Willamette Court Fun Facts
Willamette Court #2 is the oldest (we prefer most experienced!!!) Amaranth Court in Oregon, established May 14, 1921. The Grand Court of Oregon was not formed until 1927 and in 1928-1929, Willamette Court had it’s first Grand Royal Patron, SK Sam R. Mosher.
You can often find members of Willamette Court along I-5 at local rest stops serving coffee to weary travelers. Fund raising from these activities benefit the American Diabetes Foundation through donations made by the Court to the Grand Court of Oregon. Our Court also has a very strong tradition of supporting the Shrine Patient Transportation Fund to provide transportation services and reimbursement for parents traveling from rural Oregon to the Shrine Hospital in Portland, Oregon.
Members routinely enjoy each others company with meals out, game nights and card parties, as well as holiday gatherings. Our members range in age from 18 to 90+ and span the globe with members currently living on the Big Island of Hawaii and in The Philippines. Members routinely travel the globe for work and pleasure and we know that they are great ambassadors for the Order of the Amaranth when they travel.
Nickname of Eugene - Track Town USA
Mascot - University of Oregon Duck - The original duck mascot was Walt Disney’s Donald Duck. Walt gave the University permission to use Donald Duck’s image for promotional purposes. Today, the Duck is a world-class athlete and know in social, academic and mascot circles for his athleticism by doing push-ups at each UO Duck football game each time the team scores. The Duck has been in the balloting for the most famous and beloved mascot for the last several years.
Team Colors - in Eugene, we bleed GREEN and YELLOW! Although, as could be seen in the 2015 NCAA Football Championships, Black and silver may also be the new green and yellow. (This was a very unpopular choice among local UO supporters who wanted the traditional school colors to be seen at the National Championship Game and by the national television viewing audience.)
