FEATURED NEWS

 
Due to a lack of participation, Oregon Girls State has been canceled.  The decision was made for us due to the situations with our schools having teachers and counselors being moved around within the system and our Units also had an equally tough year with many not meeting in any form. We did try to combine with the Oregon Boys State Program but they only had two boys apply.
 
The Department of Delaware has graciously invited our girls to attend their program. The girls will get the education we would have given them and make contacts that are far more reaching than just in Oregon. They are not charging any fees to attend and our committee will be able to sign in and watch. 
 
CALL TO CONVENTION has been sent out – Convention is happening at Seven Feathers in Canyonville  starting June 23, 2021. 2021_ALA_Convention_Call;      2021_Convention_Lodging;    2021_Convention_Meals
