On Wednesday, August 6th a few chapter members helped serve food at the Greg Merritt BBQ Scholarship Dinner.  Greg was a prominent local farmer in Crook County who strongly believed in education and community service, he passed away due to cancer at the age of 54.  The scholarship fund was started 13 years ago by family and friends to honor Greg & all he did for his family & community.  Each year, 5 scholarships are given to Crook County High School Seniors to help with their college expenses.

At the end of August, Jessica Hanna and Jackie Veelle enjoyed the opportunity to come over and work a shift at the state fair.

Jessica Hanna also participated as one of the 5 OWA ladies to be filmed for the Farm to School Campaign that OWA, ODA  & KATU are partnering in.  She was representing the specialty seed crop industry from Central Oregon.
