  • The Committed Alliance to Strays is looking for photographers who can help the nonprofit animal welfare group take photos of donated artwork it wants to sell online as part of a fundraising effort.
    More than 100 paintings and other works by late Rogue Valley art teacher Carol Rose were on display for several weeks at a temporary gallery in downtown Medford that closed last week. Now the group would like to display photos of the art online as it searches for another temporary gallery space, but it needs people who can photograph the art.
    Rose's husband, Bill Rose, donated his late wife's artwork to C.A.T.S. The couple spent many years helping rescue stray cats, and the donation was aimed at furthering that effort.
    The shelter on Ross Lane provides medical care and adoption services for stray felines.
    The Web art gallery will be posted at www.kittensandcats.org.
    For information about the shelter or to donate time or a space to display Rose's paintings, call 541-779-2916.
    U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley will hold a Medford town hall meeting at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 5, at the Carnegie Building, 413 W. Main St.
    Merkley will update attendees on his work Washington, D.C., and take questions and comments.
    He pledged to hold town hall meetings in every Oregon county each year while serving in the Senate. This will be his 187th town hall meeting as a U.S. senator, he reported in a news release.
    The Boy Scouts of Medford Troop 7 will collect Christmas trees from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 5, at the Skin Cancer & Dermatology Center of Southern Oregon, 492 Murphy Road.
    In addition to that drop point, troop members will provide curbside collection along a route. Homes on the route have received fliers, organizers said.
    Collected trees will be mulched and donated, troop leaders said. Cash donations to the troop will be accepted. For more information, call 541-621-9460.
    Trees may also be dropped off for free at Biomass One's woody debris yard, which is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. Take Highway 62 to Avenue G, then turn left. The yard is a half-mile farther on the right.

    All information, including bylaws, guidelines and the application, is available online at www.rvgrowersmarket.com.
