Wow, this year has flown by! The 24th annual Women Writing the West Conference will begin in Walla Walla in just a few days!
The Pendleton Woolen Mills generously donated a Chief Joseph Blanket for the 2018 Women Writing the West Conference.
This gorgeous blanket will be raffled at the annual business meeting, held Saturday morning at 10:50 a.m., prior to lunch.
Many of you might not realize it, but the business meeting is something that is held to meet requirements of our by-laws. And for any business to pass during this meeting, we must have a quorum of at least 20 percent of our membership. That’s why we are offering this additional incentive in hopes you’ll join us for the meeting.
All you need to do to enter for a chance to win the blanket is attend the meeting. Every person attending will receive one free ticket to enter in the drawing. Must be present to win.
First woven in the 1920s, this USA-made wool blanket has been one of the company’s most popular designs ever since. Chief Joseph led the Nez Perce tribe native to northeastern Oregon in the late 1800s. Widely admired for protecting his people and speaking the truth, he is honored with this design, symbolizing bravery. Bold arrowheads represent the chief’s courage, strength and integrity. The blanket reverses for two varied looks. Find out more about Pendleton products on their website: pendleton-usa.com
