Irrigation Festival 2014

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 • 3

Mountains to Sea … Welcome

The 119th Sequim Irrigation Festival’s theme is “ Mountains to Sea, A Pristine Place to Be”. As Washington state’s longest continuous festival, we are constantly working on ways to keep this local celebration exciting. 2014 brings some new changes to the Festival. This year marks the first year of “Crazy Callen” Weekend which encompasses many events including the all new Family Fun Day. Formerly known as Kids Day, this event has been moved to Downtown Sequim on Washington Street where we will have over 40 activities and booths such as touch a truck, snapshots with the royalty and the strongman pulling the float. This new event is sure to be a great time for all. As citizens of this amazing city, we invite you to experience the wonderful opportunities of our small town and celebrate with us during the first two weeks of May. An event of this magnitude is made possible because of the endless hard work of the festival board of directors, the countless volunteer hours by individual and local service clubs, the businesses that recognize the value of community service and the continuous support of our sponsors. This recipe of teamwork truly makes this a “hometown” community event. Don’t forget to pick up a memento of your time enjoying the festival. We have pins, buttons, note cards, T-shirts and sweatshirts to help you remember your time in Sequim. Festival merchandise is available at the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce Visitor information Center, and Grocery Outlet. Let the festivities begin!

Deon Kapetan, Festival Director

Mayor’s welcome

Welcome to the City of Sequim for the 119th Annual Sequim Irrigation Festival! We are proud to host this week full of community events that celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit of the Sequim pioneers. This ambitious group had the foresight and determination to build the irrigation ditches that turned the arid Sequim-Dungeness Valley into fertile agricultural lands, allowing the area to prosper as a center for commerce and culture. This year’s festival theme “Mountains to Sea, A Pristine Place to Be” exemplifies the natural beauty that surrounds our small, friendly city. People visit here from all over the world and see Sequim with fresh eyes. They remind us that we live in one of the most beautiful places on the earth and that we have a commitment to protect what makes Sequim special. We are fortunate to be surrounded by pristine beauty and by the energy and commitment of the community to keep this celebration going for 119 years. The Sequim Irrigation Festival is the longest continuous running festival in the state of Washington. I would like to give a big thank you to the Festival Committee and the community for all of their hard work putting together this special week. Now it’s time to enjoy all the events that the festival has to offer!

Irrigation Festival 2014

6 • Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Irrigation Dignitaries and Royalty As spring rolls in, the rushing waters of irrigation and Washington’s oldest festival aren’t too far away. Sequim’s 119th Irrigation Festival begins May 2-11, with one of its traditions honoring Sequim’s long-time and cherished residents ready to go. The Sequim Pioneer Association’s board announced last fall the 2014 Irrigation Festival Grand Pioneers — Jack Stevens and Dorothy Daniels Ludke — and Honorary Pioneers — Glenn Greathouse and Mabel Heine Sorensen. Bud Knapp, president of the association, said the four will be honored at the annual Pioneer Dinner, ride in the the Grand Parade and will attend several other festival events including the Sequim High School’s Operetta and Festival Kick-off dinner. Aside from Stevens, this will be three of the participants’ first time riding in a parade. To be honored as a pioneer, you must be born and raised in Sequim to become a grand pioneer, or you must have lived in Sequim for at least 40 years to be an honorary pioneer. The pioneer honors began at the association’s first luncheon, then called the Old Timer’s Club, in 1949.

