 All-Oregon Newsletter January 2006

   

 

I’ve realized that if I don’t send this newsletter now, you won’t have one for January.  That is not the way I planned to start 2006.  I have been scrambling to get the new events for this year on the web site.  It is a large task because I have never moved All-Oregon into the automated world of web design and still do all the input manually.

Because I want you to have things to do on these wet winter days, I’m going to make this an event only newsletter.  Next month I will go back to the old format.  You can’t even get this information on the web site yet!  Enjoy.
