The Joe Oescheger Memorial Weekend in the Redwoods was named in honor of Past Grand President Joe Oescheger who started the event to get members from around the state to travel to the “Redwoods” to enjoy the beauty of Humboldt County. PGP Oescheger was raised in Ferndale but moved to the Bay Area and was a member of Redwood Parlor #66 when he was elected Grand President in 1963. He held his Grand Parlor in 1964 in Eureka at the historic Eureka Inn. That was the last time a Grand Parlor was held in the area.
THIS EVENT IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE BECAUSE OF THE COVID VIRUS PANDEMIC.
