News release. May 22, 2002
Annual Meeting and Exhibit Preview Announced


Sherman County Historical Society, which opened their national-award-winning Museum 20 years ago, will have their annual meeting in Moro, Oregon on Sunday, June 9th at Café Moro, according to President Erling Jacobsen. Starting at 1 p.m. there will be a no-host luncheon, brief business meeting and elections. The cost of the dinner is $7.95 at the door. Please R.S.V.P. to Dorothy Benson at 541-333-2535 or the Sherman County Museum at 541-565-3232.

 

We are pleased to present two speakers: Amanda Justesen, a sophomore at Sherman High School, will speak on “The History of 4-H in the County.”   Steve Burnet, a farmer/rancher from Moro and President of the Board of Harvest States Cooperative, will speak about his “Farm Travels.”

 

 In 1978, Steve started on the board of directors of North Pacific Grain Growers, taking the vacated seat of local farmer Dean Pinkerton.  North Pacific Grain Growers became part of Harvest States in 1983 and Steve continued while serving as chairman for 5 years.  In 1998, Harvest States merged with Cenex and Steve is serving his third year as chairman.

 

Steve has traveled to Asia, Europe and Australia with other board members  and recently returned from China and Japan.  He likes to compare the various countries' farming practices, hence the topic.

 

Please join us after the meeting for a sneak preview of  the Society's new interpretive exhibit, “Cultivation, Conservation and Clothespins."

The Museum is open daily from ten until five. Visitors who wish to view the Artist Series, obtain brochures in the Sherman County Visitor Center or shop in The Museum Store are not charged admission. For more information call the Museum at 541-565-3232 or check the Museum web site www.shermanmuseum.org.
