Lane Chapter Spring Update

Lane Chapter Spring Update

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who is working on keep things going in these strange and uncertain times.

Here’s what our Chapter has been up to.

New Spring crops are being planted and coming up.  To me that means it’s time to check the crop ID signs.  We have around 50 crop ID signs up around Lane County.  Some are doubled on the metal holders so you can see what the crop is going in both directions.

OWA supported OWIT by buying a table at the Oregon Women in Timber auction and dinner.  OWIT’s proceeds from the auction went to their statewide education program, Talk about Trees.  Lane County Chapter had 4 members attend with their spouses.  This was the second year I have attended, and I am blown away by how organized these women are. Thank you to OWA for buying a table and thank you OWIT for a great dinner and entertaining evening.

We had a few members (Sarah Puls, Kelsy Pimm and I) attend the OWA State Convention in Corvallis.  The tours on Friday were very fun and informative.  Thank you, Linn-Benton it was a great Convention and we had a wonderful time.

Our March meeting was in preparation for Ag in the Class.  We had around 69 classrooms that we were starting to schedule.  It is very sad that we can’t go into the classrooms this year.  Thank you, Jessica Jansen, for coming and talking about the book and project.  We will be ready for next year.

This year’s “Function 4 Junction” has, unfortunately, been canceled and will take place in again in 2021.

Our April and May meetings are cancelled.

Happy Spring from Lane County.  We will get through this.


Mary Howarth, Lane County OWA President
