Salmon given to firefighters in appreciation

Letter to the Editor


While I was packaging up some recently smoked salmon, I thought, “Why not take it to the staging area in Nespelem and see if these folks might just like this little snack?”

Wow, did they. I think before I was out of the parking area, most of 50 bags were being devoured.

With no more fish to smoke, Frank Thomas suggested a trip to the net pens on Rufus Woods to solicit a triploid donation.

They really stepped up to the plate. All told, pens manager Bill Clark of Pacific Sea Food donated over 260 pounds of these great smoking triploid. A big thanks to this community-minded company. Also, I’d like to thank our local Safeway store, as manager Lisa Correnti made a donation of the necessary brining supplies.

Ross and Carol Clune, who smoked and bagged at least 100 bags, Rob and Glo Carroll, who help distribute as far away as the Tunk Grange. My thanks to all the above and a special thanks to the those firefighters who are still battling these fires as we approach the end of September.
