YouTube Thursdays - Sharing the local scoop.
Most of us live in communities with little known gems, or quirky things that only the true locals know about. For example, in Camas, there is a private residence known as "the castle." We wrote a post about it in 2013, The Camas Castle. It's definitely an oddity that gets attention. And, we think it would be a perfect subject for a video series called, We Know Camas!
Another interesting landmark in Camas is the Leadbetter House located on the shores of Lacamas Lake. The Queen Anne Victorian house was actually a gift from parents to their son, and his new bride, Bertha Leadbetter.
Speaking of Lacamas Lake, every Fall, the lake is drained for an annual clean-up. This event would also make an interesting video story. There are competitions and prizes for the most trash picked up, most unusual find, etc.
You get the idea.
We're also considering an expanded version called "We Know Clark County!" Many of the towns in Clark County have interesting names, we think the stories behind the names would be fun to explore via video. For example, Felida was named by a postmaster who wanted to name the post office after his cat. He was denied, but got the last laugh by naming it Felidae (cats), or Felida.
Consider all of the possibilities. Short and entertaining video stories showcasing how well you know your marketplace could be shared on a multitude of platforms.
