Thank you!
The Marie Lamfrom 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 the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE), enhance our four priority program areas: Financial Literacy, Healthy Living, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), and Outdoor Leadership, and support various Girl Scout activities and programs for nearly 15,000 girls throughout Oregon and SW 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.
