Some of our friends from far away asked about how the fires and smoke are affecting Oregon and Washington, and where our clubs are relative to the fires. Zonta District 8 clubs are in the worst air quality zones in the world, and Zonta Club of Grants Pass, Zonta Club of Eugene and Zonta Club of Yakima have active fires within 25 miles. Many members are nearby, but very few have been in fire evacuation zones. Many are suffering with the heavy smoke. Here’s a crude map of air quality from Sept 14th with Fire Zones in District 8, and where our clubs are “located”. Note for Scale — from the top of the map to the bottom is about 600 miles.
