FEATURED SPEAKER:  Bing Bingham of “The Dusty Dog Café.”

Bing Bingham is the creator behind the imaginary Dusty Dog Cafe, based on a small-town restaurant in the rural American West where far-flung locals gather over an endless cup to swap stories and catch-up on each other’s lives.

He’s a trained, performing storyteller who’s retired from freelance journalism, working with print, photography and radio production, for the last 25 years. During that time, his specialty was in agriculture and rural issues.

His credits extend from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and National Public Radio to numerous national, regional and local magazines, newspapers, websites and radio stations.

These days he’s an author and blogger… http://dustydogcafe.com/

JCHS Establishes New Endowment with OCF

The Historical Society has created an endowment in the “Endowment Partners” program of the Oregon Community Foundation.  The new JCHS endowment will produce a stable yearly income, to be used as it grows to help pay for the Society’s expanding annual operations. According to JCHS Director Jerry Ramsey, “We are really gratified to be able to invest with Oregon Community Foundation, and through our partnership with OCF, take advantage of their comprehensive financial and fund-raising advisory facilities. We have started a JCHS Endowment Fund, seeking donations and pledges to make our assets grow.”
