is a 501(C)(3) organization that has been in operation for more than twenty years. We have a 23 member board of volunteers who represent businesses located downtown Kent. We are members of the Main Street Program under the State of Washington with a common goal to revitalize downtown. We strive to sustain the businesses that exist currently and bring more activity, including shopping, dining and residential downtown. It sounds simple saying â€œrevitalizeâ€? downtown but there are many facets to accomplishing this.

About the Chamber The City of Kent enjoys a vibrant sense of community. It is a place where local government, private citizens and businesses are partners working together to provide innovative solutions for the challenges facing the city as it grows. If you Andrea Keikkala are not a member of the Kent Chamber of Commerce you are missing he opportunity to partner with some of the most influential businesses in the community! Make that call and become part of an organization that takes every opportunity to share resources, information and network all types of businesses. In todayâ€™s business environment, it is imperative that the Chamber represents and protects your business by working hard to support every aspect of doing business in the Kent Valley. Join together with our Chamberâ€™s founding fathers and celebrate the freedom and honor of living and doing business in Kent since our beginnings in the year of 1948. Like many of the cities across the United States, our community has weathered challenging economic times, and yet we remain steadfast in our determination to move positively toward a better future. The Kent Chamber is the voice and ears of the
community, responsive to its ever changing needs and concerns. We currently have 450 member companies representing nearly 26,000 employees. The Kent Chamber is committed to sharing the physical, cultural and intellectual strengths of our citizens and businesses and transforming those unique qualities into sustainable and positive developments that will benefit our citizens as we FIND IT IN KENT. The Kent Chamber of Commerce is the largest advocate for businesses in the community. We have been a leader in the community supporting businesses by being a conduit for information to Kent businesses and residents. We support economic efforts designed to strengthen and expand the Kent community with programs of a civic, social and cultural nature that are designed to increase the functional value of the community. At the Kent Chamber of Commerce, we bring the business community together in dynamic, profitable ways. Whether members are networking with one another, learning marketing tips, immersing themselves in issues that impact business, or tapping into an array of educational services, we give local business owners the tools to help them thrive. We encourage you to get involved today. Committees are a key component of the Kent Chamber of Commerce. They are comprised of Chamber members and are formed to address specific issues or interest areas. They are also one of the best ways for our membership to become actively involved in policy development around various issues. It is this
type of grassroots involvement that sets a Chamber of Commerce apart from other organizations, which claim to represent business but, in effect, only reflect the views of a small group of individuals. Without the vibrant and open committee structure in place at the Kent Chamber of Commerce the Chamber would cease to be an effective voice for business. Our Members Enjoy Access To â€“ t.BSLFUJOHWFIJDMFTUPSFBDIUBSHFUFEDVTUPNFST t&EVDBUJPOSFTPVSDFTUPIFMQTVTUBJOBOEHSPX healthy companies. t"EWPDBDZPOJTTVFTJNQPSUBOUUP,FOUCVTJ nesses. t/FUXPSLJOHPQQPSUVOJUJFTUPHFUUPLOPXPUIFS business people and do business together.

Community Parks Despite the lean economic times we have all been in these past few years, Kent Parks, Recreation & Community Servicesâ€™ focus prevails: providing our community with safe and inviting parks, playgrounds and trails, as well as quality recreation opportunities, cultural activities, resource referrals and senior services. There are 22 community parks throughout Kent, offering activities like boating, swimming, hiking, playgrounds, picnicking, fishing and playfields. Examples of community parks include: Lake Meridian, Morrill Meadows, Town Square Plaza, West Fenwick, and the parks along the Green River Trail. Neighborhood parks are located in areas that are easy to get to by walking or riding a bike. There are 27 neighborhood parks in Kent. For east hill residents, they include: Canterbury, Chestnut Ridge, Eastridge, Green Tree, Meridian Glen, North Meridian, Park Orchard and Turnkey. In the valley area near downtown are four Kiwanis Tot Lots. West hill residents can enjoy Linda Heights Park, Glenn Nelson Park and Salt Air Vista Park. Kent Parks has many recreational destinations that attract visitors traveling by foot, bicycle or skateboard. These include our three skate parks, one in each geographic area: Kent Lions Skate Park, West Hill Skate Park and Arbor Heights 360. Enormously popular are the athletic complexes: Uplands Playfield, Wilson Playfields, Russell Road Park and Service Club Ballfields. Parks staff organize a number of annual community volunteer events to improve and maintain city parks and trails. In fall 2009, the City Council approved an ambitious 20-year plan called the Green Kent Partnership. Its goal is to restore and actively manage 1,344 acres of Kentâ€™s forested parks and natural areas using staff, contracted crews and â€“ a

