May 7
Presented by the Columbia Gorge Charter Chapter of American Business Women's Association
9 AM to 4PM
Downtown Camas
Our first seven years were a tremendous success, and we look forward to another exciting event with over 70 regional nurseries and local merchants displaying all types of plants and garden accessories. Get in the gardening mood as you explore unique offerings of garden art, wind chimes, planters, garden furniture, iron works, and much more. Free for the children is the "Kids Zone" sponsored by Home Depot, and Craft Warehouse. Kids can craft that "one of a kind" Mother's Day gift. Community volunteers will be helping through out the day. Along with this event, Georgia Pacific is hosting their annual "Health and Safety Fair", with booths of health related vendors, free paper products, and local entertainment! Make this an exciting day to meander along the streets of downtown Camas and enjoy the pristine small town atmosphere. Come and enjoy the day with your family and friends.
The mission of ABWA is to bring together businesswomen of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grown personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support and national recognition. The funds generated by the Garden Fair event go to sponsor scholarships for local women who are returning to the workforce or need to upgrade their skill levels in response to life changing events such as divorce, widowhood, layoff, disability, etc.
