Salmon in Laramie, Wyoming!

1000 pounds of frozen salmon waiting patiently for a new home.

There’s a vast difference between the temperature behind the Medicine Bow Natural Food Coop in Laramie, Wyoming, and that of equatorial Uganda.  That’s good, because 1000 pounds of frozen salmon arrived on December 13 from Misty Fjord Seafood for a One School at a Time fundraising sale in Laramie and had to remain frozen until pickup time in the late afternoon.  
The twice-a-year sale is popular in Laramie, where fresh and delicious salmon is hard to come by.  Ellen Axtmann, a friend of One School director, Bay Roberts, gathers pre-orders for the fish, which is shipped from Seattle by another friend of Bay’s, Fran Kaul, the fisherwoman who owns Misty Fjord.  Fran catches the salmon in Bristol Bay, Alaska.  It’s a great web of connections and nets substantial income for One School.
Speaking of income, One School at a Time could really use your support!  Your tax deductible, end of the year contribution will help us move forward on new projects in 2013.  You can donate right now online at THIS SITE, or mail a check to:
