OREGON HERITAGE EXCELLENCE WINNERS ANNOUNCED 

Eugene, OR — The Oregon Parks & Recreation Department's Oregon Heritage Programs focuses on the preservation and protection of Oregon's heritage and historic and cultural services. Each year the Oregon Heritage Commission selects and honors numerous individuals, groups and organizations with its Excellence Awards.  

This year is extra-special for Dorothy Brandner of Eugene. Dorothy has been selected as the first recipient of the Sally Donovan Award for Historic Cemetery Preservation. This award is given for a project, organization, or person for outstanding contribution in the preservation of Oregon historic cemeteries. Ms. Brandner has contributed mightily for over a decade in providing leadership, research and preservation of Eugene's Pioneer Cemetary.  

This year's awards are being presented in conjunction with the Oregon Heritage Summit. The awards banquet will be held from 6:30-9:00 p.m. at the Chehalem Cultural Center (415 E Sheridan, Newberg) on the evening of Wednesday, April 26. Special guests include Bertony Faustin, proprietor of Abbey Creek Vineyards, who will share his experience documenting the stories of a growing community of fellow minority winemakers across the state.

Tickets are available by using the online registration system that is available through www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/Pages/Conference.aspx. If you register for the Oregon Heritage Summit April 26-27, tickets to the Heritage Excellence Awards Banquet are included.
