History Camp 2010 and Governor Whatsizname.

Gov. Gibbs: The Second Governor of the state of Oregon lived on Chehalem Mountain on the Yamhill County side. That is why we were on Gibbs Road! The schoolhouse we were at is called "Gibbs School." Also the graveyard we visited is called "Gibbs Cemetery."

The Bizarre Geology of Sherwood-Tualatin!

September 15, 2010-- Wednesday Evening at 7:00PM at the Tualatin Public Library: Rick Thompson, incoming president of the Lower Columbia Chapter, Ice Age Floods Institute, will speak on the effects of the cataclysmic floods on NW Oregon and SW Washington. Here is a chance to learn first hand from an expert what we need to know about the Missoula-Ice Age Floods thousands of years ago and their impact on today's land use decisions, open space, building, flood waters, channels and your own back yard

This program is a first time partnership between the Tualatin Historical Society, the City of Tualatin and the Lower Columbia Chapter, Ice Age Floods Institute to educate the many officials who want and need to know the continuing impacts of what made the Tualatin, Willamette and Yamhill River Valleys what they are today.

I hope you can make it and please pass this on to anyone you think might be interested. (Signed) President Polly
