St. Paul Mission Historical Society Event

6 Oct

St. Paul, Oregon has a long history not just of farming but also of family, friends, and traditions.

I have been asked to come and speak during the annual meeting of the St. Paul Mission Historical Society this year (below is a copy of their newsletter that holds all the details).

I’m very excited about this chance and have been thinking about what to talk about for awhile. I think I’m narrowing in on a little of my family history here as farmers, along with some good stories about how the women before me may not have had the title as farmer, but worked just as hard.

So I would like to extend an invite to anyone who is interested to come and say hi. All I ask is that you keep in mind that I’m a farmer not a public speaker. But I’m hoping it will be worth your time to come and learn about where I come from.

Here are a few of the details:  The Annual Meeting of the St. Paul Mission Historical Society will be held on Sunday, October 19, 2014 at 11:30 a.m. at the St. Paul Fire District office located in St. Paul. A light brunch will be provided at no charge. In order to provide an accurate head count, please RSVP to mernst@mtangel.net or 503.845.6208 and leave a message.
