Letters to the Editor
I must admit that I am still on an emotional high since our Snoqualmie Valley Historical Society’s 1940 community sing-along. What a thrill to have well over one hundred Valley neighbors gathered together for the sake of joined voices to celebrate and commemorate the pivotal time and heritage of 1940! We rarely gather together nowadays, except to confront issues or to take advantage of bargain sales. Neither was the case as joined voices were raised to recreate and celebrate our rich heritage of music in one of the more pivotal years in American history.
Community Events, December 2013
At the Feb. 28, 2013, meeting of District 410’s board, I inquired as to the status of teaching cursive in our schools. Although disappointed to learn of our lack of emphasis after teaching it in the third grade, I was somewhat encouraged by the board’s interest in the issue. Since then, I have talked to many persons, adults and students, about the use of cursive. Many of the adults had heard about the national trend of de-emphasizing cursive.
Thank you, Snoqualmie! Throughout my campaign, I talked extensively with neighbors and area leaders about the community we love and call home. My goal was to be accessible and responsive to residents, while also working hard on specific priorities. During recent community events, including Snoqualmie Railroad Days, Boeing Classic, Snoqualmie Ridge ROA Annual Picnic, and Snoqualmie Valley Block Party, I listened to hundreds of residents. While going door-to-door, I handed out hundreds of flyers and learned through our neighbors that there is much to be proud of and celebrate in Snoqualmie, but there are also opportunities and challenges to address.
The Mount Si Fish and Game Club’s 2013 College Scholarships were awarded to Andrew Stringfellow and Jessica Graves, both from North Bend and graduates of Mount Si High School. The two students were selected after submitting an application and an essay on their accomplishments and interests.
