2016 Ag-Timber Parade
Sponsored by Oregon Women in Timber-Union County Chapter
For the 2nd year, the Ag-Timber parade was rainy but still yielded a fairly good turn out. Our grand marshals this year were our State Co-President Melissa Fullerton and her husband John Fullerton, Boise Cascade’s Log Procurement Manager. We appreciated all who turned out for the annual event to give tribute to both the Agriculture and Timber industries!
