Annual Winter Meeting - March 18, 2017 - Fort Colville Grange Hall


Good Day Neighbor!


I am excited to invite you to the WFFA NE Chapter's Annual Winter Meeting in Colville at the Fort Colville Grange Hall (157 Hwy 20 E in Colville) from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM on March 18, 2017. Our focus this year is “The Value of Working with Contractors”. Creating a partnership with a professional forestry contractor brings value and peace of mind in managing your land. You will be adding their skills, their resources and their relationships to your tool box in achieving your goals for your property.  


Come learn the who, what, why, where and when of working with contractors.

Also available will be local DNR & NRCS landowner assistance professionals who will be providing updates on cost share programs that are available to help landowners accomplish their goals with their land.

Not only will you have the occasion to listen to our fine speakers and enjoy the company of your neighbors, you will be served wonderful lunch provided by Lori Roberts. Doors open at 8:00 AM to begin the day for a meet and greet hour with your fellow landowners.


The winter meeting includes the election of our officers for the current year, opportunities for being involved with the local Chapter and support of our two scholarship programs.

The NE Chapter is extending an invitation to our neighboring Chapters to come and make the drive to Colville to join us for a day of fellowship.

The cost will be $20.00 per adult and $10.00 per child under the age of 18. If you register before March 4, 2017, the price is $16.00 per adult and $8.00 per child. Please complete the attached registration form and mail a check or Money Order (no cash, please) to the address listed on the form.

If you have any questions, please contact Ann Van Dielen by phone or text at 509-596-0931 or email at

Please bring your friends and neighbors as it will be very enjoyable day. We look forward to seeing you all there!


Ann Van Dielen, Assistant Secretary
