Off To A Good Start

Thank you to everyone who attended our first membership meeting of the year last night, Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017.

The meeting of about 30 was interesting and fun in our new meeting room at the Umpqua Valley Arts Center, 1624 West Harvard Avenue, Roseburg. We had great speakers followed by a delicious ice cream social.

Betty Sparks, a new member, native Oregonian, and retired education teacher, spoke about kidney disease and how prevalent it is. She herself needs a kidney transplant and is on the list for one. However, many are also in line, nationally over 122,000 people. Betty explained how diabetes and high blood pressure contribute to the likelihood of the disease. In other words, we are all susceptible. For more information here are a few resources:

The Blue Zones Project representatives for the effort in Douglas County also spoke. Juliete Palenshus and Jessica Moore informed us about the project which is also seeking supporters and volunteers. Bluezones-tshirts.jpgThe three-year goal is to support well-being improvements in multiple areas here in Douglas County. For more information, see the website and contact Juliete Palenshus by emailing her.

They’ll even give you a t-shirt!

Welcome to new members who joined last night!

Here’s some familiar faces of a few of our lovely members:

We hope you did not miss this meeting, but in case you did here are some photos.

Special thanks go to LWVOR President Norman Turrill. Norman spoke to League members and visitors on Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2015 here in Roseburg, Oregon.

Norman has vast experience in the League as he has been a member for 40 years. The League opened membership to men around 1974, and now has many male members.

Subjects that we learned more about included campaign finance reform, gun safety, education, and healthcare issues in Oregon. The League has positions on those subjects and they can be found here.

Thanks to all members and visitors who joined us for the evening. Thank you, Members, for providing refreshments. Welcome to new members who joined that evening!
