Fall City Day has come and gone, but the thank-you’s roll on. Weather was perfect for 800 runners who participated in the Fall City Days Fun Run. Our amazing crew of volunteers led by Perry and Sharon Wilkins, Kirk and Sophie Harris, and Kirk Dunckel organized and ran a great event. Even more fun comes in September when we give away all of our proceeds, minus costs, back to our community organizations. The Raging River Riders 50th anniversary was evident in the parade and fair theme. Thank you to Libby, Laurie E., Lisa, Nikki, Brandon, Bill A. and Dan and Terri D., as they did a great job on everyone’s favorite part of the day.

I’d like to send out a truly heartfelt “Thank You” to all of the students, staff and their families at the Snoqualmie Valley schools for their generous support and items donated toward the American Legion Auxiliary’s care packages. These donations, along with beautiful artwork and letters of support, were sent in care packages to a troop of soldiers deployed from Joint Base Lewis McChord. The soldiers appreciated knowing that citizens were thinking about them, while they were far from home during the holidays. We sent 33 boxes, one for each soldier, filled with items that make them a little more comfortable and remind them of home. Each package was received with a smile.
