Siletz Tribes supporting programs to connect our youth to the wider world

CSC youth/Salmon population research

As this photo depicts, a grant from The Siletz Tribe allows youth crews from Community Services Consortium to participate in smolt salmon population research along the Oregon Coast.

A generous grant of more than $4,500 from the Siletz Tribal Contribution Fund has enabled 36 Lincoln County youth to participate in vital natural resources restoration projects. The Lincoln County Natural Resource Crew program, run by Community Services Consortium, uses funds to buy supplies for projects that also provided 9,952 combined hours of job training and educational support to local youth.

The youth carried out a number of vital environmental projects, including planting in damaged riparian zones, seed gathering, supporting Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife on projects aiding threatened species, creating community garden spaces and trail building and maintenance.

Many thanks to the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians for providing such a huge benefit to both the youth and environment of Lincoln County!

Community Services Consortium (CSC) is a state-designated Community Action Agency serving Linn, Benton and Lincoln counties with housing, nutrition, economic stability, and educational assistance programs since 1980.

To support this project or any of CSC’s valuable programs and services, visit our website at www.communityservices.us. Donations may be made through our website or mailed to our main office: Community Services Consortium, 245 Broadalbin Street, Suite 2A, Albany, OR 97321.

Really tight parking expected at Toledo Pool – use lower lot!

Information provided by City of Toledo
Trench digging operations at the Toledo Public Library and Swimming Pool parking lots will make parking a major headache for those who read and swim. The trenches will soon be the new home of new fiber optic cable that will connect the swimming pool to the City’s Fiber Optic Data Network.

Visitors to the Pool, Library and Arcadia park are encouraged to park in the lower parking lot below the Library if possible to save the few spots next to the facilities for those with limited mobility. When approaching the buildings visitors are advised to take notice of barricades and caution tape. Parents, keep a close eye on your children.

The reason for all the construction commotion is that a long-needed security camera system for the area behind the pool building will be installed. This part of the complex is very difficult to secure due to lack of visibility. The city has been saving for several years to install a system like this at the Pool, Library, Arcadia Park and the Skate Park. The system will be controlled through the City’s existing fiber network.

Aquatics/Recreation Manager Joe Andrews says the city can add additional cameras, including inside the pool building, in the near future as funds become available. Other improvements will eventually be connected to the city wide phone system and offer consistent public Wi-Fi internet access.

The first step in this technology upgrade was launched through a grant from the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund. The grant issued in 2010 allowed for the purchase of a laptop computer and software that has allowed the department to greatly improve operations. “That grant really got the ball rolling,” said Andrews.

Siletz Tribe grants top $9,500,000 in charitable giving since 1995!

The Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund distributed $126,729 to 48 organizations on May 4 as it continued its quarterly donations to non-profit organizations. The checks were presented at Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City, Ore.

The Siletz Tribe has made contributions through employment, monetary donations and cooperative measures to the Siletz community, Lincoln County and the state of Oregon. The seven-member charitable fund advisory board has distributed more than $7.4 million since its inception in 2001.

Overall, the Tribe has honored its tradition of sharing within the community by distributing more than $9.5 million through the charitable fund and other Tribal resources. Chinook Winds has donated nearly $2.3 million in cash and fund-raising items since it opened in 1995. The casino also provides in-kind donations of convention space for various fund-raisers as well as technical support, advertising and manpower for many events.

Friends of the Siletz Library gives big “Thank You” to Siletz Charitable Trust


Wanda Hess, Siletz Public Library
Provided by Friends of the Siletz Public Library

Thank you Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund for the grant that helps pay for our liability insurance. Without this generous grant the Siletz Valley Friends of the Library would not be able to use our wonderful volunteers. These monies enable us to use our volunteers in many different areas of the library building and library grounds. We utilize our volunteers in many ways, i.e., alphabetizing the books, repairing and covering our old and new books, helping with setting up the display cases, cleaning the bathroom facilities, weeding the flower beds, power washing the sidewalks around the building. We also use volunteers to plan and prepare for events we have during the year; such as: our library birthday party and our ongoing fund raising events for the upkeep and maintenance of the library building and grounds. Thank you so much again, we greatly appreciate your help with this endeavor.
