Join Congresswoman Bonamici at a Town Hall Meeting

As your Representative, I work to make sure that your voice is heard in Congress. One way I keep in touch is by holding Town Hall Meetings to answer questions and hear what’s on your mind.

There are many issues to talk about. For example, where is the debate on health care leading us? How can we make things a little easier for those working hard just to make ends meet? And, because I got my start in community college, I am also focused on increasing affordable options for education to help people gain the knowledge and skills they need to secure good jobs now and in the future.

I hope you will consider joining me at a Town Hall Meeting when I’m in your community:

Oregon Military History Book Talk & Lecture

North Plains Public Library is proud to host a book talk and lecture on the topic of Oregon Military history.

October 19, 2017
7:00 PM

North Plains Public Library
31334 NW Commercial Street
North Plains, OR 97133

Oregon’s military heritage goes back thousands of years with native warrior traditions. From 1847 to 1880 Army and volunteers units engaged Oregon’s native peoples in eight major conflicts.  The Army built several forts from Oregon’s coast to the Snake River.   The Oregon Militia was first created in 1843 and this led to creation of the Oregon National Guard in 1887. As the Pacific Northwest’s well-trained National Guard unit, the 41st Infantry Division served commendably from 1941 to 1945.  Oregonians served heroically in Korea and Vietnam.   Recently Oregon Army and Air National Guard units have been serving in Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts.

All are welcome.|
