Your Oregon Stories for November 2018

Dear Friend,

With the holiday season officially underway, it's time to kick back, relax, and celebrate all that we've accomplished for Oregon in 2018! Since the most wonderful time of the year is also the busiest time of the year, we're keeping this edition of Oregon Stories short and sweet. We'll be back at the end of December with program updates and a year-in-review, and you can always catch the latest news on our social media--simply follow the links at the bottom of this email.

Wishing you the happiest of holidays,
Russ Hoeflich, Executive Director
Russ & the 1000 Friends Team

As always, you can contribute directly through our website--and membership makes a great last-minute gift!
