HERITAGE EXCHANGE OFFERS BOARD COMPOSITION MATRIX DISCUSSION 
 
You know the board matrix: it has a list of skills and competencies
that are “supposed” to be on the board, such as legal, marketing, HR,
fundraising, finance. And typically there are also demographic
qualities, such as gender, race, and age. The board matrix then shows
what boxes you presumably need to fill. Learn about the three traps of
the board composition matrix from Jan Masaoka with Blue Avocado at
Oregon Heritage Exchange at www.oregonheritage.wordpress.com 
 
 
“ORIGINS: A DISCOVER OF PLACE” SET TO OPEN AT HANLEY FARM

“MCMINNVILLE 100 YEARS AGO” LOOKS AT YESTERDAY, TODAY
 
An exhibit of 50 photographs will launch “McMinnville 100 Years Ago”,
from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., July 5 at the US Bank plaza, at the corner of
East Third and Davis Streets, McMinnville. “McMinnville 100 Years Ago”
is a community-wide project that compares life 100 years ago with today,
keeping in mind the question, “How do we take the best of the past and
present into the future?”
 
The kickoff event features Yamhill County Historical Society images of
McMinnville that show life in the community from 1910 – 1920. After the
opening event, businesses in the community will feature the photographs
in rotating window displays throughout July. The McMinnville Public
Library, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, will also
feature the images. 
 
The project will continue with other events through the summer and
fall, including home and farm tours, a “Women and the Vote” celebration
featuring Gov. Barbara Roberts, and community conversations about the
past, present and future. For further information, visit

A new exhibit celebrating the centennial of the first motorized journey
on the Oregon Coast will open at the Burrows House Museum of the Lincoln
County Historical Society at 1 p.m., July 14. “Cars: Motoring the Coast”
explores the 1912 trip taken by four men called the Pathfinders, who
embarked on a 46-mile round-trip journey from Newport’s bay front to
Siletz Bay in an effort to promote the Commercial Club’s ‘good roads
program’. 
 
Following the exhibit opening at 2 p.m., Jim Stembridge, author of
“Pathfinder, The First Automobile Trip from Newport to Siletz Bay,
Oregon July, 1912” will talk about the Pathfinders’ ingenuity during
their 23-hour trip through sand and surf.
 
The week long centennial celebration will also include a caravan of
