FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK:  

Autumn….the season of change! Mother Nature changes into her bright oranges and reds for the occasion. Flower beds change from the pinks and purples of summer to the gold, rust and yellow beds of mums. School begins prompting households change of routines to accommodate homework, sports, and bonfires. Here at OJHS, we also have gone through a change. As you can see on the left side border, we welcome a new trustee, Sharon Newton, and we have also said our parting thank you to trustees Linda Wise and Dave Yenrick.
As the new President, I want to say my personal “Thank You” to Connie Isbell for her many years of working diligently to improve the society’s presence in the community while making certain that our motto, “Preserving Our Past, Bringing History to Life” was in each decision made and promoted by the board of trustees.
I find myself in an honored and humbling position. I am excited about what the future holds for OJHS...our new program for the First Families is blossoming, our involvement with the Oregon Fire and Rescue’s new museum at the Senior Center is enriching the community, while we contin-ue our ongoing events local residents look forward to attending. I will do my utmost to help lead what I believe is one of the area’s most valuable assets.
Since you have received this newsletter, you are most likely one of our valued members. To you I say, “Get involved, volunteer, visit the campus, and bring a friend to one of our up-coming events. Thank you for your confidence in us and financial support.” I look forward to serving you.
