Celebrating Oregon's 150th Birthday!

At right, in Salem February 14: Horace Greeley and Lilly Morgan bump into each other at the Oregon Convention Center. At left, in Portland February 15: The banjo-in-hand Sherwood Trail Guide is sketched by a little girl at the Oregon Historical Society.Everything went well during this very significant weekend in Oregon, except that a Native American lady from Grande Rond told Mr. Horace Greeley that she did not think very highly of him. We failed to get a snapshot of her, but Mr. Greeley and the Trail Guide did manage to capture a moment with Miss Teenage Oregon. The poor girl is, of course, standing a few fractions of an inch closer to the banj0 picker than the newspaper man. Wouldn't you say so, Mr. Greeley?

Subject: THANK YOU!!!
Hi All,

Thank you so much for your historical displays at the Ball on Saturday night. The event wouldn't have been as successful without your displays. I loved all that you brought, and I am sorry I didn't have time to get around to see everything up close. I will have to stop by your heritage center to get a longer, closer look. I got a lot of kudos for how everything worked so well together...the re-enactors, the displays, the band, the dancers etc.

Thanks also Sherwood for bringing the banjo player. What a great addition he was!

I hope you all got some food and got a lot of attention at the Ball.

I hope to work with all of you again someday.
