Oregon Summer Convention News:

We had a great Summer Convention in April. We held an auction, at which we made about $2800. We had our table selling some new items, stretch bracelet, a cancer awareness scarf, and our new supply if butterflies, plus the usual cookbooks, grab bags and our Betty Hise jewelry. We made around $1200 from the table. After taking in donations and the donation of $5,000 from ENF, we came to a grand total of $15,191.72. We gave our donation of $7,500 each to OHSU and MSTI.

We were privileged to have Grand Lodge First Lady, Jane Helsel, in attendance as well as Diane Kile of Idaho.

In October several of us attended a talk by Dr. Brian Druker of the Knight Cancer Institute at OSHU, on “The End of Cancer is Within Reach.” I have a DVD of his talk
if anyone would like to borrow, it is about 40 min. long, please contact me. It is worth the time
to see.

National Convention News:
We had a table at National Convention held in Portland in July, and did quite well.
