MARYSVILLE MAYOR JON NEHRING

Welcome to the Strawberry Festival Dear Neighbors and Visitors: For several days in mid-June, Marysville is the place to be. The 87th Annual Marysville Strawberry Festival is a real community celebration and this year is no exception. Now in its 87th year, the Marysville Strawberry Festival has evolved through several generations. Created to celebrate Marysville’s rich agricultural heritage and particularly those delicious strawberries (our community’s most-famous crop), the Strawberry Festival is one of the longest ongoing and most popular festivals in the state. Thousands of locals and visitors from

throughout the region come to Marysville to kick off the summer vacation season with family friendly events that culminate in the grand finale, Saturday’s Grand Parade. As mayor and a long-time resident, I love Marysville year-round. But June is when we - even more than usual – open our arms in welcome for visitors to experience our community’s unique combination of modern amenities and old-fashioned charm and hospitality. I am delighted to welcome you to the Marysville Strawberry Festival. Whether you’ve lived here for years or you’re visiting for the first time, I wish you

sunshine, strawberry shortcake and a few extra helpings of laughter. JON NEHRING Marysville Mayor

KING OF THE ROYALTY COURT NATHAN WELLER

Celebrating what Marysville has to offer I am a junior attending Marysville Getchell High School, and I have the privilege of being king of the Marysville Strawberry Festival royalty court. I appreciate the opportunity to represent and serve my Marysville community this year. The value of a community event cannot be overstated. A time when a community has the opportunity to gather and celebrate together is an incredible experience. I have always jumped at the opportunities to attend many of the events featured in the Strawberry Festival. Since I moved to Marysville when I was 4, I have always loved what it has to offer, and I hope you will, too. Marysville is a lovely city with wonderful residents and a great atmosphere. The Strawberry Festival is a time to celebrate Marysville for everything 6

it is, everything it has, and everything we can make it. I write to you with an important message: Be of good cheer. At times our lives, situations or outlook appear grim or less than ideal. I believe that our perspectives on life will improve as we approach hardships with a positive attitude, always looking forward to the great things that the future holds. I encourage everybody to entertain good thoughts and a positive attitude because there is always something to appreciate in our lives. It is with great excitement that I invite you to yet another festival celebrating Marysville, its families, its businesses, its schools and everything else that makes Marysville the city it is. On behalf of the

city, the festival royal court, schools and businesses welcome to Marysville. NATHAN WELLER Marysville Strawberry Festival King of the Royalty Court

Marysville Strawberry Festival | JUNE 2018


MEET THE STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL ROYAL COURT

King Nathan, Princesses Katelynn and Kaitlyn excited for the festival

Katelynn Melohusky, Nathan Weller and Kaitlyn Norris reign over this year’s Marysville Strawberry Festival.

N

athan Weller has been in the Marysville Strawberry Festival Parade before – just not as king.

Weller, a junior at Marysville Getchell High School, has marched in the parade as a band member since the sixth grade. But this year he will instead stand tall on the Maryfest float. He was named king of this summer’s royalty. Joining him are two princesses from Marysville-Pilchuck High School. They are senior Katelynn Melohusky and junior Kaitlyn Norris.

Young University and major in music education. Weller said he is enjoying representing Marysville in different parades. He likes meeting the royalty from other areas, but he also likes the court he is on as he’s known both princesses for some time. “I’ve liked meeting new people,” he said. He’s also liked visiting locales he’s never seen before – such as Wenatchee and Leavenworth. Melohusky decided to run because a friend told her how fun it was.

Members of the court accompany the float and serve as ambassadors representing Marysville at many parades and festivals throughout the Northwest. They also make appearances at local events, activities, retirement homes and other venues.

“I can give back to the community as well,” she said.

Weller decided to get involved this year because of the scholarship opportunity. By winning the pageant he gets $5,000 from Maryfest, while Melohusky and Norris get $3,500 each. He plans to attend Brigham

She said she’s looking forward to her hometown festival parade, and also going to Canada. Melohusky plans to attend the University of Washington.

