League’s Birthday Celebration

Join us for LWV Umpqua Valley’s birthday celebration on Feb. 13.

Thursday, Feb. 13th at Noon to 2PM
Roseburg Library in the South Umpqua Room

The actual birthdate for the national League is Feb. 14, 1920.

Although our League was not in existence as soon as the national League was, Roseburg was not far behind. Although not officially organized until 1961 (see our history), Roseburg was active in state League affairs and with the national League. In 1989 LWV Umpqua Valley became a valid 501(c)(4) tax exempt organization.

This year we celebrate along with hundreds of other local Leagues around the country the centennial birthday of the League and the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment.

Please come to celebrate whether you are a member or not!

Come for cake, some history, some discussion, ask questions, and enjoy your neighbors.

For more information, call [541] [672] [1914].

We are actively seeking gardens to include in next year’s Garden Tour.

The date is not quite set yet, but you can expect another glorious tour of hidden gardens in the Roseburg area, delightful music and lovely unique art all provided by local artisans.

Our Garden Tour Team is focusing on the Wilbur and Sutherlin areas for Garden Tour 2017. Do you have a garden you would like to share? It is so much fun to participate! Let us know if you are thinking about this, or if you know of a garden that needs to be seen!

Thanks so much!

Garden Tour Beauty

The 5th Annual Garden Tour sponsored by the LWV Umpqua Valley was a huge success. Many commented on the beauty of the gardens on display.

Many thanks to the generous and gracious gardeners who allowed the community to “drop by” between 10AM and 5PM on Saturday, June 11, 2016. The gardens showed extreme care, creativity, and thoughtfulness.

Thank you to the artists who displayed their works and to the musicians who entertained the garden admirers.

We hope you all had a great time. Thank you for coming!

Here’s just a few photos of some of the lovely places in Douglas County, Oregon.
