1,000 Expected at 30th Annual Auction

More than 120 volunteers will stage the 30th annual Oregon Women for Agriculture auction Saturday evening at the Linn County Fair & Expo Center.

The organization, whose goal is to support and educate the public about the benefits of agriculture, hopes to gross $110,000 to help fund numerous statewide projects, according to President Debbie Crocker of Monroe.

“More than 900 people attended last year’s auction,” she said. “Our most recent ticket count has already topped 800. It’s fun to enjoy the great supper and fellowship with fellow ag people.”

 Auctioneer Mac Stewart will offer several new items this year, including a vacation package to a condominium in Hawaii, four 4-day passes to the Bi-Mart Willamette Country Music Festival; tickets to a Tim McGraw concert in Portland; and .17 caliber Henry Golden Boy lever-action rifle.

“We also have a very nice package from the Inn at Diamond Woods near Monroe,” Crocker said. “The lodge sleeps eight with four master suites. Golf is included, as is a tour of the Benton-Lane Winery.”

Crocker said this year’s Fund-a-Need project will sponsor truck wraps promoting agriculture. Shelly Boshart Davis said last year’s Fund-a-Need raised enough money to add five truck companies and six trucks. There are now eight companies and nine wrapped trucks in the program.

The wraps promote the theme, “Almost Everything Starts on a Farm or Ranch.”

Oregon Women For Ag Truck Wraps

OWA has expanded their agricultural awareness projects to include vehicle based media! OWA’s signature billboard “Almost Everything Starts on a Farm or Ranch” is now available as a “truck wrap” available for semi tankers, van box trailers and grain trailers traveling major highways and interstates.  According to public purpose statistics about 1 trillion people travel the American interstate annually and in America 72% of consumers know nothing about where their food comes from.

Members of the OWA truck wrap project are helping connect the transportation and agricultural industries with American consumers through a visual and mobile educational display. Each truck wrap includes the OWA logo, website, Facebook and Twitter icons. The social media ties allow consumers to use #StartsWithAg to connect on social media and in turn promote agricultural awareness.

How can you get involved?

Complete an OWA Truck Wrap Application and submit to OWA. This will initiate the process of creating the wrap specific for your trailer’s dimensions and establishing a final cost for your wrap. OWA prefers wrap placement on the rear of the truck for convenience and to provide the most effective display.

What does it cost?

The price of each wrap varies depending on the trailer type, graphic dimensions and color. Cost per truck can range from $600-$1000. Limited funds are available each year from OWA for this project. Priority for funding is given to trucks driven along major metropolitan areas and trucks that are driven year round or through multiple seasons. Applications are due June 1st, 2016, and an OWA member will contact you to talk about actual cost before finalizing any arrangement.

Where do I get my wrap?

Wraps are applied by VanDyke Sign makers in Tangent, Oregon. Trailers must be taken to Tangent for application, and possibly for measuring. OWA hopes to have more locations for application available throughout Oregon in the future.