Grand Marshals Gary and Janice Smith


Gary Smith was born in Sequim, son of Arvie and Dottie Smith. Gary’s family came from Alabama and Seattle. Janice, his wife, was born in Port Angeles, daughter of Fred and Katie Schmuck. Janice’s father was also born in Sequim. Her mother was born in Iowa. Jan and Gary both attended University of Puget Sound; Gary graduated with a chemistry degree, and then worked at Rayonier Mill for five years. In 1970 the opportunity came to farm when Janice’s father wanted to retire. Janice would be the third generation on Maple View Farm at Washington Harbor in Sequim, following her father, Fred, and her grandfather, Ernest Schmuck who emigrated from Germany at the age of 20, and later started Maple View Farm in 1933. Gary has served for 35 years representing the irrigators in local water issues. He has been a director on the Clallam Co-op Board for 36 years and served as board director on NW Farm Credit Services Bank for 14 years and four of those years as chairman. Although the farm has been transferred to his sons, Troy and Ben, he still works on the 400 cow dairy and crop operation. Janice has enjoyed farm life and raising four children, three who are living close by and one son, Anthony, who is a Navy pilot. She is proud of her nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Janice spends her time doing the bookkeeping for the farm with the help of daughter, Wendy, also who is a nurse at OMC. Janice supports helping women with their education through her membership of 49 years in her P.E.O. Chapter where she is currently president. Both Gary and Janice joined Trinity United Methodist Church when they were teenagers, they were married there in 1960 and still are active. Together Gary and Janice, when they are not driving tractors or chasing cows, enjoy short trips on their sailboat, traveling and tinkering with antique cars. But the highlights for them are working and playing with their family. On the Irrigation Festival: “It has always held importance. First hearing stories of our parents involvement of playing in festival baseball competitions, festival picnics, airplane rides and going to the BIG PARADE. For Gary it is memories of showing his 4-H and FFA animals at the Sequim High School grounds. For Janice it was performing the Maypole Dance and earning 25 cents for sweeping out her Dad’s (Fred Schmuck) school bus for the carnival ride on the Octopus. It was a big deal to be in two parades, Sequim and Port Townsend, as part of the 1959 Festival Royalty with Kaye (Thompson) Strong and Hazel (Messenger) Lowe. We are very proud to be again a part of our Irrigation Festival.”


Jack Stevens, Grand Pioneer

Stevens, 80, is a retired scientist and professor from the UCLA School of Medicine. He is married to Nancy with whom he has two children and five grandchildren. He was born and raised in Sequim until he went off to college but returned 17 years ago. “It’s nice to get away from the huge city (Los Angeles) and come back to a simpler living,” he said. Stevens said he still thinks of the Irrigation Festival as a “cool thing.” “I remember being in the Kids Parade leading a rooster with a leash. I won 25 cents,” he said.

Dorothy Daniels Ludke, Grand Pioneer

Ludke, 83, is a retired cafeteria cook from Helen Haller Elementary. She loved the children but particularly loves her own three along with her 10 grandchildren and four greatgrandsons. She was married to her husband Gayhard Ludke until his death in 1985. Her family has rich roots in Sequim, she said, including her great-grandfather John Bell who donated the property that helped start the City of Sequim. She loves the Irrigation Festival and thinks of it’s a wonderful experience for everyone. Her Aunt Lilly was even a grand pioneer. “I even watch for the water every year to come back down (the irrigation ditches),” she said. When asked why she’s stayed in Sequim her whole life, Ludke said, “It is my home. Sequim has so many of my childhood friends. It’s a wonderful place to live.”

teacher and football coach along with a few other subjects. “In those days, we taught whatever they needed,” he said. One claim to fame he remembers was coaching the junior high school football teams that went 10 years without a loss. As for his honor as a pioneer, Greathouse thinks it’s great. “I appreciate people nominating me,” he said. “I’ve tried to be a good community member.”

Mabel Sorensen, Honorary Pioneer

Glenn Greathouse, Honorary Pioneer

Greathouse, 82, moved to Sequim in 1955. “I came to Sequim because I like to fish and hunt but I got too busy to fish and hunt,” he said. “But I stayed. It’s a great place to raise a family.” Greathouse and his wife Jacquelyn, who died in 2010, have three children, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He grew up in Arlington and went to Western Washington University before teaching for two weeks at Bellingham High School. He then taught for 30 years in Sequim Middle and High Schools as a shop

Sorensen, 84, said she really hasn’t stopped working in her life. Her current project is working on her mother’s (Mabel Heine) home off Vautier Road. She’s married to Donald Sorensen and they have four children, five grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She moved to Sequim around age 5 but moved around a lot because her father Charles Heine was a logger. “He was the real pioneer,” she said. “He logged in Blyn and all over. I went to school a lot of places. We went where he went.” Sorensen fondly remembers the Maypole dances of the Irrigation Festival. “They were so fun,” she said. “It was pretty and I remember we got out of school to practice.” Every year, her family makes a tradition out of the festival parking at Creamery Square to sit in chairs in the back of trucks, eat snacks and watch the parade.

