Letters | Elk group offers thanks for an important night

The Upper Snoqualmie Valley Elk Management Group held its annual Wild Game Dinner and Auction at the recently renovated Sno-Valley Senior Center in Carnation on June 2. Guests were treated to a “five star” dinner prepared by Chef Don Hoots of the Woodman Lodge and served by its staff and Mount Si High School students participating in the culinary arts program. The principal entrée was Elk Trio—an elk loin fillet wrapped in bacon, skewered elk steak, and spiced elk meatballs.

Elk management group members wish to thank the many donors of items for the auction, which was a huge success.

Funds raised from the event will pay for additional telemetry collars and tracking of cow elk within the local herd, elk population research and wildlife habitat improvement outside the Valley floor.

Our many donors included Ace Hardware, Outdoor Emporium, Les Schwab Tire Centers, Honda/Kubota of Issaquah, Landscape Enterprise, Inc., Mount Si Golf Course, Museum Quality Framing of Issaquah, Newcastle Golf Course, SnoFalls Golf Course, TPC Golf Course, Roaring River Bed & Breakfast, Snoqualmie Tribe, North Bend Therapeutic Massage, Peace Within Massage, Keith & Scott Tree Farm, North Bend NAPA Auto Parts, The Nursery at Mount Si, Browning Dentistry, Western Tugboat Co., Maura Callahan, Matt Yancey, Jerry Koepping and Bob Folkman.
