The My Fair Lady and Gentleman Pageant is held during the Columbia County Fair each year to recognize seniors (55+) for their outstanding community service. The 2023 Annual My Fair Lady and Gentleman Pageant is scheduled to be held at 1 p.m. July 19th at the fairgrounds in St Helens.
The 2023 My Fair Lady and Gentlemen Court was welcomed during the tea at Caples House on May 23rd. These 5 senior volunteers have embraced this opportunity through participation in the St Helens Kiwanis Parade, Clatskanie 4th of July Parade, and Heritage Days Parade. They will continue to serve their community throughout the year at public events and in their own communities.
The Public is welcome to celebrate these volunteers’ accomplishments during the 2023 Pageant on July 19th at 1:00 pm. The Columbia County Fair is FREE for Seniors and Veterans on opening day, with a FREE lunch served to Seniors and Veterans at 11:00 am. Lunch is first-come, first-served. Thank you to Columbia County Commissioners, Amamere-St Helens, InRoads Credit Union, and Teevin Bros for sponsoring this year’s lunch, prepared by the St Helens Senior Center.
