Welcome to Cashmere! On behalf of my fellow board members and local businesses, I’m proud to welcome you to Cashmere and to Founders’ Days. The Cashmere Chamber of Commerce is 100 members strong, and has been organizing Founders’ Days since the “diamond jubilee” of our town back in 1979. We’ve grown over the last 32 years from a one-day festival to a weekend of community events. In addition to putting on Founders’ Days, your chamber is deeply involved in promoting all that Cashmere’s business community has to offer, and I encourage you to drop in on some of our local businesses and give them your support. You’ll also find many exciting new businesses in our area, so if you haven’t shopped or dined in Cashmere lately, you’re in for a surprise!

Patti Davis On behalf of the chamber and the Founders’ Days organizing committee, I particularly want to thank the many generous businesses who have contributed to this year’s event. Patti Davis, President

Cashmere Royalty’s welcome Welcome to Cashmere’s annual celebration, Founders’ Days! This special weekend is full of exciting festivities for the whole family. I would like to start by introducing myself. My name is Chelsea Stubbs, Queen Cashmere. I am accompanied by Mayra Hurtado and Ariel Lynch, princesses of Cashmere. We would like to give you a warm welcome to our home, Cashmere! Founders’ Days is our town celebration and we would like to invite everybody to come! Growing up in Cashmere, Founders Days has always been a summer highlight for me. From the ping pong ball drop, to browsing at the vendors shops set up, dancing in the streets to live bands, and who could forget the annual parade Saturday evening! Cashmere’s Founders’ Days is more than just

great entertainment and shopping, it’s a chance for the people of Cashmere to come together and appreciate this small town for what it truly is: a family. Cashmere would like to invite everyone, from far to near, to come dance, play, laugh, and help celebrate our Founders’ Days. I hope to see everyone at the Apple Annie Grand Parade downtown Saturday evening, where the Cashmere, Washington community float will be swingin’ and swayin’ with records playing as we all dance in the streets! Ariel, Mayra and I will be giving a smile and a wave to you all, as everybody does in this friendly town. Sincerely, Chelsea Stubbs Queen Cashmere

Cashmere Founders’ Days • June 23, 2010

2010 Founding Family:

A short history of Archie Smith The Cashmere Museum and Pioneer Village has chosen the family of Archibald and Louisa Smith as the 2010 Founding Family. Their descendents will be celebrated at events throughout Founders’ Days weekend. Archibald Frederick Smith was born in Danglingworth, England to railroad worker William Smith and his wife, Matilda. He was one of seven children, and as the family grew, they were to find that making a living in England in the latter part of the 19th century would prove very difficult. Knowing what a toll the physical labor took on his father, Archie decided to look to the new world to make his way, and hearing of the opportunities in North America, he saved up for steerage passage to Canada on the Old Dominion Line. Packing up his worldly goods, he bade a tearful farewell to his

family and sailed in 1894. However, the depression set off by the “Panic of 1893” resulted in widespread unemployment. The 17-year-old moved from Nova Scotia to Manitoba, working here and there, until he reached British Columbia. Though jobs there were plentiful, the young Archie Smith learned of job opportunities and the scenic beauty of the Wenatchee Valley and arrived with little more than a blanket roll. He quickly found work chopping cordwood for the paddlewheel boats which carried cargo and passengers up and down the Columbia River. Archie worked in the small settlement of Colockum, and it was here that he met his future bride, the tall, redheaded Louisa Hamilton. Her father, John, emigrated to the states from Ireland as an indentured servant, working off his indebtedness to an em-

Hamilton’s family may well have taken advantage of the offer to move west. They settled in the small mission village that later would be known as Cashmere. Archie, on his days off from cutting wood for the steam ship companies, explored a newlyopened road from Colockum to Wenatchee, continuing on to Leavenworth. He explored the valley from one end to the other, looking for the perfect homestead, coming to settle along a new irrigation project

in Peshastin. He quit his job and threw himself into the new irrigation project along Peshastin creek. After the ditch’s completion, he hired on as one of the first “ditch walkers,” a job not without its perils: once he was caught in a “wash out” when the flooding waters broke out of their banks and cascaded down the mountains. While Archie worked on newer, larger irrigation projects, he See SMITH on Page 11

The Pioneer Village is located on the grounds of the Cashmere Museum. It consists of 20 original structures, including the Smith’s cabin, a barber shop, general store, saddle shop, post office, saloon and more. The village provides a fascinating glimpse at our local history.

Photographing Cashmere Royalty By Michael Thresher, River Street Photography As you can see by the 2010 Royalty portrait, our girls went “glitzy” this year! Those dresses really get your attention! Of course it was quite a challenge to photograph and print images that truly capture the feeling of the theme. The dresses and crowns are so sparkly a traditional exposure would never work – any automated meter would say the scene was much brighter than it truly was. Luckily the girls chose to have their publicity portraits done in the studio this year, so we got to work with our

computerized lighting system. It really gave us a dynamic image! Also the girls did not want to wear their sashes with their names on them – it just didn’t seem to fit the style of the portrait. So we used some digital magic and included their names on the border of the portrait. The result is a beautiful image that I am very pleased with. Everyone seems to enjoy it and we are very proud to support our Royalty in this way. The 2010 Royalty image is being distributed to businesses and individuals who generously support the Cashmere Float Association.