critical element â€“ trained volunteer Stewards who lead other volunteers in work parties. In 2012, Green Kent Partnership Stewards held 29 work parties and there were 37 other restoration-focused events, culminating in our inaugural Green Kent Day, which was held on October 27 at Morrill Meadows Park and the Green River Natural Resources Area. Despite pouring rain, 201 volunteers participated. After the event, staff surveyed the Stewards who attended and served as crew leads. When asked if they felt it was worth their time to come, one responded, â€œAbsolutely! I had an amazing time! And I was so highly impressed by the turnout, considering the nasty weather we had. It warmed my heart to see such a dedicated group of people! I canâ€™t wait for next yearâ€™s event!â€? Eagle Scout projects: Since 1995, the Park staff have worked with nearly 220 Boy Scouts, providing projects and assistance to help them earn their Eagle Scout advancement. This past year, environmental restoration projects improved Tudor Square Park, Campus Park and West Fenwick Park. New trails were constructed at Morrill Meadows Offleash Dog Park and Tudor Square Park. One scout prepared the plots at the community garden and dismantled a deteriorating open shed. To help stretch taxpayer dollars and accommodate all who are seeking projects, both the city and the Eagle Scout oversight committee insist that scouts make every effort off-set the cost their projects. In 2012, the actual project costs without discounts or donations would have been $10,139.33. Because they secured donated materials, discounts and cash donations, the cityâ€™s hard costs for the 2012 program were only $1,090.23.

Kent Historical Museum Stephen Chandler www.kenthistoricalmuseum.org
The Bereiter House, home of the Kent Museum. The house was completed in 1908 by Emil Bereiter, an owner of the Covington Lumber Company and Kentâ€™s Mayor 19121913. Seven different families have lived in the building, including a pharmacist, a prominent Japanese produce dealer and an owner of the East Hill Fuel Company. The house was originally sited on nearly four acres of land with a gazebo, carriage barn, orchard, and pastures. In June 2008, the Bereiter House was nominated as a landmark through the King County Landmarks Commission. Additionally, after evaluating the earliest coats of paint, the City of Kent repainted the house, returning it to its earlier colors. Today, the Bereiter House accommodates thousands of items donated by Kent residents that are maintained and exhibited through the Greater Kent Historical Society (GKHS) and museum staff. These items help tell the story of Kent and the area timeline. Gardens on the museum grounds honor veterans who serve or have served in the Armed forces and Americans who were interned during WWII. Resources are available for research, tours are available during open hours or by appointment, and the facility is available for special occasions. Please stop by the museum at 855 East Smith St. and step back in time with the history of Kent. Our hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday, 12 noon until 4pm. Parking is in the back of the house on Temperence Street. 253-854-4330.

Can hope, achievement, and self-sufficiency come from a cup of coffee? Kona Kai Coffee knows it can. On any given night in South King County close to 400 youth are homeless, without a safe and permanent place to stay. With the goal of meeting the complex and unique needs of at-risk youth, Kona Kai’s Youth Barista Training Program was launched in 2007. The program provides at-risk youth, ages 16-23, with the opportunity to build a better future for themselves by increasing their ability to change their situation and engage in a supportive community.
Your support is always appreciated!

