Columbia Gorge Women for Ag help out Cycle Oregon
The summer season was not short on wonderful opportunities for the OWA chapter to be active in the community. Even with our harvest season in full swing we still managed to take on a large role with this years Cycle Oregon event. Cycle Oregon started and ended in The Dalles and we stepped in as the site coordinator for the time they stayed here. This position included manning the beer garden, delegating other site duties and being a friendly face in the community. People come from all over the world to ride through the beautiful countryside that we call home. While they were here we wanted to make sure we got our message across. To do that we placed 50 crop ID signs along the route, 2 of the “Farming keeps Oregon growing” billboards, wrote daily fun fact article about the crops they would see and served lunch at the Snow Park on Tuesday. Thank you to the 24 wonderful OWA volunteers that helped us feed 1900 riders, we could not have done that without you. Now we are busy planning our fall social, because next month we get to celebrate our chapter actively meeting for one year!! Thanks again to everyone who has helped make this happen, our chapter continues to grow and I am sure we will continue to accomplish great things.
