NOWA at 2019 Riverfest

Dennis Clay, Matt Liere, and Dennis Dauble “manned” a NOWA booth at Riverfest 2019 in Kennewick’s Columbia Park on Saturday, September 7.

Over 5,000 people attended the day long event.

Several potential supporting members, in addition to people interested in writing and photography as a vocation, were provided information on NOWA activities.



I finally got the brace for my broken neck off a week ago. I want to thank all those at the conference who helped me enjoy the event. It is great to be part of the NOWA family and feel the care that is shared.  Looking forward to seeing all of you again in The Dalles next year.

Troy Rodakowki crossed the Pacific Ocean for his “regular job” and showed us how mixing business and pleasure is done!
