The annual fair will take place Wednesday, July 15 – Sunday, July 19. The first time food vendor will sell local steamer clams, corn on the cob and soft drinks.The non-profit is hoping to gain exposure through the fair, which is attended by over 200,000 people throughout the five days. The booth will be staffed by volunteers within the Salmon Defense community including the Chairman of the board, Bob Whitener.“Salmon Defense is excited to do a food booth at Capital Lakefair. The Squaxin Island Indian Tribe has donated manilla clams and there will be corn on the cob which will make this, both, a delicious and healthy food option for fairgoers,” explained Whitener.The proceeds from the fair will go toward the advancement of Salmon Defense’s mission to “protect and defend Pacific Northwest salmon and salmon habitat.”Salmon Defense was founded in 2003 by the 20 Western Washington Treaty Tribes. The purpose of forming the organization was to provide an independent nonprofit entity focused solely on the welfare of our region’s salmon and their habitat.For more information on Salmon Defense please visit their Facebook page or www.salmondefense.org.
