President, OSFGC, Inc.
2021 – 2023
The President’s Theme
“Promote our Pledge, Protect our Pollinators”
I feel very honored and thankful for the opportunity to serve as your OSFGC President, 2021 – 2023.
My vision is for each club’s membership to plant two pollinator gardens during my two-year term. That would be 71 clubs x 2 = 142 new pollinator gardens! Grow membership by 10% a year for two years, dedicate additional Blue Star and Gold Star Memorial markers within the state, and encourage increases to Penny Pines and Promise Trees Project.

“Oregon’s pollinator license plate is finally available for pre-order! This is a dearly anticipated day for us in the Oregon Bee Atlas! Not only can we do PR for our pollinator buddies, but over the years there can be revenue generated for the work OSU is doing for native and honeybee health. Changing your plate has a couple other charges, so it’s something to consider.”
