Busy hands, purposeful life

For Best Volunteer Nels Melgaard, life is about activity, helping others By Seth Truscott Editor

Nels Melgaard was staffing Sallal Grange’s Dairy Drive table at the North Bend QFC, as he’s wont to do on Tuesday evenings, when a woman approached and decided to help. Collecting basics like cheese and butter for the local food bank, Melgaard and fellow Grange volunteers also set out a little cash drawer, and passersby had dropped in a few five and ten-dollar bills. When the woman, who he didn’t know, dropped in a folded check, Melgaard thanked her and thought nothing of it until the end of their shift, when they counted the money. Unfolded, the check was made out for $500. “You know, you just don’t know,” Melgaard says, recounting the incident. Melgaard can still be surprised by local generosity, and he’d be the one to know, given the sheer amount of volunteer work the man does in the Valley. This month, Melgaard was named “Best Volunteer” by newspaper readers in the Valley Record’s “Best of the Valley” poll. Before that, he was the 2011 Citizen of the Year for North Bend. He’s an active Grange member, longtime volunteer for the Snoqualmie Valley Wrestling Club, highly active on a personal level helping others with substance abuse, and also connected and helpful to other local

efforts, such as North Bend’s downtown Block Party. A 16-year Valley resident, Melgaard is owner of The Nursery at Mount Si in North Bend, and is married to wife Anne; they have two sons, Wilkins, 16, and Christian, 12. As he explains it, his community service is a product of his upbringing, and his own itch to accomplish. “An idle mind and an idle body is dangerous,” Melgaard says. “I can’t sit still… In all things in life, the only way you keep what you have is by giving it away. What you put out comes back to you.” He credits his parents—father Paul, who died two years ago, and mother Marilynn, who lives in the Midwest—with inspiring a life of activity. “I had an example growing up,” he said. “My parents were involved with a lot of things, whether it was planning commission, city council.” Elected office isn’t really his thing, but as Melgaard says, “There is plenty to do.” Sallal Grange, which closed briefly after a long local history, re-opened thanks to the efforts of Melgaard and others to bring it back with a new, younger focus on music and families. Melgaard is humbled by the recognition. “People say, ‘So what are you going to do now?’ I go, ‘Nothing, that was last year. Someone else is going to be running it.’” To Melgaard, that anonymous Dairy Drive donation shows how easy it can be to make a difference. “If you’re not there, it’s out of sight and out of mind,” he says. “When people want to contribute, make it convenient for them, and they will step up.”

Life is about being busy for North Bend’s Nels Melgaard. Tending plants at his business, the Nursery at Mount Si, Melgaard is active with Sallal Grange, youth wrestling, and other activities. He says it’s easy to get involved in your community, if the avenues are visible.

Celebrating her 25th year with the credit union this February, Linda Trombley rose from being a teller to becoming a branch manager and loan officer. Sno Falls has invested in her career, and she is equally invested in the business on a personal level. A North Bend resident, Trombley is one of those lucky locals who are deeply connected to their hometown, where they live and work. At Sno Falls, we are community-chartered,” she said. “I’ve been able to move up, but I’m staying in our community.” “For me, it’s in the community where I have grown up. Our members are people that I know. There’s a connection with the community.” She also likes the atmosphere— “I’ve always enjoyed my coworkers... they’re generally community people, too.” Ian Rillios, a 19-year-old Fall City resident, took a job at Sno Falls’ Wildcat Branch as part of his accounting studies at Mount Si High School. He’s now working full time at the credit union. Rillios is translating that original part-time experience into a career. He loves the financial field, and is continuing his studies in finance. From the student job, “I just kept progressing, learning more stuff,” said Rillios. For him, the best part of the job is that “You keep learning, every single day.”

Spirit, mind and body Snoqualmie Valley YMCA named Best Organization to Join According to Dave Mayer, director of the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, the Y’s mission is to build a community where all people, especially the young, are encouraged to develop their fullest potential in spirit, mind and body. “At the Y, strengthening community is our cause,” he said. “We do this intentionally with programs that center around youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We work side-byside with our neighbors throughout the Snoqualmie Valley to help kids and families thrive—and apply their positive behaviors and goals at home, school, the workplace and beyond.” Seth Truscott/Staff Photo

Dave Mayer, founding director of Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, voted “Best Organization to Join” for 2012, said the Y helps build values and skills in young people.

Youth development “We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life,” Mayer said.

Being healthy means more than simply being physically active, Mayer says. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. To date, nearly 2,800 people have joined the local Y, said Mayer, who anwered the following questions about the organization:

How are you connecting with families and children? We are connecting with families by bringing them together in a community environment where they can interact with each other in a healthy and positive setting. Families have the opportunity to play basketball, go on a hike, take a group exercise class and just have fun with each other on a day-to-day basis through engaging programs. Kids are connected through a variety of youth and teen programs like After Zone (for teens) and Kids University (school-age children). They have the ability to get a

youth fitness orientation, participate as a volunteer and have fun playing dodge ball in the gym. We also give parents the opportunity to get a great workout in and take a class while their kids are cared for in our free Kids Zone Care where great staff keep them safe and have fun!

What does the future hold for the Snoqualmie Y? We are looking forward to our first full summer and all the great programs and activities that go along with that. We have an array of summer programs that parents can check out at ysummer.org or stopping in at the branch. We are also looking forward to developing programs for preschool age children and getting our youth sports programs going. We will also be releasing “Get Outside with the Y” for some fun and interactive outdoor activities during the summer months that the whole community can be involved with. We will continue to hold focus groups to make sure we engage our community the right way with programs and activities.”

The successes the City of North Bend has seen in the past five to 10 years is a result of all these volunteer efforts and community support.

Absher, while not Absher, was again chosen dispatched to the incident, Best Police Officer. “He deserves it. He’s my was on the riverbank, waitfavorite cop and a good ing to pull them both to guy,” said Summers, who safety. “That guy goes above and has been a full-time firebeyond. Seeing Sean on the fighter with the Snoqualmie Department since Jan. 1, shore with his throw bag

in May of last year, was a heavy moment in my life,” Summers said. “If anyone deserves a ‘best’ category, it’s that guy.” Summers received a Medal of Valor from the city for the rescue, and Absher received a Medal of Merit. Although he was on vacation last week, Summers took some time to answer a few questions about his work.

What made you become a firefighter? I ended up in this line of work because I love helping people. My parents were always quick to jump in and help someone in need, and I learned early on not to just drive by someone who

needed help. I was a volunteer firefighter for two years before I got hired and I was hooked….I should probably think about moving up in my career but I’m happy with my duties and have a lot of pride in what I do. I’d much rather be in harm’s way than order someone else to do it.

they are my world. I live right here in Snoqualmie with my girlfriend, Nicole, who is also a volunteer firefighter and EMT. We spend most of our time raising the boys and try to spend our free time in the outdoors. We love rock climbing and find our solace up in the mountains.

You’re a genuine hero to a lot of people. Who were your heroes in life?

What’s the best part about working in Snoqualmie?

We have a great group of firefighters in this city. I’d still be volunteering if I didn’t get hired full time. Living in the community that I work in means a lot to me, this is my hometown. I love my job. This acknowledgement means a lot, too, as it comes from the folks of the community I serve. It’s a real honor. • Learn more about the Snoqualmie Fire Department at www. ci.snoqualmie.wa.us/
