Greetings Oregon, Washington, Idaho Doane cousins!

The Doane Family Association of Oregon Washington and Idaho would like to invite you to our annual family gathering and picnic.

Our last gathering was very lively and we hope by returning to Vancouver, Saturday, August 18 we can continue the great time had by all.

We will have a picnic – not necessarily a potluck as we don’t know how many to anticipate – followed by an informal meeting, election of officers, and then you are free to visit the city or stay and enjoy Hazel Dell Park.
