a note from bev

  It is a pleasure and an honor to represent you as your club President. I am looking forward to another year of growth and friendship. I am open to any and all suggestions you may have. By working together, we can significantly change the lives of so many in Oregon City and surrounding areas.

While I honor our service men and women (long family history) and know that their needs are great, I am switching our focus to children for the next two years. We are letting so many down. Their voices aren't heard. Poverty, hunger, abuse and homelessness are just a few of my concerns and I hope yours as well. They are our future. How can we help? I welcome your ideas.
