2015 Annual Meeting of the Association

We came. We met. We celebrated.

Minutes were approved, bylaws discussed, snacks eaten, and board members selected.

About 26 delegates (30 total attendees) from 14 Association Congregations across Oregon and Southwest Washington gathered on January 30th to celebrate 2015 and look toward the future of Camp Lutherwood Oregon.

Each staff member reported on happenings and achievements of the last year, then shared goals for 2016. As Camp Lutherwood Oregon becomes an increasingly year-round site for retreat and renewal, our facilities and staff must grow to serve guests and campers of all ages.
