Gorge Days Report

The Skamania County Chamber of Commerce wants to thank the community of North Bonneville for supporting a wonderful Gorge Days weekend last month. The drizzle kept some of the car owners away but those who attended the festivities had a great time. We had over 50 vehicles of every age, make and color at the car show and hundreds of people enjoying the beauty of North Bonneville while shopping garage sales and taking part in the many activities in City Park.

A big thank you goes to the Gorge Days planning committee: Julie Stevens, Fern Armstrong, Darlene Caird, Tina Smith, Cindy Medlin, Don Stevens, Marfa Scheratski and EJ Tippel. Thanks also to Richard Lafayette and the entire North Bonneville Public Works crew for all of their hard work ensuring the park looked great. Please visit our website, www.gorgedays.net for a full list of volunteers. Also, more than 25 local businesses and individuals stepped up to sponsor trophies which the winners were thrilled to receive.

An extra special thank you goes to Darlene Caird for her many years of organizing the citywide garage sales that take place during Gorge Days. She has taken on this task for at least 15 years and with her super diligent efficiency, the garage sales have grown and are an integral part of Gorge Days. Darlene will be stepping down in 2017 and we are seeking someone to volunteer for that role. If you are interested in joining the Gorge Days planning committee (an extremely fun group of folks!), please call Casey at the Chamber, 509-427-8911.

All in all, Gorge Days was a fabulous celebration of North Bonneville and we look forward to next year. Mark your calendars for Friday-Saturday, July 7-8, 2017!
