2018 Officers

 

Pama Bangeman : President  
Following Norman Call and his well deserved retirement as President of the Oregon Koi & Watergarden Society will give me a large set of shoes to fill in 2018.  Thanks to all our members for the trust you have given me to lead this Club into the future.  I have been a member of this club for the past eight years.  During this time I found the courage to build my own pond, learning as I went and asking hundreds of questions that opened my eyes to a whole world of friendly people who are dedicated to Koi and their beauty.

Now that the pond is built I continue to explore new products and new thoughts on fishkeeping, there is always something new on the market and your fish can be a constant surprise with their antics and personalities. As a member of a local club I also enjoy visits to the many shows and seminars put on and hosted by other Koi clubs in the Pacific Northwest. My hope for this club’s future is to be a presence in this part of Oregon and to inform and help the public as they enjoy the hobby of pond keeping and water gardening.

Hello Everyone, My name is Kimberley. My husband Randy and I have 3 children and 2 grandson’s. Our family became members of OK&WS in 1999. Before the club we had a itty bitty 2000 gallon pond, after joining we upgraded to a 10,000. Over the years we have enjoyed learning everything koi and water garden. And along the way we have made some amazing friends. Randy and I are the PNKC Reps for the club

We have two ponds,.Our newest and largest pond is 24 x 12 x 7 1/2 ft totaling 16,000 gallons and the other one is 4200 gallons . I enjoy the technical aspects of filtration and water quality. If there is something you can never have enough of it is filtration.

 


Newsletter Editor: Pama Bangeman  

My husband and I have recently moved to Roseburg, Oregon from North Idaho and are getting to know the area and the friendly people. I have kept indoor aquariums with both Tropical fish and Goldfish but joined the Oregon Koi & Watergarden Society shortly after moving here to learn from the group about building a Koi pond and what that entailed. This club has opened my eyes to a whole new world of people who are dedicated to Koi and their beauty.

Since retiring from the Graphic Arts & publishing field it was a natural for me to take over as editor of our club newsletter when that position became available. In this position I am learning about Koi at an accelerated rate and I'm looking forward to starting a Koi pond soon with all of my new found information and friends.
