Yamhill County Women for Ag gearing up for Fall activities

Posted on: October 2nd, 2014

Yamhill County does not meet during the summer, but our members helped out at state fair, hosted teachers for the Summer Ag Institute and informed others about harvest progress through our Facebook feeds.

We have had our first meeting of the fall and are getting ready to start our gift packs. We have started the process for our annual gift pack fund raiser.  So if anyone would like a nice Christmas present to send friends, relatives, or business associates of Oregon fruits and nuts, please let Helle know email or call 503-932-0558 if you would like to pre-order. They will be sold at the same price as the last couple of years – $25. each.

We are very pleased to use the money raised to have award two scholarships; one for $750 to Lorena Hernandez to attend Chemeketa Community College and one for $1,000 to Tess Scott to attend OSU. Both young ladies are very active in agriculture. We also use the money to support local 4-H and FFA.

Our member Helle Ruddenklau was quoted in the McMinnville News Register about why people should vote down Measure 92 – the GMO labeling initiative. We also have ladies ready to participate in the Ag in the Classroom program.

We meet at Citizens Bank on the fourth Tuesday of the month.  We will have our next meeting on Tuesday October 28th at 11:30 at Citizens Bank in McMinnville.  We also host the state board meeting on November 21st at Pape in McMinnville.

Thanks for your time.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYamhill County just had our first meeting after taking a summer break. We are planning on packing our gift packs again in November and wanted to let OWA members know that you can pre-order a gift pack and we will deliver them to the board meeting before Christmas. They will cost $25 again this year and include: hazelnuts and walnuts, dried prunes and apples and the jar of Maraschino cherries. The ingredient list may yet change somewhat, but this is what we included last year. We can also ship them for you. We will just add the cost of shipping a flat rate box. Let Susie Kreder (503-864-2077) or Helle Ruddenklau (503-835-7941) know if you would like to order some.
