SMS participates in special Heritage Fair celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Timberline Lodge
(Government Camp, OR) The SMS was honored of participate in a very special Heritage Fair at Timberline Lodge this past Labor Day. It was a beautiful day, so the public showed up in droves to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the dedication of the Lodge. President Franklin D. Roosevelt gave the original speech to dedicate the Lodge back in 1937. On this occasion, Senator Jeff Merkley gave the keynote address, and a concert followed in the evening featuring a tribute to the songs of Woody Guthrie. The SMS staffed a booth to share information about our work and the history of fire lookouts in the Pacific Northwest. The Fair was well-attended and generated several new members.