They have already been in a few parades and so far she likes watching the little kids as she performs the dance on the float.

Like Weller, Norris has been in parades

JUNE 2018 | Marysville Strawberry Festival

before as a member of the marching band. She said being on the royalty already has helped her come out of her shell. “I was not too involved or vocal,” she said. “I didn’t interact much. I wanted to get into the community.” Norris said the trio has been kept very busy. Not only are they going to parades, they also are part of ribbon cuttings at businesses and other events. They also have been involved in photo shoots and interviews. “I saw the mayor three times in one week,” she said. On the trip to Wenatchee for the Apple Blossom Festival, they left at 4:30 a.m. and didn’t get back until late. “I loved it, but it was absolutely insane,” she said. “For hours and hours we had to be positive and up.” She’s also enjoyed meeting the people. “We interact with people of all ages and walks of life,” Norris said. • 7


MEET THE JUNIOR ROYALTY

Abigail Lewis, Ziri Morales and Emmah Butler make up the Marysville Strawberry Festival junior royalty for 2018.

Abigail, Ziri and Emmah enjoying life as princesses

T

he Junior Royalty princesses are seventh-graders Emmah Butler and Abigail Lewis, both of whom attend 10th Street Middle School, and Ziri Morales from Marysville Middle School. Since they hadn’t been in any parades yet, they said their favorite part of the experience so far was “shopping.” They got to go to the Tulalip outlet mall. “They asked if we liked it, then we got it,” Emmah said. She said she decided to try out for the royalty because her library teacher told her 8

how fun it would be.

“It’s boosted my confidence,” she said.

Ziri tried out because she had two sisters who previously were part of it.

Abigail decided to run because a good friend had just been on the royalty and really liked it.

“There’s too little parades,” she said of the six they take part in. “We need more.” Ziri said she likes that she knows both of the other princesses from playing soccer and their grade school years. “If they were strangers it wouldn’t be as fun,” she said. She said being on the junior royalty already has helped her.

She said she always wanted to be on the royalty because she remembers being happy when she was around the princesses when she was little. All three said they can’t wait to be in a parade. They don’t get to ride on the float like the Senior Royalty, but they do get to ride in a vehicle. “It’s exciting,” Zita said. •

THE 87TH MARYSVILLE STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL

Changes coming to this year’s festival With a transition in leadership with Maryfest, the volunteer organization that puts on the Marysville Strawberry Festival each year, will come a change in events. New will be a Creative Kids Art Celebration at Totem Middle School June 16. Kids will be able to do hands-on art. And they will be able to bring all kinds of art made previously that will be judged. There also is a stage so kids can do performance art, such as dancing or playing an instrument. “Organizers felt we needed something to show off the talented artists we have in Marysville,” said Doug Buell, Maryfest communications director. While not new, two traditional events that didn’t happen because of a lack of volunteers last year will return. Once again, the Kids Day Party in the

There will be some events missing from this year’s festival.

Park at Asbery Field will kick off the festival June 9. “It’s bigger than ever,” Buell said.

Five bouncy houses will be inflated on the football field, along with a mechanical bull. Longtime favorites The Reptile Man and Bubble Man will return, along with the Balloon Man. There also will be kids music from the Imagination Band. Also returning is the Fashion Show Luncheon June 12, and it is going back to

There will be no fireworks show after the grand parade. Maryfest did that to save money and because the city had been planning a July 4th fireworks show, although that did not pan out. They didn’t want two fireworks shows so close together, Buell said. Also missing is a car show. Maryfest did not like the demands the group that ran it last year had. They did find a group to run one next year, but it did not think it had enough time to put on a quality show this summer. •

