items for the Community Connection food bank. Enterprise
and Joseph fire departments collected about $7,500 worth
of donations. Final results for the Wallowa and Lostine

No one in Wallowa Coun-
ty should have to go without
during Christmas.
That’s what more than 50
volunteers and a dozen orga-
nizations think, and given the
public response to the pro-
grams that provide Christmas
to those in need, it’s what a
whole lot of Wallowa County
residents believe, too.
Every year organizations
throughout the valley — from
4-H and FFCLA to VFW and
Granges — contribute in many
ways to the Elks (BPOE 1829)
Christmas Basket Program.
These organizations arrange
food drives, help wrap gifts
and deliver the goodies.
“We always get a lot of
community support on it,
that’s for sure,” said Elks Pres-
ident Donnie Rynearson.
Through the program, food
baskets containing a basic
Christmas dinner are distribut-
ed throughout the community.
Baskets are scaled to the size
of the family.
At the same time, the Tree
of Giving project, organized by
the City of Enterprise in part-
nership with the Elks, gets un-
derway. The names of children
up to age 17, seniors and people
with disabilities in care, and se-
Gwen Trice of Enterprise,
founder and executive director
of Maxville Heritage Interpre-
tive Center (MHIC), has been
nominated to be among Ore-
gon Women of Achievement.
If named, Trice would join
86 women selected for the
honor since 1985 by the Ore-
gon Commission for Women.
Nominations closed Oct. 15
and winners are expected to
be announced early next year.
Trice has devoted her life
since 2007 to the history of
the extinct multicultural log-
ging town of Maxville, 20
miles north of Wallowa.
She was nominated by
James Manning, chairman of
the Oregon Commission on
Black Affairs.
Among
her
supporters is
Mary Oberst
(Kulongoski),
Oregon’s First
Lady
from
2003-2011.
Trice
“I’ve met
many of the esteemed recip-
ients of the award, who are
political or business leaders
from the Willamette Valley,”
Oberst wrote in an endorse-
ment letter.
“I believe it’s time to rec-
ognize the amazing achieve-
ments of a woman from
Oregon’s northeast corner —
Wallowa County — who is
rede¿ning the history that we
all think we know.”
Oregon Historical Soci-
ety Executive Director Kerry
Tymchuk also endorsed Trice.
“I don’t often get to say
‘this person changed Oregon
history,’ but I can say that about
Gwen,” Tymchuck wrote.
“Speci¿cally, her work
has changed the way we view
Oregon history, particular-
ly Oregon’s logging history.
