just by shopping with your Fred Meyer Rewards Card!


Fred Meyer is donating $2.5 million per year to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, based on where their customers tell them to give. Here’s how the program works:
  • Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to Josephine County Historical Society at www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards.  You can search for us by our name or by our non-profit number 94511.
  • Then, every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you are helping Josephine County Historical Society earn a donation!
  • You still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates, just as you do today.
  • If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.
  • For more information, please visit www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards.

Josephine County Historical Society

Hundreds of historic photos are for sale through the Josephine County Historical Society, and now you can view and purchase them online!

These historic records of our early discoverers and settlers make great wall displays when framed, and cover everything from gold panning, dredging, arrastras, and mines to railroads, historic buildings, sites and signs, towns, dams, bridges, ferries, sawmills, pioneer families and schools.

They are available through several different mediums; printed black & white photos, mailed to you on a disc or emailed.  Most of the catalogue is available for viewing online, and can be ordered and paid for online, or you can print out an order form to send with your check.  Shipping is free!

Just click on the photo above to see what's available.