THE 2018 MARYFEST BOARD WELCOMES YOU

G

iiving thousands of visitors an exciting and memorable Marysville Strawberry Festival and Twilight Grand Parade each year is a monumental – but rewarding - task. A new Maryfest Board of Directors, including many familiar faces from within the community, and a devoted core of festival volunteers alongside them have worked year-round to bring the jam to Marysville with a fresh running start, and ensure that the 87th annual festival leaves residents and visitors with a fair to remember. The diverse group includes several community and business leaders who also have prior volunteer experience serving on the board. Here is the 15-member board for 2018: Jim Brennick, Leslie Buell, Jodi Condyles, Autumn Calkins, Amy Edwards, Ed Giesler, Jennifer Hansen, Jodi Hiatt, Tom King, Mary Kirkland, Lynne Kramer, Veronica Love, Art Maldonado, Chris Nation and

Darrell Wigdahl. Officers are Hiatt, president; Nation, vice president; Love, treasurer; Kirkland, secretary; and Darrell Wigdahl, president-elect. The all-volunteer group donates time between work and family needs to carry out the festival and its various activities and events. While the festival is the pinnacle of a year’s worth of planning, the group’s involvement doesn’t start and end there. Marysville is a member of the Northwest Festival Hosting Association, an organization composed of several festivals around the Northwest. Marysville has been a member since 2001, working with other festivals under an arrangement that in simplest terms says that if you bring your float and delegation to our parade, Marysville will bring theirs to yours. The schedule includes the Tacoma Daffodil

Festival in April, Apple Blossom Festival in Wenatchee, Spokane Lilac Festival and Hyack (New Westminster, B.C.) Festival in May, Portland Rose Festival in June, Capital Lakefair in Olympia and Seattle SeaFair, Penticton (B.C.) Peach Festival in July, and Autumn Leaf Festival in Leavenworth and Issaquah Salmon Days in September. “The partnership between member cities lifts all boats, making sure that our respective parades have all the dazzling floats and added pageantry that make them special,” Hiatt said. “Plus, getting to know other involved, like-minded people in other communities at the hosting receptions is a fun and valuable experience for the relationships you build, and friendships you make.” Hosting packages are offered at each community’s festival that generally include accommodation, receptions, a formal or semi-formal dinner, entertainment and a farewell breakfast Sunday morning. •

A Kung Fu 4 Kids demonstration, skit from Red Curtain Theatre Foundation kid actors and an ROTC routine are planned, as well as coloring contests and giveaways and activities planned by organizations and businesses.

TALENT SHOW

Talent show draws cream of the strawberry crop

A

t the Strawberry Festival talent show, there are no empty seats in the front row.

Contestants auditioned in early May, and the cream of the crop will perform at the talent show at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 14 in the Marysville-Pilchuck High School Auditorium, 5611 108th St. NE “The talent just gets better and better each year,” organizer Marcy Giesler said. All types of performers participate including singers, musicians, dancers, bands, magicians and more. Talent comes from all over the Northwest. “A lot of of it is new talent, playing original songs with people singing, performers on guitar, banjo, piano, and dance numbers featuring original choreography,” Giesler said. “We even have kid-friendly comedy this year. First-place winners in various categories receive a trophy. The overall winner receives a gift basket and gets to ride in the Grand Parade Saturday, June 16. Auditions hinted at an eclectic mix of outstanding dancers and dance squads, and accomplished musicians. The Saltgrass Dirt Band that performed as a trio last year are returning with their full five-person act. Another exciting addition is a Seattle group of 12 girls and 10 boys that will perform Bollywood-style dance. “We’re going to have another great year, and I’m looking forward to all the new talent we have coming in,” Giesler said. Doors open at 5:30, but the show starts an hour later. Admission is $5 for tickets purchased in advance, and $7 at the door. To get your tickets in advance, contact coordinator Marcy Giesler at 360-653-6584. Children under 7 are free. •

