Bell Ringers Return To Jackson Stores

November 27, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Salvation Army

The familiar Salvation Army bells will be heard outside Jackson area stores again beginning Friday as the local Salvation Army Chapter launches its annual Christmas fund-raiser.  Steve Kallin of the Rotary Luncheon Club is organizing this year’s event and has been recruiting bell-ringers to be on hand at each of four locations on the Friday’s and Saturdays between now and Christmas.  Kallin says the bell-ringers will be at four locations:  Albertson’s, K-Mart, Smiths and Whole Grocer.  However, Kallin says “We have a need, especially this first weekend for bell ringers both Friday and Saturday; and if you don’t have time to volunteer [as a] bell ringer, you can still support by donating at one of the red kettles.” As always, Kallin says funds raised in Jackson Hole remain in Jackson Hole to help those in need.  Last year, the Salvation Army Kettle campaign here raised just under $20,000 – still insufficient to cover all the needs seen in Teton County.  Kallin says anyone willing to ring a bell for a two-hour shift can sign up at RotaryJacksonHole.com

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]
  • Enzi Opens Campaign HQ in Cheyenne - April 17, 2014
    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
