Lake Oswego City Recorder Robyn Christie has accepted a similar position in Bend. Her last day in Lake Oswego was yesterday. She will missed on many levels especially by ELGL as she was an integral part of our rapid growth from 16 members to more than 220. She organized one of the first ELGL meetings in Lake Oswego which was keynoted by LO city manager Alex McIntyre and included a tour of downtown Lake Oswego.
