2013 Oregon Waterfowl Festival update

Postby JimboPDX » Wed May 01, 2013 12:35 am

Quick update on the 2013 Oregon Waterfowl Festival being held June 29th & 30th at the Columbia County Fairgrounds in St Helens, OR.

First of all we have a very active group of volunteers but can always can use more. Shoot me a PM if you would like to help or get on the volunteer list. Or better yet attend one of the planning meetings held at Chevy's Mexican Restaurant in Lake Oswego. Meetings are held every other Monday at 6:30pm. May 6th, May 20th & June 3rd are the next scheduled ones. Hope to see you there.

If you have not looked at the new website, its pretty sweet. http://www.oregonwaterfowlfestival.com
