Programs flourish across Mason County’s schools It’s a good time to be in school in Mason County. For many, the Shelton School District Construction Bond that is nearing completion may be the most noticeable example. $65M going into seven schools, some of which were in dire need of renovation, is an amazing accomplishment for our community. But when I say it’s a good time to be in school in Mason County, that is just one example. There is so much more. Hood Canal School District has some incredible programs and exceptional staff. Newly appointed Superintendent Nikki Cannon has leaped into the community with both feet. From attending local events to meeting people one on one, she has already made an impact and will continue to do so throughout her tenure. The district has also just been awarded Washington State Parks and Recreation funds as part of the No Child Left Inside grant. The grant will fund outdoor education and recreation to underserved youth and the district will use the money to fund experiential and adventure-based education as well as the Riparian Enhancement Programs offered to middle school students in the 2019-2020 school year. Olympic College recently announced that it is recruiting for a full-time Construction Trades Director to lead the planning, development, and launch of a new Construction Trades Program for Olympic College in Kitsap and Mason Counties. The initial work location will be in Shelton at the Olympic College Shelton campus. Hard hat-clad workers are declining for a multitude of reasons, including a decreased value being placed on trades, the aging baby boomer population, and the ensuring skills gap. In a community such as Mason County, where less than 18% of residents have a college degree, the construction trades can provide a viable, well-paying salary for newcomers to the workforce without having earned a fouryear degree. This program will be offered in addition to the two-year associate degree for the welding program, another non-traditional educational course the college offers. Shelton School District has taken great strides in the past few years. In concert with Mason General Hospital, Shelton High School rolled out its Health Sciences Academy over the past school year with great success – enrolling more than 300 students in its inaugural year. Why would Mason Cover Photo: The Chamber’s annual Expo & Bit of Mason County drew thousands to downtown for business showcase.

General participate in this? The simple answer is workforce development. There is a significant and growing shortage of health care workers which makes recruiting and retaining employees difficult. By improving the quality of education and developing future healthcare professionals, they are actively creating their workforce and a healthier community. As Shelton School District continues the trend toward academies, partnering with organizations such as Bates Technical College for their expertise in trades and manufacturing, they are considering additional academies that are in demand locally and statewide. The rollout of these will help build an environment where students are not only more engaged and have increased graduation rates, they will also possess valuable experience upon graduation. Recognizing the incredible need for workforce development and its impact on our community, the Chamber will take an active role in facilitating job shadowing, internships, in-class expert speakers, and guiding curriculum through participation in steering committees. Our businesses are eager to get their hands on the kids and help them begin learning skills that are conneted and to form strong work habits. If you are interested in participating at any level, please give me a call. There will be many opportunities to get plugged in. 215 W Railroad Avenue PO Box 2389, Shelton, WA 98584 (360) 426-2021 n (800) 576-2021 sheltonchamber.org

President’s Perspective nnn

Lisa Perry 2019 Chamber Board President Sierra Pacific Industries

Is it just me or does everyone feel like this summer is going far too quickly? It is unimaginable to me that we are discussing back to school issues but here we are. Some wonder why a business organization such as the Chamber would focus on schools. The easy answer is that our future employees and customers are being educated as we speak. How those schools view business and how they interact, especially with local businesses, will determine our future. As a former educator, I’ve been on both sides of the equation. What everyone realizes very quickly is that academia and business tend to speak different languages and almost operate on different planes. Most educators and administrators have spent their professional lives learning and honing their craft in schools, while business people — many of whom went to school or a training program — honed their craft outside that world.

I had the wonderful fortune to travel with Shelton High School teachers and administrators to Nashville to see the academy model of schools that we are currently trying to emulate here locally. By traveling together and spending every evening sharing what we had all learned in different sessions, it was clear that our goals are very similar. We all want students to have access to high quality education that prepares them for a successful life. Students need to be ready for college or other training programs, career, the military, or wherever their passion leads them. As a local employer, I want them to also realize that whether they stay in the area or leave for their next step, there are wonderful career opportunities back here if they choose to return. They can’t know that if they haven’t seen them! The Chamber will play a very important role in this process. We are committed to facilitating the communication between schools and employers, ensuring that

programs are preparing students for real-life, up-to-date careers. Schools will be reaching out to the community for job shadows, classroom presentations, tours, and other ideas to engage students in local businesses. The Chamber will continue to explore the opportunities. That said, don’t wait to be contacted; reach out to your school today if you have ideas. Get more involved in the Chamber and let us know that you’re interested in working on this project. Let’s help our youth find their passion and maybe even find it right here in our beautiful community!

