You are invited to the second annual BBQ-Potluck social, which this year will conclude an Old Growth Forest Tour after lunch!  This social event has no real program other than the lunch and hike.

BBQ chicken, Kielbasa, and drinks will be provided, so please bring your favorite side dish to share.  After lunch we’ll load up into a few cars for the trip up the hill.  The hike into the Old Growth is not easy, but no mountain climb either.  Please have appropriate shoes and cameras. 

Directions: Havel’s are about 30 miles west of Salem and about 4 miles past Willamina.  Take Hwy 22 west from Salem about 27 miles to the Willamina Jct.  Go straight through and continue toward the coast on a divided highway another 3 miles to exit 25.  Take the exit and a right at the stop, up and over the overpass and down to a T on Yamhill River Rd.  Take a left and go 1/2 mile to Gold Creek Rd., which is a right, over a concrete bridge.  Go (1) one mile up Gold Creek Rd. to the first forest on your right, then along those woods for 1000 ft and a right just past a small bridge over Gold Creek.  Watch for 6955 on the mailbox and an OSWA sign to follow in.
