Dear Valley Record, thank you for keeping me informed about issues, events and good things that are happening in our Valley. You are the eyes and ears for those of us who can’t make it to every school board meeting, football game, or artistic event that is going on in the Snoqualmie Valley. I love reading about the future of our students and witness the celebrations of a new birth or 50th anniversary.
You keep me informed of the growth of our Valley and give people an opportunity to air their grievances if need be. Your paper brings us all together and you are doing a wonderful job.
As a member of the Snoqualmie Arts Commission (SAC), I’d like to thank you for your articles about the events and new opportunities the SAC has taken on. The opportunities for artists in the Valley are growing. We are rotating art in City Hall and the Chamber of Commerce and always looking for new artists. And we just started displaying artwork in the empty storefronts of Snoqualmie. I also thank you for reporting on our Plein Air Paint Out and Baroque Concert in the Park featuring our MSHS girls Chamber Choir. They were both huge successes and you helped get the word out.
Another exhibit to note, the Snoqualmie Valley Historical Society has loaned the SAC photos of the Valley back in the early 1900s. The public is invited to view them at Snoqualmie City Hall and the Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center on River Street. They are beautiful and will hang through the end of October. Our November show will feature “Artists Choice” and submissions are currently being accepted.
Good things are happening in this Valley and I thank you for sharing the news with us. I look forward to seeing your paper on my front porch.