Rides produce plenty of thrills and entertainment, including a ferris wheel, scrambler, octopus ride and head-spinning Starship 2000. “The carnival offers a good mix of rides,” King said. “Some are rides for parents and their children to get onboard together.” The carnival also features a colorful midway with several games of skill and chance that will put festival-goers’ knack for prize-winning to the test. Other arcade games like the rubber ducks swimming in the pond game are just fun, requiring no skill at all to get a prize. In addition to amusement rides, carnival food such as corn dogs, funnel cakes and ice drinks are also available for purchase. •

CREATIVE KIDS

Creative Kids Art Celebration brings youth art, music to festival

M

arysville and Tulalip have some budding young artists and performers, and their works and talents will be on display at the first-ever Creative Kids Performing & Visual Arts Show at the Strawberry Festival. The fun takes place from noon-5 p.m. Saturday, June 16, in Totem Middle School’s Cafe, 1605 7th St. Admission is free. The event features a juried art show, student musical and dance performances, and hands-on kids art activities tables. Art show participation is open to students in grades 1st through 12th. The theme for artwork is “In harmony.” Organizers Kristin Michal and Karen Davis said the idea grew out of conversations at the 10th Street School where their children attend. Michal said the show is focused on what kids are doing in the community in the arts. “We have all these great resources and art like at 10th Street’s art festival and Tulalip Kids Art Festival, and we don’t always know if people get a chance to see all this talent and positive stuff,” Michal said. “This art festival is an opportunity for our kids to show what they’re doing, and share it with other kids and adults in the community,” she said. Registration forms are available on the festival website at http://www.maryfest.org. Art categories include 2-D and 3-D art, photography and digital art. •

SHORTCAKE EATING CONTEST

Strawberry shortcake contest: jam in all you can, and bring out the face wipes

I

f you’ve got a knack for pigging out at the Marysville festival, start with dessert first and pit your appetite against others in the Strawberry Shortcake Eating Contest.

Several competitive categories are available when the fun starts at 1 p.m. June 16 at Asbery Field. Challenge festival royalty to kick off the competition, with age categories to follow: 5-7, 8-10, 11-13 and 14-17 year old, continuing at 2:30 p.m. open to adults, and sponsored challenges at 3 p.m. to declare the last person standing the overall champion. “We invite family and friends to take part in this fun tradition at the Strawberry Festival,” said Amy Edwards, Maryfest board member and coordinator of the competition. “It’s almost as fun to watch the competitors as it is to sit down, join in and get your face in the bowl. Some tips before you dig in: • Don’t compete on an empty stomach – you should actually eat something ahead of time so your tummy is prepared for lipsmacking goodness.

• Drink water – it will help expand your stomach. • Eat at your own pace, and hope that’s enough to give you the win in your category. Cost to enter is $3 for children up to age 12, and $5 for teens and adults. Sign up in advance online at http://www.maryfest.org. •

THE MARKET

The Market is the central meeting place

I

f you're looking for live music, a beer and wine garden, gift items for dad's day and culinary carnival favorites that will have you shaking like jam after every delicious bite, there's only one place to go during Strawberry Festival – the Market in the Park at Asbery Field. The Market is the central meeting place of the weekend's festival activities, where fair-goers can browse 120 food vendors, crafts and commercial booths for hand-crafted items for the home, Market coordinator Tom King said. The market at 4th Street and Alder Avenue will run from 2-9 p.m. Friday, June 15, 10 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 16 (food vendors open until 9 p.m.) and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, June 18. “Come spend the day, grab a bit to eat, listen to some great music and find just the right gift or goodies in time for Father's Day,” King said. This year, the band entertainment stage has been relocated to the northeast corner of Asbery Field so performers can play and be heard not only by fair-goers along food row and among the market aisles, but by those in the Kiwanis beer and wine garden on 7th Street as well.

