La Pine says goodbye to a local fire captain. Approximately 300 people showed up at La Pine High School for a 2 p.m. memorial. It was a mix of firefighters and citizens. Firefighters showed up from all over the state of Oregon to say goodbye to Fire Captain James Palmer, 37. Palmer was remembered for helping others; for being the drummer in a rock band, and most importantly, as a family man who would always put his kids first.  A former chaplain of the La Pine Fire Department who is now in the Albany area, says he watched Palmer’s career and he was a pleasure to work with. After the Saturday afternoon memorial, a procession of fire trucks from as far away as Baker City rolled past the La Pine Fire Station in a silent procession. The sign outside the station said goodbye to Captain Palmer and that he will be missed. He was killed a week ago Friday in a two-car accident on Highway 97.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
