Devices such as the 4G LTE iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S 5 can help simplify and enhance our lives, and U.S. Cellular wants to show Medford residents the tips and tricks of using these devices to the fullest.
Bring your family, friends and neighbors to the public tour of the fantastical gingerbread creations of the 12th annual GingerBread Jubilee at the Collier Center.

Hours are 10 am to 6 pm Saturday through Monday, Nov. 22-24, and admission is $3 per person.
The GingerBread Jubilee is one of the Rogue Valley’s most unique benefit auctions and favorite holiday celebrations. Proceeds from the multi-day event make it possible for the Craterian to bring national and international performing artists to our community and to provide our stage as a one-of-a-kind resource for countless organizations and individuals. Your support of the GingerBread Jubilee will make the holiday spirit last year ‘round.
