“Plant a Seed, Reap a Harvest”
 
Oregonians live in a state filled with natural beauty that includes miles of coastal shores,deserts, mountains, rich valleys, rolling wheat fields, tall trees and magnificent rivers. As an organization, we are pledged to protect this beauty and conserve it for the present as well as for the future.
 
Our theme “Plant a Seed, Reap a Harvest” should evoke an image of actual planting to create beauty in our personal garden sanctuaries and in community places to delight the public, but it also is intended to encourage the planting of ideas for leadership, mentoring of new Club members and chairmen, building membership and enhancing communication within our state and beyond.
 
Unity, as well as diversity, have always been keys in the development of Oregon and we pledge to continue to play an important role in its magnificent unfolding for the 21 st Century.
 
Our special project for 2017-2019 will be to “Plant Pollinator Gardens in Public Places.” You may select the places and the specific flowers you wish to plant and we, and the pollinators, will thank you for your efforts.
