Cam-Dietrick families to lead EP 4th parade

The Cam-Dietrick families will be the honored guests and serve as Grand Marshals for this year’s "The Bounty of America" July 4th parade in Eagle Point, which begins at 11 a.m.
    
Cam family members include: Brian and Phil, Brian’s children; Blake and  Tyler; Phil’s children, Jordan and Ehran and Phil’s grandaughter, Ashia.

On the Dietrick side are Harry and Margaret, their daughter Myra, who
is married to Brian and the mother of Blake and Tyler. Dietrick’s other
daughters are: Jenith Dietrick Chapman and her children, Jeff and Sara;
and daughter Karen and her husband, Ray Baker and their daughter, Cara,
who lives in White City.
   
At least seven of them graduated from Eagle Point High School.
   
Brian
is known as a backhoe operator and owner of Cajun, Inc. More recently
he has become involved in River Hawk boat builders, but will continue
to do some backhoe work. His wife, Myra, is an instructional assistant
working with special education students at Eagle Point Middle School. 
Their son, Blake, a 2001 graduate of EPHS is a deputy with the Jackson
County Sheriff’s Department. Tyler is in his second year at school in
Bend where he is training to become a fireman. When it comes to
donating and buying at events such as the D9 Foundation Auction and the
Eagle Point Community Association Exotic Dessert, the Brian Cam family
is ever present.
   
Phil owns Pacific Diamond and is well known
in the community as president of the Eagle Point Alumni Association
that puts on the annual alumni football game. He has always been a
strong supporter of all school-related events, especially the D9
Foundation Auction and Golf Tournament. His diamond in a glass of
champagne at the auction is always a big fund raiser. 
   
Margaret
and Harry Dietrick are long time Eagle Point residents. They came to
Eagle Point in 1967 from Weaverville, Calif. Harry worked in the woods
and drove a truck. His hobby was woodcarving, at which he was quite
skilled. Margaret is one of those people who gives and gives as a
volunteer in the community. Over the years she has been an active
member of Friends of the Eagle Point Library and very involved in Home
Extension activities and the Scholarship Dessert Committee. When it was
time to pass a bond issue for new schools in District 9, Margaret was
on the committee. She could be seen at every District 9 meeting.
Unfortunately Harry has had health issues in recent years that has cut
back on Margaret’s activities but she is slowly working her way back
into one of Eagle Point’s best known, most caring volunteers.
   
Look for the family in this year’s parade and give them a big thank you for all they do for our community.
