Welcome to The Associates

Northwest Federal Employees Association

Our historian, Libby Burke, has unearthed more gems from 1939, the first 3 editions of the Bonneville Spark.  Each edition is 35-45 pages and provides a window into life at the “Bonneville Project” in 1939.  You can read about the Christmas Party, held in the garage at the Bonneville Annex, poems, and an Office Gossip page.  Volume 1 No. 1 includes the original draft of Articles of Incorporation and the By-Laws of the Bonneville Project Associates, while Volume 1 No.3 has a tribute to J. D. Ross after his death.  Great find, Libby!

The Northwest Federal Employees Association (NFEA or “Associates”) is a nonprofit organization established under IRS paragraph 501(c)(4) to maintain the general welfare and provide specified benefits to Federal employees whose Agency is headquartered in the Lloyd Center area of Portland, Oregon.
