Partner up with WL Parks & Rec
Do you have a local business in need of exposure in the community?
Perhaps a partnership or paid sponsorship could be the marketing tool you need to boost your name recognition and reach your target audience.
West Linn Parks & Recreation can help with that. The parks department holds numerous events throughout the year, and they draw big crowds of your fellow citizens.
In the spring, Earth Day Work Day provides volunteer opportunities for company team building, as well as paid sponsorship opportunities.
The Mother Son Empire Event and Daddy Daughter Dance are two opportunities for gift bag sponsorships. Consider them if you are looking to reach local families with school age children.
In the summer the Music in the Park concert series at Tanner Creek Park, Movies in the Park, and Street Dance are occasions for exposure to larger audiences.
The Old Time Fair is an extremely affordable way to have a pop-up vendor space for direct sales or to talk one-on-one to potential customers.
Additionally, there are various chances to sponsor individual events during the three-day fair, such as the Recycle Regatta boats races or the PJ's to Pancakes run.
Sponsorship of the shuttle bus offers a visible promotion traveling through the Willamette Historic District during the three days while other onsite advertisements include banners hung over the two entertainment stages or donation of products or services to the raffle.
The fall and winter seasons bring their own opportunities with the Community Tree Lighting, the Lighting at Maddax Woods and the Holiday Parade.
Don't miss these parks and recreation happenings during March:
Coyle Outside Spring Break Camps — Join us for camps that encourage students to practice skills and think critically in the outdoors. All classes meet at Mary S. Young Park under the picnic shelter.
School's Out! Let's Go Fishing Camp — In this five-day camp we explore local fishing holes and lots of "angles" on fishing. Balancing teaching time with fishing fun, campers learn how to handle a rod and reel, tackle and bait, how to clean fish, and primitive fishing methods. With luck we might even do a fish fry.
Campers will enjoy a trip to the Mt. Hood Community College pond, weather and water level permitting. Bring your own pole or use one of ours. Lunch, snacks, waterproof shoes and raingear required for this adventure. Camp is for ages 7-14 and meetings Monday through Friday, March 23-27, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost is $194 for West Linn residents.
