Happy July! I hope that everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July. And I hope everyone has been able to keep cool in this crazy heat wave we are having.
June was a great month. Thank you all who attended the June meeting, we had a great turn
out. We successfully elected our 2015 – 2016 Board of Directors, selected our very worthy
membership award recipients and selected our paid delegates for Nashville. Let’s all give
them a big shout out!
It’s not too late to sign up for Nashville. There are currently (8) of us coming from
Portland! Let me know if you are also interested in attending, it is sure to be a great time
learning from industry partners, NAWIC ladies and COUNTRY MUSIC!
Brewfest is coming along great! A big Thank You to Lease Crutcher Lewis and Turner for
sponsoring at the IPA level of $1,500! I also want to thank PCI and Fortis for sponsoring at
the Stout level of $500. We are off to a great start. Please continue to seek sponsorships
from your companies and companies you do business with. Brewfest is our only event to
raise money, so please reach out! Sponsorships help us do the fun things we do and are a
huge part in sending paid delegates to NAWIC events. We are also in great need of auction
items and wine for the wall of wine. Please let me know if you need ideas for auction
Our July meeting will be July 16th and is a tour of the Sellwood Bridge! Please RSVP to
Aryn Ferguson. We will be following up the tour with dinner and networking at Elephants Deli. Parking is limited at the site, so carpooling from Elephants is encouraged. Wishing everyone a very fun and enjoyable summer, and I hope to see you at our July meeting!