Irrigation Festival 2014

8 • Wednesday, April 23, 2014

The First Irrigation Festival

Bringing irrigation from the Dungeness River to the brown and parched prairie began as a dream of four pioneer settlers who were visionaries of their time. D.R. Callen had moved to Sequim from an irrigated area in Colorado and he convinced James R. Grant, H. Hucksford and Captain Thomas Jones that “water was wealth.” Together they set out to persuade their neighbors to go along with the idea. The skeptics called them “crazy” and said that water could not be made to run uphill; but there were those who believed. On July 20, 1895, a group of about 20 people held the first meeting of the Prairie Ditch. Incorporation papers were signed November 18, 1895, and the hardy pioneers worked all winter long building the ditch and flume. Money was scarce and the surveyor was paid partly in potatoes. Everyone gave what they could and the women cooked for the workers. Even the children helped by carrying water, running errands and tromping clay into the gravel. Finally, the following spring it was time for the “big day.” On May 1, 1896, the residents of the 1947 Irrigation Festival Parade. Dungeness Valley and surrounding communities came by Photos courtesy of Sequim Dungeness Museum and Arts Center wagon, on horseback and on foot to witness the opening of the headgate for the first time. Edgar B. Wicklander in “The Grants of Sequim Prairie,” gives a detailed account of that first celebration: (synopsis) “The day dawned fair and warm for May. The Grants arrived at the picnic grounds while the dew was still on the grass. Other families arrived about the same time, driving their wagons from the nearby Sequim prairie settlement. Those from some close farms walked the dry roads. Later in the morning groups arrived from Port Angeles. “The Bicycle Club of Port Townsend chartered a tug boat for the trip to Port Williams. They docked at 11 a.m. and some rode their bicycles to Sequim while others loaded their vehicles into wagons. The shining cycles amazed the young people of Sequim, but the dress of the ‘city folk’ was of interest to everyone. The men dressed in turtle neck sweaters, knickers and caps and the ladies wore ‘very daring’ short skirts, almost up to their shoe tops. Their outfits were completed with shirtwaists, jackets and perky hats and the Sequim farm kids thought they all looked rather funny. Long wooden tables had been set up and covered with hams, roasts of lamb and pork, salads, breads and chicken cooked every way possible. Each family had brought enough food for themselves and one or two other families, and no one went away hungry. “At the appointed time a group of men who had built the ditch went up to the upper end to turn the waters of the river into the new flume. As usual things did not go according to plan. When the headgate was raised the water refused to turn. Undaunted, the men located a wagon load of clay and picked up a wagon full of kids. They dumped the clay at the head of the flume in the gravel and told the kids to jump in. The kids got in to the river’s edge in their bare feet and tromped the clay into the gravel until the water flowed over it into the flume. It wound its way, the muddy water slowly following the flume, then into the dusty prepared big ditch, and finally all the way to the furrow, right into the picnic area. The skeptics who had said that water couldn’t run uphill were at last convinced.”

Also named to the court are Princess Judi Villella, daughter of Casey Thrush, and sponsored by Bekkevar Trucking & Logging; and Princess Kristina Holtrop, daughter of Joe and Karen Holtrop, sponsored by Nourish. The quartet were selected from five candidates vying for the queen’s crown at the 37th Sequim Irrigation Festival’s court on March 1. Holtrop and Villella are Sequim natives. Tapia was born in Santa Monica, Calif., and moved to Sequim at age 2. Ditlefsen moved here about nine years ago from Federal Way. They’ll appear in 14 parades including Sequim Irrigation Festival’s Grand Parade and the queen will receive a $1,000 scholarship and the three princesses will receive $750 each. Below is a brief interview with each candidate.

