Our Board

Diane Kelso (Board Chair) is a retired Registered Nurse after working in the industry for 40 years. She has more time now to tend to her blueberry and peach farm and additional acreage that her husband and she are converting from pasture to forest land. She is a native Oregonian and her husband, Peter, is a transplant from Arizona. They both enjoy volunteering in their local community at Guide Dogs for the Blind and the Sandy Actor’s theatre. In addition, they especially find the Sandy Community Action Center to be an awesome resource for the community and are both very active volunteers.

Midge Meade (Treasurer) and her husband moved to Oregon in 1991 to raise their four children within the qualities that make Oregon, and specifically, Sandy, Oregon, special; wooded lots, clean water and air, easy access to Mt Hood wilderness and the city of Portland. Since 1992 Midge has worked as a Registered Nurse at Mt Hood Medical Center in Gresham. She enjoys doing anything outdoors, volunteering and helping to reduce the barriers people face in securing a healthy, productive lifestyle.

Mike Walker (Secretary) Mike has lived in Sandy since 1985. He moved here from Colorado to become the Public Works Director for the City of Sandy. His wife, Kathleen, and he have two daughters – Emily, a Freshman at Lewis & Clark and Anya, a sophomore at Sandy High School. His community service gigs included a stint as chair of the Oregon Trail School District Facilities Task Force, member of the Value Oregon Trail Education (VOTE) group that advocated for the new High School bond and as a member of the School District Bond Oversight Committee.
