President's Message 

Last Friday we got a chance to see and hear about the human history of Oregon as seen through the eyes of William Sullivan, the author of several hiking books as well as some fiction and historical books. Bill zoomed us through 14,000 years of history, from the finding of the first sign of human habitation in the Americas (a pair of sandals found near Ft. Rock) to the present and even the potential future earthquake and its after effects. He was available to sign copies of his books that were available for purchase.

This coming Friday finds us visiting the Oregon State Hospital on Center Street as Russ Lipetzky has arranged for us to visit the new Museum of Mental Health. This museum is one of only two of its kind in the nation. It is "dedicated to telling the stories of the Oregon State Hospital and the people that have lived and worked here. Our 2,500 square foot museum, located in the oldest building on the Oregon State Hospital campus includes permanent and changing exhibits." Currently, the changing exhibit focuses on the movie "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," which was filmed at the hospital. Please report promptly at noon for the tour. There will be no lunch offered as the facility has no suitable space. There is a reduced entrance fee of $3.

Please be sure to attend our installation banquet on Friday, June 17. Dave and Pam Leonard have again graciously offered us the use of their historic barn. This banquet will take the place of our usual Friday luncheon. More details will be announced in the future.
