Your New 2014 EWGS Board

Take your choice of photos.......... think of your new EWGS Board members and sorry I did not get a new photo! (Those are darn cute pix, don't you think? Which one is John Ellingson???)

We all enjoyed a great lunch at Timber Creek, and a fabulous program from Don McLaughlin about his work identifying the old Colville Road (between Walla Walla and Colville). Loved the snippets we learned:  This was the original spelling:  Wallah Wallah. A large portion of northcentral Washington was titled the Colville region after a dude who never set foot there. The ruts from that road are still visible in many places.

We also recognized our past presidents and our distinguished service members. We are blessed to have so many of these good folks with us but we did lose two past presidents in 2013.

Our new Board is eager and ready to serve:  Donna Phillips again as president, Pat Bayonne-Johnson as vice-president, Oweta Floyd as treasurer, Diganne Bongarts as recording secretary,  Evelyn Carpenter Small as corresponding secretary, Lola King McCreary as member-at-large, Bill Hire is still past president, and Dolly Webb and Kathy Bowan are our new trustees. Juanita McBride continues as Librarian. We are so lucky to have these good folks keeping EWGS not only alive but thriving!

Hope somebody will send to me or post themselves a pix of this great crew!

If you missed then you missed a great lunch, an informative and most interesting presentation and a chance to throw tomatoes at the new Board. See you in February for our Book Auction..... and if you have material to donate, Juanita requests it be brought down to the library, preferably on a Tuesday, by Jan 14....with a grace period to the 21st.
