Letters to the Editor
This letter is an expression of thanks to our family and friends who helped us celebrate 50 years of marriage. Our family gave us a party at the Woodman Lodge, with amazing planning, including great food, wonderful old family pictures, beautiful decorations, a fabulous photographer (Mary Miller Photography) and the best cakes ever!
Community Events, September 2014
I am pleased to see my Congressman, Dave Reichert, receive recognition for a job well done for the residents of the 8th District. In late July, the House Natural Resources Committee scheduled a Reichert-sponsored bill to the floor for a vote that expands the Alpine Lakes Wilderness area and puts protections on the Middle Fork-Snoqualmie River.
Washington state is set to receive nearly $1 million for four local park and trail projects from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund, or LWCF. The city of North Bend will receive $250,000 to build a plaza and loop trail in Torguson Park, unifying the city’s main athletic fields by providing a central gathering space.
The President’s Cup Golf Tournament, held June 30 at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge, was another enormous success. On behalf of Snoqualmie Valley Rotary, I want to express our appreciation to sponsors and participants who propelled us to raise $54,000 for Rotary First Harvest, the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank and other local organizations. Our primary sponsor, Snoqualmie Casino, was generous in their support and played a critical role in making the day’s festivities a huge hit.
Another Fourth of July has passed, and what a fourth it was! The day was perfect. We started with the 5K fun run, which had more than 600 registered runners and walkers, and ended with a speculator fireworks display. But what a parade! We had the Seattle Chinese Community Girls Drill Team back, and the Ixtapa horses. I think they doubled in size this year, and were outstanding.
