Chetco Grange 765 will host a free program featuring the Oregon Old Time Fiddlers Association (OOTFA) from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29.

Imagine a primitive hospital with no plumbing, CT scan or X-ray machines; equipment that is sterilized over coal and steam, donated surgery supplies and one doctor for 450 patients. 

It is located in a war zone with daily bombings; the local residents struggle to grow food for fear of being killed.

It was a better-than-usual result for the Winchuck Volunteers’ chicken barbecue at the Winchuck Fire Hall last weekend.

The organization, which supports the Winchuck Fire Department, raised $5,400 after selling out its 500 pieces of chicken that were put on the grill over an alder wood fire, said Tom Taylor, Winchuck Volunteers treasurer.

In recent years, the barbecue has averaged raising $4,500. Although the event raised more than previous years, expenses to put on the event were also higher, Taylor said. In addition, the Winchuck Fire Hall also had a few extra expenses, such as having to replace an underground power line to the water well.
