Photo of the Month


During the recent Civil War football game, Guaranty RV auctioned off the use of a motorhome and tailgate space, with all of the money raised going to the winning school's alumni association to fund student scholarships. Thanks to the generosity of Herb Nill and his family, the ingenuity of Brent MacCluer—who came up with the idea—and the Ducks' performance on the field, $750 is going to the UOAA Board of Directors Scholarship fund to help deserving students pay for tuition at the UO.
