The latest blog entry on the Oregon Heritage Exchange is part of a series of posts celebrating ten years of the Oregon Main Street Network's efforts across the state. This post features the Greater Bandon Association's downtown efforts in Bandon and their festival featuring a rather sore subject in the area, the gorse plant. Gorse is an invasive plant that has really wreaked havoc on the community in a variety of ways but this organization has decided to "celebr(hate)" with an off-season festival featuring local seafood, beer, wine, and more to bring visitors to the community during a normal slow time of year. Read more about the festival and the Greater Bandon Association in the latest Oregon Heritage Exchange post:  https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2017/03/31/oregon-main-street-highlight-bandon/.

Eugene - April 19, 9:00am-11:00am

National leader BoardSource President and CEO Anne Wallestad presents on Moments Where Executives Are Called to Lead in the Nonprofit Sector. In times of change, nonprofit leaders-- board members and executives-- face big questions. Questions about their future, their values, and their willingness to advocate for the issues that matter most to their mission and the people they serve:

  *   What will this mean for our mission and the people we serve?
  *   How might our strategies and approaches need to change to reflect our new reality?
  *   When and how should we be organizing for change?
These are the moments where boards are called to lead. Join Anne Wallestad, President and CEO of BoardSource<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001jW1ih8jYZ_dlQ2RIaZIvhy-vhIjedcXvO83eMx4iIModIsy73WHs5BhOXmZKoLtqRCbF2z720RZg8EOR5T1kgu-Sb_Q5yUHLVslyWrym35_iNDswotZ7uCS-X4cgpoYdiyMxGk-hVgBPk4SZUpEyYttB9V0rOJM1GXSOInKQZ9M=&c=nHvh4131jdVuDMGiXdyWvK152l1roW6FU86eRHQFw8qkSPEkAJJytg==&ch=LcB22SSEnmfjXlOw5RTHyYZIqhLCuNXRXxl4H6-0Gk8Di-H0ouetTw==>, for reflection and discussion on this moment in nonprofit leadership-- what we can learn from what's happening across the sector and how to translate that into positive momentum and action here in Oregon.

The Chinese Material Culture Collection contains images of a variety of artifacts commonly found on archaeological sites and in museums documenting the Chinese migrant diaspora from the mid-19th through the early 20th century.  The assemblage highlights artifacts from Chinese communities in Oregon and California in an effort to promote education and greater understanding of the role Chinese migrants played in the settlement and development of the American West.

For more than 50 years archaeologists have been working on sites associated with Chinese participation in the gold fields, railroad construction and maintenance, agriculture, logging industry, fisheries and canneries, and urban settlements. This collection was created as a means to standardize terminology, aid in artifact identification, and provide accurate information about the manufacture and function of a variety of everyday items used in early Chinese communities in the West.

This collection was made possible through a partnership between the Southern Oregon University Laboratory of Anthropology and Hannon Library, and PAR Environmental Resources, Inc.  Priscilla Wegars, curator of the Asian American Comparative Collection<http://webpages.uidaho.edu/aacc/> at the University of Idaho Laboratory of Anthropology served as peer reviewer and advisor for the collection.
