Ron and Marilyn Schmit

Marilyn and Ron have been involved with the Oregon Federation Showcase of Ideas display since 1990. They have been the Directors of the Showcase of Ideas for eight different conventions and are the Directors through the convention in 2024.

Marilyn holds square dance offices in the local, council, and state Federation for Oregon. She is a past member of the Executive Committee for United Square Dancers of America and has been an Oregon delegate to the Annual Meeting for over 15 years.

She makes quilt tops and each grandchild has at least one, they get number two at high school graduation, and possibly another one at college graduation. Both of the great grands have their first one. She is also learning to cue and teach round dancing since the passing of her long time round dance partner after 20 years
