Oregon Heritage Conference in Astoria a success!

April 7th - 9th brought a larger than expected conference to Astoria. The planners had anticipated about 125- 150 attendees but were delighted to have over 200. This conference was made up of  community leaders, historical societies, museums, historic cemeteries, schools, historic preservation commissions, tribal, state and federal governments. 

The Oregon Heritage Commission had their meeting at the Eliot Hotel at 8 am, sharp. Jan Mitchell (second row, second in from the right) was elected chair. Jan is well known for her good work as chair on the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial in 2005-6. This national event was  planned by a committee made up of Oregon and Washington residents.

Congratulations, Jan! Astoria and Clatsop county are proud.

Yes, it seems as if most conferences these days have fewer people than in the past. A real compliment to the organizers.
