Back to School Expo 2016

Presented by the Owen Co. Chamber of Commerce

The Owen Co. Chamber of Commerce will host a Back to School Expo for area families on Saturday, July 23rd from 1:00 p.m – 3:00 p.m. at the Owen Valley Middle School. This event will be FREE to the public.

This event will be a powerful informational, educational and recreational resource for parents and children.

To make this successful, we need the help from organizations such as health care providers, financial institutions, child care providers, camp directors, sports leagues, educational leaders and many more. We are offering low-cost exhibitor spaces for these organizations to represent their products and services.  While these are few ideas we have, we are open to other areas of interest.

  • Health care providers & Dentists on site with wellness information
  • Financial Institutions (savings accounts for kids, college savings plans)
  • Counselors (anti-bullying information, etc.) & D.A.R.E. drug program
  • Daycare providers, summer camps, after school programs & youth groups
  • Educational leaders, schools, colleges
  • Library  (reading programs)
  • Touch-a-Truck (vehicles on display from Fire, Police, EMS, School Bus)
  • Sports league information, Extra-Curricular activities


If this is an event you would like to participate in, please contact me at 812-829-3245 or chamber.owen@gmail.com.
