Eastern Oregon Spring Update

Eastern Oregon Spring Update

We have just wrapped up our 4th annual tractor driving certification course and we are happy to say it was another successful year. We want to thank Morrow County Grain Growers for the use of their facility, our instructor Daniel Bolen, our members who cooked and prepared food, and of course our family members and other volunteers that made this event possible.

We feel it is very important to remind farmers, ranchers and teens who are looking to work in these operations that a tractor driving certification is required by Oregon Law until you have your driver’s license.

We are also preparing for our spring membership social that will take place May 5th at Roosters in Pendleton. If anyone would like to join us you are more than welcome and we would encourage you to tell your friends in the local area.

We have recently changed our monthly meeting from the second Tuesday to the third Tuesday of the month to accommodate other volunteer projects and meetings. Meetings are held at the Amstad Farms office in Echo.

We hope everyone is enjoying the spring weather and that we will see you all at the Annual Auction.

Josie J. Miles, President
