"Traditions – Alaska is steeped in them. Cordova has its fair share, but a favorite is Cordova District Fishermen United’s Senior Salmon Day.

Copper River salmon drift fishermen donate hundreds of Copper River sockeye each year, in times both lean and plenty. Local processors and community volunteers pitch in too, because even in Cordova, home to the Copper River fishing fleet, there are many households without access to those prized fish.Luckily, fishermen are a generous bunch, and CDFU helps to harness that generosity by hosting an annual sidewalk giveaway for community elders age 60 and up."
