At the 2008 state convention, Margaret Burton was surprised to find out that she had been selected our branch’s Education Foundation’s Named Gift Honoree for 2007. This award is usually kept secret until the branch Installation Dinner, but the state EF Chair let the “cat out of the bag” a bit early. In 1995, Maggie was honored by the state with its EF Named Gift Honoree award for exception work at the state level.
Maggie Burton and Mary Sause celebrated “Tillamook triumphs” with a toast. Our branch won awards earlier during the day for “Best Newsletter in a Medium Size Branch” (Mary is the editor) for the third year in a row and “Best Branch Web Site” in the state (Betty Diamond, branch webmaster, was on-hand to receive that award).
Maggie Burton, Mary Sause, and Jane Frost join Jill Heffner, of Pendleton branch, for networking and dinner during the EF Foundation Gala on Saturday night.
