The Columbia Gorge chapter met in February and in March. We are now up to 19 paid members. Three members attended the state convention and really enjoyed the OSU tie-in, especially having the collegiate members present. We discussed sponsoring the local “Bull Tour” again and the annual OWA auction. We have a $500 scholarship application for high school seniors that will be distributed this spring. We will again send a local teacher to SAI, partnering with the Wasco County Soil and Water Conservation District. We will meet later this spring to discuss our dessert fund-raiser in August for Vintage Dufur Days.
