Richard “Dick” Phillip Dunn
The District lost a long standing board member this past June. Dick Dunn passed away on June 25, 2016. He was an active member of the Rogue River Valley Irrigation District (RRVID) who contributed greatly to the board. He helped steer the District to where it is today, he will be missed.
A memorial service for Dick will be held at 6:00 PM Sunday, August 7, 2016 at his daughter, Kathy’s house at 5489 Seven Oaks Road, Central Point, Oregon.
Due to the unfortunate passing of Dick Dunn, there is now an opening on the RRVID Board. The Board is reaching out to water patrons to fill the vacancy for the remainder of the 2016 year. If interested please contact the Board President, Bryan Baumgartner, through the main RRVID office at 541-773-6127.
