Because of the generous support from our Community it is our policy to assist those who support the Salmon Festival plus Community Charities. Last year we assisted 40 other community groups through the FREE use of our assets and volunteer help with their event set-up and tear down, The savings to the groups was $34,751.00 which helped their charitable cause and our Community. This also helped the businesses in our Community as the groups did not have to seek sponsorships to rent the items. For our policy on use of Salmon Festival assets please go to our Application Page
