With Meet LGMSD, we take you behind the scenes to introduce you to the folks who make us who we are—the Board, the Committees, the volunteers, and the staff. Each week, we plan to introduce you to one of the many individuals who contribute so much to La Grande Main Street, ultimately making La Grande a vibrant, stable, and beautiful place to gather, shop, eat, work, live, and play
This week, we continue our introductions with Evie Stacy, co-chair of LGMSD’s Design Committee.
Evie Stacey, co-chair of our Design Committee, was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in Central Point, Oregon on the C2 Cattle Ranch. She attended Clatsop Community College and the Eastern Oregon University with a business/psychology major and a minor in gender studies. She has been a home care provider, nurse, and death doula.
Evie has been a member of the La Grande Arts Commission for the past 12 years. She became involved with LGMSD when she became a liaison between the Arts Commission and LGMSD, which evolved into her becoming a member of our Design Committee. Being involved in her community is just a natural for Evie and runs in the family, as they were all involved with the Seasons Fair.
The number one favorite thing that Evie enjoys about being involved with the Design Committee is meeting people and sharing ideas. A close second is keeping up with what is happening in La Grande.
Evie and her husband, Forest, have 6 children and 20 grandchildren. She and Forest are avid rendezvous reenactors (1840 hunter/trapper) and participate in the Wenaha muzzleloader group. She also enjoys gardening, crocheting, and spending time with the grandkids. They are pet parents to two dogs and two cats as well.
