Tillamook County Pioneer Museum Exhibit features Route 6

In the summer of 2018, the State of Oregon named Routes 6 and 131 in Tillamook County as the state's newest Scenic Byway called "Trees to Sea." To commemorate that designation, the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum has installed a new exhibit entitled "Celebrate Route 6!" The story of the building of the Wilson River Highway and how the Tillamook Burns affected the building of the road is told through a series historic photographs from the Museum's collection.  The exhibit of will be on display until February 17, 2019.

The Pioneer Museum has been working with the Tillamook Forest Center and Art Accelerated/Blink You Miss It Gallery on a year-long series of events to highlight the importance of the Wilson River Highway in the development of Tillamook County. For more information on upcoming events, visit the Celebrate Route 6 or Art Accelerated Facebook pages.

The Pioneer Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 AM to 4 PM. The admission fees for the Museum are $4 for adults, $3 for seniors, and $1 for students 12 to 18. Children under 12 are free. For more information visit www.tcpm.org<http://www.tcpm.org> or call 503.842.4553.

OR Commission for Women announces recipient of Oregon Women of Achievement Award

*reprinted from press release received from the Oregon Advocacy Commissions Office on Jan. 22, 2019

The Oregon Commission for Women (OCFW) is proud to announce Susan Stoltenberg, Executive Director of the YWCA of Greater Portland, as its 2018 Woman of Achievement awardee.  This award recognizes her leadership in developing programs to address the needs of affordable housing for women and their families.

Recognized as a leader for equity and social justice, Susan Stoltenberg has served as executive director for many non-profit agencies over the past 35 years.  Today, she leads Oregon's only YWCA.  She is passionately dedicated to its mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.  Susan is a visionary leader dedicated to creating a community where all people have opportunities for living safe, fulfilling lives of self-determination.  Understanding that domestic violence survivors need permanent housing, Susan refocused the YWCA's Domestic Violence Program from shelter services to providing housing advocacy and rental assistance. Under her leadership, the YWCA launched Communities of Restoration and Healing, a shared housing program which operates in five locations throughout Portland, providing affordable housing for survivors of domestic violence and their children, formerly incarcerated mothers and their children, and elderly women.

The Oregon Commission for Women believes Susan Stoltenberg is a dynamic leader and role model with a strong record of service to the community.  OCFW Chair Dr. Barbara Ramírez Spencer commented, "We thank Susan for her contributions to promote equity and justice for all women in Oregon.  She exemplifies the Oregon motto - 'She flies with her own wings.'"
The honoree will receive her award at the Women's History Month Proclamation ceremony at the State Capitol in Salem in March 2019.

Since 1985 the Oregon Commission for Women has honored women in Oregon with its Women of Achievement Award.  The award recognizes women whose leadership and accomplishments have promoted the status of women in Oregon and reflected a commitment to equity and diversity.  The honoree is a leader among her peers and an exemplary role model for women and girls in Oregon.  To date over 95 women have been recognized with this award.

The Oregon Commission for Women was legislatively established in 1983 to work for women's equality. The commission does this by advocating for women in the community, providing information on women to the governor and state legislature, serving as a link for women to state agencies, and supporting policy research on women in Oregon.
