Plan to attend today's meeting on NWREC nursery position
The Oregon Association of Nurseries is hosting a meeting today on the Professor of Nursery Production position at OSU's North Willamette Research and Extension Center (NWREC). Bill Braunworth, department head at OSU's Horticulture School, and Mike Bondi, NWREC director, will lead the meeting and review last fall's unsuccessful search, as well as possible changes to the position description and announcement that will go out in the next round.
The meeting will take place from 4–5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 6 at the OAN office in Wilsonville. Please RSVP to Mike Bondi, firstname.lastname@example.org. For any other questions, contact Jeff Stone, email@example.com.
Salem-Keizer Volcanoes baseball team to honor the Oregon nursery industry
Please save the date for Oregon Nursery Industry Night on Friday, June 26, as the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, Class A Affiliate of the world champion San Francisco Giants, take on the Spokane Indians at 6:35 p.m. at Keizer Stadium. All members are encouraged to attend.
The game will include a first pitch from OAN President Mike Coleman, as well as between-innings presentations that will help the public understand the positive impact the nursery industry has on Oregon's economy. There will also be a post-game fireworks display afterwards.
