May 14 – Anmnual Meeting: Speaker: Dr. Beck, Superintendent LO Schools
June 3-5 - LWVs of Oregon and Washington Joint Council
June 11 – Patio Party
| ANNUAL MEETING
Saturday, May 14: 1:30 – 4:00 p.m.
Join your Board and fellow members to celebrate our year’s accomplishments and plan for the future. Do set aside the time to attend to help set our program for the coming year.
At the beginning of our meeting, Dr. Heather Beck, Superintendent of the Lake Oswego School District and Liz Hartman, Board Chair and League member, will speak to us briefly about the upcoming November facilities bond measure. In addition to the various technical studies and goal setting meetings, the District has reached out to the community through an online thought exchange conversation in which 1,810 people participated. The bond measure will be a major local ballot measure for the patrons of Lake Oswego. Other school districts face similar issues due to maintenance cutbacks during the recent recession. We welcome their time to present where the plan is in its finalization process.
No League event is complete without visiting with friends, eating and drinking. If it is convenient, please bring a small plate of munchies to share. Coffee and tea will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there.
