Community Investment Opportunities
Numerous scientific studies in recent
years have proven something that we
all inherently know, that those who
give of their time in altruistic endeavors
live longer lives. Besides that, what’s
the point in living a long life if you live it
only for yourself? One of the results of
Klamath’s community-oriented spirit is a
