Description

Please join the Riverside International Friendship Gardens in dedicating our newest Garden, the Cameroon Garden, on Thursday, October 10th at 1:30 PM at the Riverside International Friendship Gardens in Riverside Park. The Cameroon Garden is located on the west side of the Convention and Visitors’ Bureau in Riverside Park in Downtown La Crosse.

The public is welcome. Tours of the new garden will be provided following the ceremony.
 
The Cameroon Garden honors our Sister City Kumbo, Cameroon. The garden celebrates the rich cultural traditions of Cameroon and provides a gathering place where the “Three Rivers” meet. It features colors found in the Cameroon flag, and artwork specially designed and crafted to honor Cameroon's unique culture and history. It is designed to serve as a model for community and international service.
 
Guest speakers will include:
  • Attorney Chuck Hanson, President, Riverside International Friendship Gardens
  • Tim Kabat, Mayor, City of La Crosse
  • Tami Woods, President, Rotary Club of La Crosse
  • Sister Eileen McKenzie, President, Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration
  • A representative from Kumbo, Cameroon
The public is also warmly invited to an additional tour at the garden from 5:00 - 6:00 PM, followed by a celebration hosted by The La Crosse Friends of Cameroon. The celebration will include music, drumming, dancing and light refreshments.  
 
The new Cameroon Garden was made possible thanks to generous donations from community members and area businesses; and through the efforts of area Rotary Clubs who collaborated on this project in celebration of 100 years of Rotary in our region.
