Columbia Gorge Chapter Fall Update
Fall is here and that means the Columbia Gorge chapter is back to holding meetings after the summer harvest break. Our fall meeting was held Tuesday, September 12 in The Dalles, with 5 members and 2 guests present. Our chapter’s college scholarship winner, Emily Gallegos of Hood River, has registered for classes at Linn-Benton Community College so a check is headed her way. Sherman teacher Piper Jones attended Summer Ag Institute on a scholarship from the chapter, and gave a great presentation about how much she learned during the week. Our chapter had exhibits at the Sherman and Gilliam County Fairs. We are discussing adding an annual fundraiser by doing a steak feed at the Dufur Vintage Days each August. Next meeting will be a fall social to “bring a friend” and invite potential new members to check out OWA.
