NEW OSDS HONORARY MEMBER : DONNA GRIMES

At the July 19, 2017 meeting, the BOD voted unanimously to welcome Donna Grimes to the OSDS Hall of Fame as an Honorary Member!

Donna has served on the Board of OSDS longer than any other person.....19 years!

She started as a Director in 1992, served as Treasurer from 2001 thu 2012, then Vice President in 2013, President in 2014, Past President 2015, and then Director/Treasurer in 2016 to present. In 2017, she has served on the leadership of the OSDS for 20 years.....twice as long as the next longest Board members.

Due to work and family committments she was not able to compete in as many trials as she wanted so she found other ways to be active closer to home. She and her family and friends hosted the Caledonian Games Trial for 25 years.  With the help of Nick Stagg, Cliff Steelman and Kathy Brunetto, Donna trained her own dogs which were used almost daily to work cattle at the ranch.  For 10 years she was part of a group that presented a history of Pendleton and the Northwest to the tour groups of The American Steamship Company.  Their presentation was once a week and later twice a week for the Paddlewheelers traveling up and down the Columbia River.  Her part of the presentation dealt with the sheep industry in the Northwest and how the sheepdogs were used.  She sincerely loves watching the dogs and livestock. A recent article from the Oregonian tells more about her love of livestock here:

 The BOD would like to recognize her outstanding service and dedication to the club with an Honorary Membership and inclusion in the OSDS Hall of Fame. A memento of the club's gratitude is being created and will be given to Donna. Thank you so much for all your hard work, Donna Grimes!
