Dec. 15 for anyone to submit a maximum of three digital photos.   A
multimedia show produced in the form of an electronic slide show,
complete with a locally-produced soundtrack, will be shown in the
Tamástslikt theater on Jan. 13. The photos should be personal in
showing family and friends celebrating the culture of the famous
Round-Up and the tribal component that makes it unique. 

The photos must be sent electronically to
Randall.Melton at tamastslikt.org.  Up to three photos may be submitted
by any individual.  The photos should be of high quality and clearly
capture the essence of the anniversary celebration. Submission of photos
will be deemed as permission by the sender for their inclusion in the

privileges thereof.  The lender retains ownership of the digital photos

Poster artist Paul Lanquist will talk at 1 p.m. Dec. 12 about how his
ability to capture iconic places and people helped him document historic
and contemporary scenes from Lewis and Clark National Historical Park
onto several new park posters. This program, sponsored by the Lewis &
Clark National Park Association, will be held in the Netul River Room of
Fort Clatsop’s Visitor Center. Other activities will be held
throughout the day as part of the park’s annual holiday open house.
Admission to the park is free all day. Park hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Lanquist calls himself an illustrator “who blends classic storyteller
with high technology” to create his art which is influenced by
illustrators working in the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s who used colors
and design to communicate “in a straightforward way.” He has created
more than 1,000 destination posters for sites such as the Boeing Museum
of Flight and the Gettysburg Museum. He has also created posters created
for Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. 

Other activities Dec. 12 at Fort Clatsop include a flag raising,
volleys of flintlock gunfire, ranger talks about the 1805 Christmas at
Fort Clatsop, fat rendering and tallow candle making, and a flag
retiring. For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471.