The music performance lineup is set. In keeping with the festival them, the music’s going to be jammin’. Friday opens with mixed rock from Petty Differences followed by the blues sounds of Jenny & the Blue Moon Boys. Rock and roll rules Saturday featuring The “A” Band and Aardvarks Utd., with country music in the middle from Patrick McHenry & the Chinooks. Pennies for Puppies will be on site from 1-5 p.m. to raise funds for K-9 dogs. Voice of the Village Sunday's performances, closing with rock from band No Rules. Kids can’t sit still at the market and they need a little activity to burn off the fair food. Count on the return of annual market favorites like the rock climbing wall, pony rides, free trampoline jumps and – fingers crossed – mini-train rides. This year brings the ultimate thrill to Asbery: a Euro Bungy Trampoline ride where fair-goers can jump to new heights on a huge trampoline while attached to a harness and bungy cords. More than two dozen food vendors will be ready with mouthwatering eats including hand-dipped hot dogs, corn dogs, hamburgers, barbecue dishes (some sauces with hint of strawberry, maybe?), quesadillas, mouth-watering pulled pork,

Marysville Strawberry Festival | JUNE 2018


THE MARKET teriyaki and curry favorties, gyros and other grilled Greek food, roasted corn and potatoes cut all sorts of ways. If carnival sweet treats and cool drinks are more to your liking, there will be shave ice, ice cream, frozen yogurt, Italian ice, lemonades, steamy crepes, cotton candy, fried bananas with fixings, kettle corn and elephant ears. Most importantly, save room for Strawberry shortcake, as always provided by Marysville's Masonic Temple at their red-painted stand. For adults, check out the Kiwanis Beer and Wine Garden. Hours are Friday 5-10 p.m., Saturday noon-9 p.m. and Sunday noon-5 p.m. Bring in your food purchased from nearby festival vendors if the table-side popcorn and peanuts supplied by Kiwanis don't count as a meal. The Marysville Community Food Bank will conduct a food drive during the three-day market, so bring a non-perishable food item and help those less fortunate. King said the festival went to extra effort to attract more crafters to the market this year, and the results won't disappoint. Browsers will see plenty of unique jewelry and accessories, decorative handcrafted and laser-designed wood signs, dream catchers, chainsaw art, hand-crafted soaps and bath products, and much more. Tie dye clothing, original t-shirts and hats are among the many clothing items available, while one graphics vendor plans to

sell special festival shirts which, among them, include a jar of strawberry jam saying “That's my jam” and another that reads “I'm only here for the strawberries.” •

BEER GARDEN

I

At Kiwanis Strawberry Festival beer garden, the suds will pour

f you need a break from all the festival hoopla, stop by and enjoy a frothy round of suds with friends in the Marysville Kiwanis Club Beer Garden at the Strawberry Festival’s Market in the Park at Asbery Field. While you’re at it, enjoy a little live music with your beer, as this year for the first time the market’s entertainment stage has been relocated to the northeast corner of Asbery Field and closer to the beer garden so festival-goers can kick back and enjoy the tunes. Beers on tap will include Bud, Bud Light, an IPA and Wheat Ale, with additional premium beers to be announced. The beer garden is bringing back the popular strawberry-flavored cream ale brewed by Marysville’s own Whitewall Brewery, Kiwanis member Dave Voigt said. “The ale is a hit with beer garden visitors, with its smooth hints of strawberry flavor,” Voigt said. Catering to the vineyard crowd, the beer garden will also offer wine (two reds and two whites from bottles) from Jones of WA and San Juan Vineyards. A variety of ‘Ritas will also be available. Prices are $5 each for all the drinks.

Free popcorn and peanuts will be available. If you’ve got food purchased in the market, you can bring it with you into the beer garden. Proceeds from beer garden sales are used by Kiwanis to support programs and services for youth in the community. Beer garden hours are Friday 5-10 p.m., Saturday noon-9 p.m. and Sunday noon-5 p.m. •

KIDDIES PARADE

Festival puts the ‘kid’ in Kiddies Parade

T

he Marysville Strawberry Festival celebrates its community’s kids so much they deserve their own parade.

