Century Celebration 2020

We will continue to celebrate our 100th Anniversary throughout this year even though we will do it together via social distancing.

We hope you had a chance to see our Roseburg Public Library display before the Library closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak . The display celebrates the century of achievement by the League and women all over the United States. 2020 also celebrates the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.

“Someone struggled for your Right to Vote. Use it!”

Note the wonderful volunteers, too. Pat Sherman, far right, is the lead on the Century Celebration Committee. Next to her is Sherry Couron, and on the left is Beverly Paulson.

We look forward to the Library re-opening, but we also are very aware of the risk involved in opening too soon. Please stay safe and stay home.


How we’re celebrating ~

Enjoy a historical PowerPoint presentation that was shown at our October 2019 meeting. And here’s the script that goes with the presentation, written by Pat Sherman, our intrepid committee chair.

The Umpqua Valley League has joined with the Umpqua Valley Quilter’s Guild as a silver sponsor for the 2021 Quilt Show. Sadly, this year’s Umpqua Valley Quilt Show has been canceled. However, we remain very excited about our partnership with the Quilt Guild.
