Crater Lake group may not meet

The Friends of Crater Lake was set to have its annual meeting at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at Crater Lake National Park’s Community House on the Rim. But if the federal government remained shut down by the end of today, the meeting was to be canceled and rescheduled.

The organization was to select three new board members from a list of candidates from the surrounding communities. It also planned a silent auction, screening of the new film “Crater Lake — Into the Deep,” which will be featured at the park’s visitor’s center, and a talk from park Superintendent Craig Ackerman.

Crater Lake National Park remains closed due to the federal government shutdown that began Tuesday.
