Third Annual Landscape & Maintenance Industry Trade Show & Field Days


What a success the third annual equipment show was with 19 vendors from the Washington Association of Landscaping Professionals (WALP) displaying their equipment at Vancouver Lake Park. Good weather, good food and great company! Fun was had by all who attended – 300+ hot dogs were consumed!

GEM Members, Gil Mitchell and Sharon Morgan made sure to share the GEM concept with many. And congratulations to Shawn Lorang, an employee of C-Tran! Shawn won the drawing for a small Stihl rototiller!

Also present was a Response Unit from Multnomah County and the C-Tran Van with the GEM Display.

Special thanks to the following GEM Members:

• Clark Public Utilities for putting up all the tents
• City of Vancouver for the use of the Gas Grill
• Clark County Parks for use of the park