Katey Tapia

Best memory/first memory of Sequim? I live with my grandparents and mom and we used to have a horse, and I remember an elk herd came through one day. I thought it was a giant horse. Coming from California you don’t see animals like that. I thought Sequim was a magical place. • Why do you want to be Irrigation Festival royalty? I think this would be a great opportunity for me to show that you don’t have to be perfect to do this. I have a birthmark and I want to give the idea it’s not a deformity because maybe there’s a girl in the parade watching with something like that of her own. • By doing this, what do you want people to learn about you? Even if I hadn’t made it on the court, I’ve had an amazing experience learning from Lynn and Whitley (Sakas). I tried my best. I love dresses and crowns. I want people to know this is a blast. • Best part of the Irrigation Festival? I used to be in Sunshine Generation (a children’s dance group) every year in a float. I remember my mom following the float all the way. She is my No. 1 fan. If I forgot a step, she’d do a thumbs up. My mom was that mom.

Kristina Holtrop

Queen Katey Tapia

Best memory/first memory of Sequim? I remember recently walking through Carrie Blake Park with my dad for Lavender Weekend. I loved walking around the booths, taking my time and seeing everything. Some people have a bad impression of our festivals, but one of the reasons I like Sequim is the festivals. • Why do you want to be Irrigation Festival royalty? I think it will be an amazing experience. It could show me wonderful opportunities and take me new places in the area. It’s always good to know about the place I grew up. • By doing this, what do you want people to learn about you? I want to refine my social skills. I’ve been somewhat shy and I’ve been trying to breakout of my shell for a while. And hopefully by doing this I can keep continuing to do that. • Best part of the Irrigation Festival? I’ve been in the parade since I can remember with Sunshine Generation and the marching bands. Two years ago I went through the parade with the band and had to change out of the elaborate uniform and it is elaborate. Then I drove back to the beginning with a friend and got into a dress and heels for the “The Music Man” operetta float and when through it again.

Irrigation Festival Royalty 2014

Princess Kristina Holtrop

Judi Villella

• Best memory/first memory of Sequim? I was born and raised here and I remember going to Sequim Early Learning Center (preschool) and running around on the playground for hours having fun and chasing kids I know to this day. • Why do you want to be Irrigation Festival royalty? It’s always been a dream of mine. I remember going to the pageant with my grandma and I told her I wanted to wear a dress and crown when I was old enough. I asked her to remind me when I was that age and before the packets came out she asked me if I wanted to still do it and I said Yes! • By doing this, what do you want people to learn about you? I want to be remembered as a positive role model and have a positive influence on my peers. I want to show Sequim that there are still good teens out there. • Best part of the Irrigation Festival? I’ve been in the parade every year for years and sometimes several times in a day. I like meeting up with my friends at the carnival and then going to the logging show and watching the

Princess Judi Villella fireworks. I love walking the streets of Sequim during the festival. Going from event to event is nice.

Kaylee Ditlefsen

• Best memory/first memory of Sequim? My grandparents used lived up here before we did and we came up for the festivals. One of my favorite memories was going to the festivals but I remember eating at the Oak Table Cafe and one day I swore I’d work there and I did. • Why do you want to be Irrigation Festival royalty? I really enjoy being involved with fun things. This always sounded fun to me and it sounded like it’s right up my alley. I also get to work with young kids and I really like Sequim and the chance to represent it. • By doing this, what do you want people to learn about you?

Princess Kaylee Ditlefsen I think I have a lot of different sides to me. This is more the get dolled up side, but I have my swimming side and wrestling side. I expect this to help me open up as I go into the real world by meeting new people and network. • Best part of the Irrigation Festival? At the parade, I was in third grade, I was running up and down the street and I saw a vendor selling bouncy balls with water in them. I bounced it once and it popped everywhere.
