More than 200 classified school employees are expected to vote Wednesday, Nov. 20, on a new contract proposal from the Snoqualmie Valley School District. The proposal is the first that the local Public School Employees (PSE) bargaining team has agreed to bring to its general membership. It’s also long-awaited, since the union began negotiating a new contract with the Snoqualmie Valley School District last April. “We’re working under an expired contract,” PSE President Jill Holen told the Record last week via telephone. The contract, covering most of the district’s non-teaching and non-secretarial employees, officially expired Sept. 1. By state law, though, the terms of the contract remain in effect for the next year —or until a new contract is approved, which Holen is hoping might happen next week.

For the last three years, close to Halloween, several volunteers come together to produce a fundraiser which benefits the Mount Si Food Bank. It is a walking play with several scenes staged along a dark trail through the wilderness area behind the police station on Snoqualmie Ridge. It stays true to the Halloween theme with mummies, creatures of the night, zombies, et cetera. We batch groups of ten or twelve, spacing them so each group will come on each scene after the preceding group has gone on down the trail.

Neither early nor late, North Bend’s celebration of Arbor Day, Thursday, Nov. 14, included ideal weather for planting trees. But then, this time of year is usually good for that, says North Bend Senior Planner Mike McCarty. Although Washington usually celebrates the event in April, North Bend declared its own Arbor Day last week, because “this is typically the best time of year to plant trees,” says McCarty. “We have such mild winters, it gives the roots more time to get established.”

Thank you, Snoqualmie! Throughout my campaign, I talked extensively with neighbors and area leaders about the community we love and call home. My goal was to be accessible and responsive to residents, while also working hard on specific priorities. During recent community events, including Snoqualmie Railroad Days, Boeing Classic, Snoqualmie Ridge ROA Annual Picnic, and Snoqualmie Valley Block Party, I listened to hundreds of residents. While going door-to-door, I handed out hundreds of flyers and learned through our neighbors that there is much to be proud of and celebrate in Snoqualmie, but there are also opportunities and challenges to address.
