Greetings Brothers & Sisters,
Well, this is not how I imagined my last couple of months as Department of Oregon’s Conductress would go. As you all know the State Convention has been cancelled and we will not be meeting at the Mill Casino this year. Sigh…. My tenure as your Conductress is going out with a whimper rather than a bang. With that said….
I have really enjoyed my year as your Department Conductress. I represented the Department of Oregon at the National Convention in Orlando, Florida last July and then again in Anchorage, Alaska in November at the National Mid-Winter Meeting. I am sad that I did not get to introduce National President Peggy Haake for her visit to Oregon, but her trip was cancelled due to COVID 19.
I would like to say that if you have been thinking about becoming a line officer, look at those that are currently in the line. This group of people that are your line officers today, are the reason I decided to do more and run for a position in the line.
Tough decisions have had to be made with the current Pandemic and this leadership is doing an excellent job. I am proud to be part of this team. Thank you for all you do for our veterans and their families.
Cookie (Debbie) Little
