Update on Portland Area Meetings

On Wednesday, March 9, 2010, the fifth SAQA Oregon Portland area meeting was held at the Lakewood Center, Lake Oswego following the Columbia Fiberarts Guild meeting. There were 22 people present.

Georgia and Laura shared with the group that Jean Wells Keenan of Sisters and Betty Davis-Daggett of Portland will become the new SAQA Oregon co-representatives. They will begin training for this task immediately and phase into their new roles over the next several months.

Georgia and Laura also announced there will be an "Oregon, State of Diversity 2012" exhibit. Georgia and Laura have volunteered to chair that project.

The group decided to survey the membership of SAQA Oregon to obtain information about what members want from having an active chapter in Oregon. Betty Colburn and Sue Karstad volunteered to create and disseminate an online survey using. When the survey arrives in your email, please take a few minutes to respond.

Because the June 8,2011 Columbia Fiberart Guild meeting will be in the evening, the group decided to hold a dinner meeting at a restaurant before the CFG meeting. Betty Colburn has arranged for the use of the “party room” at Goose Hollow Inn, 1927 S.W. Jefferson Street, This will be a primarily social event. We will meet at 4:00pm in order to be served and finished eating by 6:30pm. Goose Hollow Inn is very near to First United Methodist Church where the CFG meeting is to start at 7:00pm.Please call or email Betty Colburn 503-327-90334 or by June 3 so we can give Goose Hollow a head count.