Janet Drew has a voice that has often been described as angelic. With lyrics that reach straight to the heart, the combination of her voice and beautiful musical arrangements pack a powerful emotional impact. Drew’s latest CD, This Road, is her most ambitious and personal recording to date. It pairs the instant familiarity of her voice with pop/country, bluegrass and emotive ballad arrangements of 13 original songs. Lyrical themes range from memoirs of home and family to the hope and struggle of everyday life. Prior to This Road, Drew released her first two recordings – Boundless and Starlight. Boundless offers a collection of original Janet Drew

Ravin’wolf Ravin’wolf is set to perform from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Cashmere Cider Mill. The concert is a free outdoor all ages event in conjunction with Founder’s Days. Donations for the band are welcomed. The concert is outdoors and seating is on the lawn, so bring blankets and folding chairs. Ravin’wolf is touring in promotion of their new CD, “Live at the Columbia City Theater.” For full Ravin’wolf calendar updates visit their website at www.ravinwolf. com. Tucked away in the sacred canyons of Central Washington State, where Seattle meets the Sage, is found Ravin’wolf, one of the Pacific Northwest’s most captivating and in demand acoustic

blues acts. This one of a kind pair slips in and out of the genre with ease to explore the psychedelic edges and defy the boundaries of their blues influences, to take their audience on a raunchy yet mystical journey into Sagebrush Blues...a shotgun wedding of blues rock fusion...and southern back-porch jelly...saddled up next to the pop edge...with an old school delivery. Originally from the sagebrush in Kittitas County, they are deemed to be the next best ’new find’ on the Seattle blues scene. Ravin’wolf was recently nominated for the “Best of the Blues 2010” Best Blues Solo/ Duo Award by the Washington Blues Society of Seattle, and has been submerging themselves in feral blues and non-stop gig-

ging, sharpening their double sided six-string performance to a razor’s edge, honing their live performance together and becoming increasingly familiar as “that male-female duo that defies musical boundaries you’ve just gotta hear!” The Pacific Northwest’s “best kept secret in blues” they tuck themselves into the wild west tourist towns, winery concert venues and festivals throughout the year where they are wowing surprised ears and leaving audiences wondering where they’ve been all this time. Under the vigilant eye of founding members Jamey and FaeRaven, Ravin’wolf has gained creative strength over the past two years with a nomination for the 2010 Independent Music Awards. They are pleased to be enjoying the longevity of their artistry while undertaking a pathway into joint authorship and the publishing world as performing songwriters in the industry. In the years since their formation, they have had the privilege to headline with acts such as Elvin Bishop, Alice Stuart, Nick Vigarino, Terry Robb, Too Slim and the Taildraggers, Mary McPage and Seattle’s Flowmotion and Deadwood Revival.

Red Means Go In fall of 2007, Jazmarae Beebe and Skyler Mehal met in the same dorm hall and decided to play

together. This meeting was the beginning of Jaz and Skyler— which then morphed into Red Means Go. The singing/songwriting duo’s unique blend of jazz, pop, and indie creates a perfect blend with their piano/guitar-based songs

and their unique voices. They quickly became popular amongst students at Central Washington University and soon were approached by a bass player and a drummer. Tom Noble became their powerhouse drummer and Janss Woldseth became their slapping bassist in the fall of 2008.

Red Means Go adds a new sound to the mix when they plug in, but keep their roots in jazz/ pop/indie genre. By winter of 2008, Markus Hoyer added a new depth to their sound with backup guitar and vocals. Soon after Markus joined, the band went into the studio and recorded their first album.

Smith: Bought 87 acres from the railroad Continued from Page 5

was determined to save enough money to buy his own team of horses to hire out for the backbreaking work. He saved enough money with this scheme to buy 83 acres of timbered land along the Wenatchee River from the Northern Pacific Railroad Company. Using the timber he felled on his new property, he built himself and his family a one-room log cabin. Archie and Louisa’s family would grow beyond those four walls, but the structure survives to this day in the Cashmere Museum’s Pioneer Village as Archie Smith settled in the area before it was named Cashmere. the General Store. Smith was born in England.

The Founding Family Reception takes place at the Cashmere Museum on Saturday, June 26 from 2 to 4 p.m. Pictured are the Museum hostesses for the reception, from left, Linda Frost-Rawley, Nancy Valeson and Joyce Dronen. Not in the picture is Annette Gilmer.

2010 Poster Contest Winners

The annual poster contest, organized by the Cashmere Museum, features the Founding Family, Archibald Frederick Smith & Louise Hamilton Smith. Pictured, from left, second place winner Samantha Lippert, first place winner Patricia Alamanza, and third place winner William Cass. One of the first signs of Founders’ Days is the annual poster contest honoring the year’s chosen Founding Family, Archibald Frederick Smith & Louise Hamilton Smith. Organized by the Cashmere Museum and Pioneer Village, the contest features the fourth grade artists of Vale Elementary School. Students were given background on the Smiths, from Archie’s birth in England to his marriage and career as an orchardist and county commissioner. Students also received drawing and postermaking lessons. Some chose to depict the Smith home, built in 1912 in Dryden; others depicted Archibald and Louisa’s wedding. Judges met at the Senor Center and, with the artists’ names hid-

den, selected the winners. Following selection of the winners, their entries appeared in business windows throughout Cashmere during the first week of June. Following are this year’s poster contest winners: First Place: Patricia Alamanza Second Place: Samatha Lippert Third Place: William Cass Honorable Mention: Rhiannon Strutzel, Cami Knishka, Ashlyn Cockrum, Rainey Reed and Jorge Rodriquez. Poster Contest Supporters: Penny Brouillette, Cashmere Museum and Pioneer Village, Cashmere Senior Center Volunteers, Cashmere Valley Bank, Cashmere Senior Center, Gail Cates and Vale Elementary School.
