    FROG met on September 21.
    The backside improvements are being completed. The cost is less than anticipated. The HBPA, OQHRA and Portland Meadows will meet on September 28 to discuss additional needs.
    The group discussed the Burns meet.  Overall, the meet went well.
    The Portland Meadows Welcome Back BBQ is scheduled for September 28 at the Backside Café.
    FROG will not meet in October due to the fair meeting in Albany. The next meeting will be at Portland Meadows in November.
    The Commission met on September 21.
    Commissioner Conde reviewed recommendations from the Medication sub-committee. The main concern is regarding horses running on consecutive days. If this occurs the horse will be subject to pre-race vet inspection and mandatory testing whether a winner or not. The commission will make the rules, which are already in place, more accessible and visible.
    Director McGrail shared results of the Burns meet. There were no issues
    In Memoriam
    Donna Mae Wineberg Jensen (1938 - 2017)
    May 7, 1938 - Sept. 4, 2017
    Donna Jensen, 79, of Wilsonville, passed away while surrounded by family on Monday, Sept. 4, 2017. Donna was a world traveler, a philanthropist, a business owner, entrepreneur, and, above all else, a loving and devoted mother.

    Donna was born May 7, 1938 in Vancouver, to William and Janet Wineberg, the youngest of three daughters. She graduated from Evergreen High School in Vancouver in 1956. She attended Clark College and later the University of Arizona, where she was a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority. She operated Portland Meadows Race Track and Golf Course for a number of years, during which she played a key part in the horse racing industry. Donna was an avid contributor to Oregon 4-H and was recognized by the Yamhill and Clackamas counties for her contributions. Other charities she supported include: The Salvation Army, Camp Fire, Girl Scouts, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. She will be remembered by many friends and her family for her outgoing personality and generous nature.

    Donna is survived by her two sons, Eric Jensen and John Jensen Jr.; grandchildren, John III and Jesse; sister, Ellen; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, John Jensen; son, Steven Jensen; sister, Sella Hatfield; and her parents.
    A service was held on Saturday Sept. 16, 2017.
