Letters to the Editor for Oct. 22, 2010

Celtic Society will be no more
To the editor:
It is with heavy hearts that we, the Executive Council of the Eastern Oregon Celtic Society (EOCS) met Sept. 30 and voted unanimously to dissolve the Society. We have all enjoyed hosting the Highland Games and Celtic Festival immensely the past two years. However the problems we have had regarding the venue at Leo Adler Field have proven to be too much.

We have faced many trials and adversities over the past two years together, but now we are faced with the loss of a venue permanently for the Highland Games and Celtic Festival for the following years. Organizing the Celtic Festival requires hundreds of man-hours from a few core volunteers each year. While we appreciate all the help we have received from all of you, there seems to be a lack of interest within the local communities.

The Eastern Oregon Throwers (EOT) will continue and there will be no membership fee for being a part of the EOT, just come and have fun with us. We will still participate in community service projects through the EOT and will host a Black Sheep Throw (Games Only) the last weekend of August with more events scheduled throughout the year.

While we love all things Celtic, and have thoroughly enjoyed organizing this event, as a board, we can no longer feasibly continue to host the Eastern Oregon Celtic Festival and Highland Games in Baker City. We want to express our gratitude to our members, volunteers, and the communities that have assisted us for the past two years for all they have done.