The Kiddies Parade is the venue that gives them an opportunity to shine. The parade will happen on 7th Street NE at Totem Middle School.

To love someone

Children join in from around the area to dress in costume, convert wagons into colorful floats and decorate their bikes with flowers, while dancers and gymnastics teams bring the movement of color to the parade. “It’s important for kids to be able to take part in the festival at an event that is just for them,” said Michelle Sato, volunteer parade coordinator. “It’s really fun to see their imagination come through in their costumes and parade flair.” The parade has enjoyed frequent involvement from groups such as Rising Stars Gymnastics, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. The pets category has drawn costumed dogs and miniature ponies (owners are responsible to clean up after their animals). Some participating families spend months putting together their wagon-sized floats pegged to the festival’s theme. “It’s a nice way for kids to bond with their family,” Sato said. Registration starts at 5 p.m., with judging tentatively at 5:30 p.m., followed by the parade at about 6 p.m. The parade is open to children age 12 and younger. After that parade, festival royalty will meet with participants. They will give out awards in the five parade categories: Wheels, Costumes, Pets, Groups and Floats. No motorized vehicles are allowed. The overall winner of the Kiddies Parades qualifies to participate in the Grand Parade later that evening, unless the parents think it is past their pint-sized moppets’ bedtime. “This year, we hope we can blow our numbers out of the water,” she said. Entrants can apply online at http://www.maryfest.org, but walkups at the last minute are OK, too. •

MARYSVILLE FLOAT

Volunteers build Strawberry Festival float for another busy parade season

I

n a garage bay in a closed-down auto repair shop near Ebey Waterfront Park, volunteers strip down a guitar bodyshaped structure that is actually the shell of what is this year’s Marysville Strawberry Festival float. It started as not much to look at, but once Maryfest volunteers began decorating it with an array of colorful deck materials, fabrics, figures and scenes befitting the 2018 theme “Jam in Marysville,” the transformation would become one that would turn heads at parades around the region. “Building the float it is a lot of hard work, said Jodi Hiatt, president of the Maryfest volunteer organization that hosts the festival. Hiatt said the float can take up to 200 hours and six weeks to build with a half dozen volunteers. “It’s not just the physical labor involved with building it either; we have to start building it in our minds first.” This year’s float is musical, featuring a four-piece strawberry jam band of leggy berries on horns and drums, while the voice of “Jammer” leads parade-watchers to do the Strawberry Jam Dance. “Jammer, Jammer, he’s our man” has help from the festival senior royalty on deck and Maryfest volunteers doing the dance, too. The song and dance are thanks to a group on the other side of the country, the Florida Strawberry Growers Association. This year, the city permitted festival organizers to build and store the float in the city-owned former Baxter Auto Repair building at 1408 1st St. “This is a great, secure spot to work,” said Tom King, a festival officer and city council member. He and fellow Maryfest board member Ed Giesler spent hours making sure the float’s in-board generator was accessible for servicing and checked batteries, motors and other mechanical and dashboard components to make sure everything was ready before decorating.

Festival sponsor Les Schwab in Marysville donated new tires for the floats, replaced bearings, fixed a troublesome fuel gauge and made sure other driving-related fixtures were in working order. A kickoff work party in February and subsequent work parties drew a handful of volunteers. “This is my first float,” said Maryfest board member Jodi Condyles, who was helped by her college-age son, Peter. They pulled up the red carpet on the float, unscrewed all the doors and hinges, and pulled off other materials left over from last year’s float. Did she think she could tear down and rebuild a parade float? “Why not?” she said. She enjoyed the work. “We’re all helping out for different reasons, but we all care about the festival and the community,” she said. Hiatt said the work is worth it. “It’s an exciting moment, and something we can all be proud of when we’re out promoting not only the festival, but the Marysville community as well.” Marysville’s float wins awards quite often. It garnered the Community Sweepstakes Award at the Apple Blossom Festival in Wenatchee last month, for example. •

