Trail Boss Award – 2004 – John and Lynn Breese

John & Lynne manage a central Oregon ranch and open their home, ranch, minds and hearts to students from high schools, OSU Cascades, OSU main-campus and Central Oregon Community College. To honor the memory of a friend, they created Nan’s Weekend, a time for people from city and country to work, laugh, eat and learn together. This has served as the PNW model for the Section’s outreach effort – and it has gone international: PNW member Arnie Raven has Nan’s Weekends on Wolf Ranch in British Columbia! Former Section officers, John was president and Lynne a director. They are part of the PNW newsletter team. Leadership is the keystone to their tenure as Section officers and members.
