 All-Oregon Newsletter July 2006 



This is a special edition of the All-Oregon newsletter.  There are so many fun events planned all around the state for the 4th of July, I decided send a newsletter just listing them so you can make plans for the weekend or the 4th.  I'll send out the July newsletter next week after my computer comes back from the "doctor".  Our hot weather on Sunday was more than it can take and it literally had a melt down.  Hopefully my files can be saved, don't know yet.  Anyway, I'm so glad I kept back up copies of the email list so I could get this out to you. 

For more Oregon information and events until I get my computer back, visit
Enjoy the celebration of our freedom!