GRAND PARADE

Twilight Grand Parade packs the streets

A

fter a jam-packed week of activities celebrating all things strawberry in the city that bears the nickname, “The Strawberry City,” nothing tops off the festival abetter than the dazzling sight and sounds of the Twlight Grand Parade. The 87th annual Strawberry Festival Grand Parade starts at 7:45 p.m. on Saturday, June 16. It will feature a flotilla of more than 100 colorful floats, marching bands, drum corps and bagpipers, drill teams, VIPs, local businesses, and senior center royalty interspersed with parade entries that present a slice of life in Marysville, Tulalip and the surrounding communities. Antique and

show-ready cars, pirates, cowboys and clowns usually make an appearance, adding to the merrymaking revelry. The festival draws upwards of 100,000 people to Marysville each year, with a sizable portion of community members and visitors lining the sidewalks along State Avenue for a front-row view of the menagerie of entries that follows. Floats from communities around the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia participate, and since it’s a parade that gradually gives over to night, the floats are usually lit up.

with the purchase of one drink. Only in the bar.

GRAND PARADE

The Marysville senior and junior royalty will ride atop the Marysville float, this year urging parade-goers to join them as they dance “The Strawberry Jam” to music with a few simple moves in sequence, which could loosely be described as a rolling flash mob. ast royalty also are expected at the parade. Other royalty rides on visiting floats. And, anointed kings and queens from local retirement centers - who take a backseat to no one will also be riding in the parade to the cheers of onlookers Bands usually include Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville Getchell

high schools, with seniors wearing their graduation robes to help out the underclassmen. Cheer squads often accompany the bands. Mayor Jon Nehring and Grand Marshal Marie Zackuse, chairwoman and leader of the Tulalip Tribes, will ride in style. Police and fire groups are normally involved, as are equestrian teams. Roving vendors will sell treats and other food on the streets, along with inflatable toys and other knicknacks. •

She has served on the board since 1990 and was elected chairwoman last year. She previously was the board secretary. She is involved in the Early Learning Advisory Council, established by the state Legislature. Accomplishments include signing an agreement that encourages WSSDA to develop a curriculum that includes tribal experiences, to work on narrowing the achievement gap, and to increase understanding of tribal history, culture and government. She also is a member of the Indian Education Committee. Marie and her husband, Gene, live in Tulalip. They have four children and 11 grandchildren.

Tulalip Tribes Chairwoman heads parade

Zackuse is the first elected chairwoman since the tribes’ first board was elected in 1936. Zackuse is working with her fellow board members to strengthen their sovereignty by defending their treaty rights, improving services to their membership, and focusing on the health and wellness of their community. Another effort she has made is to honor the women and their contributions to their community. To help with health and wellness, she and the tribe have joined with the Snohomish County Health Leadership Coalition’s LiveHealthy2020 initiative, which focuses on improving access and information to nutrition and exercise. •

Strawberry Festival Snapshots

The Marysville Strawberry Festival Grand Parade draws a large crowd each year, rain or shine. The city frowns on putting lawn chairs out the night before nowadays, but it’s OK to save a spot a few hours before the 7:45 p.m. start.

We’re proud to serve the Marysville community with personal, compassionate care, since 1904.

Floats come from near and far to participate in the Marysville Strawberry Festival Grand Parade. Above is the one sponsored by the Tulalip Resort Casino last summer. Below is the one from the Daffodil Festival, which has royalty from Puyallup and Tacoma and goes through Sumner and Orting, too.

Kids love being not only in the Kiddies Parade, like above, but also the grand parade, below. Last year, the pretty cart with the cute ponies was a crowd favorite. And in the adult parade, young gymnasts showed all kinds of flexibility to impress the crowd.
