Celebrate Oregon's birthday Feb. 14

The public is invited to celebrate Oregon’s birthday on Friday, Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day, with a free event at the Baker Heritage Museum, 2480 Grove St., at 7 p.m.

Oregon became a state on Feb. 14, 1859.

The party in the Museum’s ballroom will include a program called “Ranching in the Past,” featuring emcee Jessie Ritch and speakers Fred Warner Sr., Dick Kirby and Dan Warnock, who will talk about their families’ historic ranches.

The Warner Ranch is in Baker Valley, the Kirby Ranch was in Durkee Valley, and the Warnock Ranch started in Sumpter Valley. 

The program of lively anecdotes is anticipated to last about one hour, with time afterward for questions and answers. Refreshments will include a birthday cake for Oregon, cookies, punch and coffee.

This will be the first part of a two-part series on Baker County ranch life, with the second free public program, “Ranching and Life on Snake River,” set for Monday, May 19, also at 7 p.m. in the Museum ballroom.

New members are always invited to join the Baker County Historical Society. Memberships application forms are available at each public program. The cost is $10 annually per individual/family, or $100 for a lifetime membership.