KENT ARTS COMMISSION Kent is a vibrant and diverse community â€“ a wonderful place to live, work, and explore. For nearly 40 years, the Kent Arts Commission and the City of Kentâ€™s Cultural Programs division have played an integral part in creating an enviable quality of life for Kent residents. Since it was founded by City ordinance in October 1975, the Kent Arts Commission has played a significant role in the vitality of the Kent community. Our award-winning public art program continues to thrive, garnering regional and national attention for projects installed in buildings and parks throughout Kent. A map of works is available at www.kentarts.com. The Centennial Center Gallery (400 West Gowe St.) showcases work by regional visual artists. Ronda Billerbeck Funding programs provide much-needed support to artists and organizations for a variety of projects. The Kent Arts Commissionâ€™s performing arts program has grown to include 30 performances each year, and special events like Kent Kidsâ€™ Arts Day, Fourth of July Splash, the Cornucopia Days Fun Run and Christmas Rush bring the community together to have fun, celebrate our heritage, and be healthy. The centerpiece of the Kent Arts Commissionâ€™s comprehensive performing arts program, Spotlight Series offers approximately 10 performances each year, including all types of music, theater, dance, and family entertainment. We have presented 150 performing companies to a total audience of 50,000 since we began the series in 1998. The numbers are impressive, but the true value of Spotlight Series lies in impacts that are more difficult to measure, but undeniably present and profound: the wonder in childrenâ€™s eyes as they discover the magic of live performance, the power of a song to offer new perspectives, the ability of a single artist to build a cohesive community from diverse individuals, the transformation that can occur when people are given the opportunity to express themselves. Spotlight Series also helps define Kent as a vibrant place to live and visit. Residents are proud of the series and we know that approximately 40% of Spotlight Series patrons come to us from outside Kent, bringing with them dollars spent at our restaurants and stores. Information about the current season schedule can be found at www.kentarts.com or by calling 253-856-5051. Kentâ€™s Summer Concert Series offers 18 free performances in three outdoor settings during the months of July and August. â€œTake-Out Tuesdayâ€? concerts entertain lunch-time crowds at Kent Station from noon to 1 p.m. On Wednesdays at noon, hundreds of children and their families flock to Town Square Plaza to play in the water fountain and enjoy â€œWednesday Picnic Performances.â€? â€œThursdays at the Lakeâ€? bring regional, national, and even international touring artists to beautiful Lake Meridian Park for performances at 7 p.m. The 2013 concerts run July 9 through August 15; the schedule will be announced soon â€“ check www. kentarts.com for details. March is National Youth Arts Month and the Kent Arts Commission celebrates with Kent Kidsâ€™ Arts Day and the Student Art Walk. Kidsâ€™ Arts Day is a festival of hands-on art projects and performances for kids. The event, which takes place at the Kent Commons (525 4th Ave., N.), is a 26-year community tradition. Kidsâ€™ Arts Day is scheduled for Saturday, March 2, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Student Art Walk features artwork by hundreds of Kent students, displayed in downtown businesses from March 11 to 22. Kentâ€™s Fourth of July Splash brings the community together to celebrate Independence Day at Lake Meridian Park. Games, activities, and community showcase performances culminate in South King Countyâ€™s largest fireworks display over Lake Meridian. Cornucopia Days Fun Run and Christmas Rush offer opportunities for competitive runners, weekend warriors, walkers, and anyone interested in being active and having a good time to participate in regionally recognized events. Like most events in Kent, the Christmas Rush has a strong focus on youth and families, and is one of the largest runs for youth under 13 in the country. The Cornucopia Days 5K Fun Run is scheduled for Saturday, July 13. Christmas Rush offers 5K and 10K options on December 7, 2013. In addition to the events produced by the Kent Arts Commission and Cultural Programs
division, the City of Kent produces and partners with community groups to offer a wide array of other activities for all ages, interests, and cultures. Arts and community events are an important part of the fabric of Kent â€“ they bring economic benefits; they help build a strong, dynamic community; they entertain, educate, inspire and challenge us; and they are a window into various cultures. In addition to entertaining us â€“ making us gasp, laugh, smile, and clap â€“ the colorful costume of a dancer, the bold movement of an acrobat, the sweet lyrics of a song, the unparalleled feeling of crossing a finish line, the joy of coming together with neighbors, can help us better understand ourselves and others. For all these reasons, we are richer as individuals and as a community because of the many opportunities to participate in events and activities in Kent. We hope you will join us in 2013.
