“There’s age here,” says Marcia Reinert. “There’s wonder in these walls.” Reinert, a congregation member at Snoqualmie United Methodist Church, is right. The walls of the old downtown church do tell a tale. In the dining hall, Reinert points up to a ceiling beam that dates from the original 1926 structure, surviving a catastrophic fire. Upstairs, the bride’s room has launched uncounted weddings.
Community Events, September 2014
The Riverview Education Foundation's Golf Classic, a fundraiser for Riverview Schools, is set for Saturday, Oct. 4, and registration is now open. The 16th annual event begins with golfer registration from 7 to 8 a.m., and a shotgun start at 8 a.m., at the Club at Redmond Ridge. Tee time is earlier this year, because the Homecoming celebration for Cedarcrest High School is scheduled for later that evening.
This time, Carnation may have gotten it right. Although a small majority of city voters have historically rejected any proposed tax increases for police services—the ‘no’ votes outnumbered the ‘yes’ by as few as 23 in the last three ballot measures—they could be the minority in November. Carnation’s Proposition 1 on the general election ballot is still a tax increase for police, but for increased coverage only. So, if voters approve the ballot measure in November, the city will have $70,000 to spend on things like extra night and weekend patrols and drug house surveillance, but not on the standard cost of the city’s service contract with the King County Sheriff’s Office.
Running and cycling were just the start of the activities offered at North Bend’s Adventure Sport Festival Saturday, Sept. 6. While teams and individual athletes paddled Lake Kecheelus, cycled down and through North Bend, ran the trail and came together for a final sprint to the finish, other athletes pursued their own sports.
The King County Sheriff's Office has reopened a two mile section of the Snoqualmie River from the State Route 202 bridge in Fall City to a point roughly one mile upstream of the boat ramp at Neal Road. This section was closed this summer for a construction project which has been completed.
