March 2011: From the Editor

We have another month full of great events!

There have been no volunteers to host this month’s potluck so there will be no potluck in March.  Please consider volunteering your home to host our potluck in April.   Our traditional day is the second Monday of the month, but we are open to suggestions of other days and times.  Please let us know what you prefer.

Due to icy weather, we had our February DVD showing on March 4th, with some lively discussion afterward.

Upcoming Eugene Chapter Events include:
March 19th – We will have our first Planning Session of 2011, and we hope many of you will be able to attend.
March 25th – DVD Showing Fat: An Endocrine Organ.

Other Events (not Eugene Chapter sponsored) this month include:
March 14th – Support Eugene Urban Goats at the Eugene City Counsel Meeting
March 15th – Family Farmer & Rancher Day in Salem
