this award.  Thank you for supporting this program with benefits for many years to come!
