2018 Women of Distinction Luncheon

The Women of Distinction Luncheon recognizes outstanding women leaders for their contributions to the community. Honorees exemplify the Girl Scout mission as women of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Luncheon proceeds allow GSOSW to provide girls with a clear road map for success that focuses on four pillars: STEM education, the outdoors, life skills, and entrepreneurship. Your gift supports Girl Scout activities and programs for over 14,000 girls throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.

In Honor of Marie Lamfrom

Marie Lamfrom served in World War I as a nurse, working on the Russian front at the age of 18. At the end of the war, she returned home to Germany and married Paul, then had three daughters. As the Nazis rose to power, Marie and her family fled to Portland, Oregon. They purchased a small hat company, which later grew to become Columbia Sportswear.
