CHANGE—is there any other word that can create such opposite emotions? We can equally look forward to or dread change. It seems that the ones we look forward to are the happy ones—an upcoming wedding (if you are part of the bridal couple); the birth of a child/grandchild/great-grandchild; the purchase of a new home; a new job, a new local business.

Those that are dreaded invariably are the ones that cause stress or grief—an upcoming wedding (if you don’t approve of the person being chosen); the relocation necessitated by a new job; the loss of a beloved; a business being built in "your backyard" and . . .

 Here at Oregon-Jerusalem Historical Society it seems that we are always changing something!! Decisions are not made lightly or unthinkingly. We are fortunate to have a very pro-active Board of Trustees who are willing to think "outside of the box". No changes are made without consideration or discussion by the Board of Trustees. The betterment of our cherished historical society and the positive affect on the most people is always the prime consideration.


As you peruse the articles in the Brandville Bits you will find several instances of proposed changes. Please keep in mind that these proposals are taken very seriously and your input is welcome and encouraged. If you have an opinion and would like to speak with me personally, my phone number is always listed in each issue.