OysterFest highlights local aquaculture, supports community efforts For locals OysterFest is a tradition. For visitors it’s a chance to indulge in the seafood dishes for which the Pacific Northwest is best known. On the first full weekend in October, Skookum Rotary will stage its 38th annual OysterFest, home of the West Coast Oyster Shucking Championships. It is also Washington State’s official seafood festival. On Friday evening, the three-year tradition of OysterFunk by Shelton Rotary Club takes place in the 21+ beer garden, catering to locals and OysterFest RVers alike. Saturday and Sunday hosts family-friendly opportunities all day with water quality exhibits, free entertainment, and live music throughout the weekend. For those looking for adult activities, dozens of Washington State Wineries and Pacific Northwest Microbreweries certainly know how to do their thing. Combine this with the food vendors offering unique delicacies and this a festival to which you’ll want to arrive to both hungry & thirsty! One cool thing about OysterFest that you may not know is that Skookum Rotary allows only nonprofit organizations serving Mason County to be a food vendor at OysterFest. By making this requirement, Skookum Rotary ensures that it is a fundraising event for other organizations as well. What a way to pay it forward! OysterFest is located on Sanderson Field, 1/2 mile north of Shelton, west of US Highway

Thank you Expo sponsors Premier sponsors

In 1976, the Washington State Legislature directed the Washington Association of Sheriffs & Police Chiefs (WASPC) to develop a set of operational standards and industry goals for Washington State law enforcement officials. In response, WASPC established a rigorous accreditation program for law enforcement agencies to become certified in industry best practices and standards. The accreditation process occurs in eight phases: Interest and Contract; File Maintenance; Self-Assessment; On-Site Assessment and Evaluation; Accreditation Commission Review; Executive Board Review; Award; and Re-Accreditation. The Shelton Police Department is working to achieve this coveted accreditation by the end of 2019. S E RV IC E Page 6 - BUSINESS MATTERS

Expo & Bite draws thousands to downtown, showcases county’s best On the third Friday of July, the Chamber’s Expo & Bite of Mason County once again transformed downtown with its street fair along Railroad Avenue. Thousands of residents and visitors turned out for the one-day event.

As always, the event offered residents and visitors a chance to check out local services, retailers, and restaurants in a fun, casual atmosphere. Vendors entertained and interacted by hosting games, offering giveaways, and drawing free raffles throughout the day; the restaurants prepared delectable bites of food for a great value.

From nearly 100 booth spaces and almost a dozen food vendors, the Chamber asked the community to vote for their favorites. Competition was intense and it was a tight race to take home the People’s Choice Awards. 2019 Best Booth went to Hood Canal Communications who celebrated 85 years in business with an 80’s themed booth featuring totally tubular tech throwbacks, photo fun, rad prizes, and lots of fun!

Tempting Eats and Treats received the Golden Fork award as they delighted the crowds with delicious finger steaks, gouda grillers, caprese crostini, raspberry swirl cheesecake, Irish cream brownies, and slush puppies.

Best Booth awarded to Hood Canal Communications.

SAVE THE DATE The Community Expo & Bite of Mason County on Friday, July 17, 2020! The day closed out with a special performance by The Varmints. Taking the stage in front of the clock tower, this local favorite energized the crowd with its classic rock, mixing in a few new songs from 4:00 - 6:30 PM. Special thanks to our Premier Sponsors Hood Canal Communications, Maple Glen

Senior Living, Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics, Our Community Credit Union, and Port of Shelton as well as our Media Sponsors, iFiberOne News Radio - KMAS, 96.9 KAYO, and Shelton-Mason County Journal. A nod also to Island Johnny who provided several portable toilet units, handwash stations, and a high-end mobile restroom trailer. The 2019 Community Expo & Bite of Mason County Street Fair would not have been as successful without their significant support.

Located on Hammersley Inlet, just minutes from the city center, the marina boasts 64 privately owned boat houses, 45 open slips, 180 feet of reciprocal & guest moorage and a public boat launch.

Chamber invests in community leaders Rural Development Initiative (RDI) offers a unique training to foster community leadership. RDI is based on the belief that vital rural communities develop from a broad base of knowledgeable, skilled, and motivated leaders. The leadership training consists of sessions that focus on developing the community leadership capacity of individuals. In 2018, the Chamber’s Board of Trustees elected to contribute funds to support a new RDI in Mason County, acknowledging that the projects are integral to moving the community forward. The Chamber matched those dollars, doubling the impact. This three-year initiative provides training to community leaders. “Our community is blessed with volunteer

can be individuals or teams. The fun begins at 10:00 AM and participants end around 4:00 PM at Mason Lake Recreation Area where they can order up dinner from Radio Fryer Food Truck as they hope to win the treasures.

leaders,” says Chamber director Heidi McCutcheon. “What RDI brings to the table is training and tools for those community leaders to become even more effective.” Each year’s cohort commits to an intensive schedule of one Friday evening and full Saturday, every month for six months, culminating in a community project.

On September 14, 2019, the second cohort’s community project showcases all our community has to offer for people of all ages and abilities. Discover Mason County Treasure Hunt encourages residents and visitors alike to explore more than 50 businesses, food and beverage venues, and shopping as well as scenic viewpoints, parks, and outdoor recreation. Each location gives entrants

a stamp on their game map or the chance to draw for a coin. The more stamps and gold coins received increases the likelihood of unlocking treasure boxes filled with gift certificates, prizes, and giveaways at Green Diamond’s Mason Lake Recreation Area— the final treasure stop.

Mark your calendars for September 14 and get out to enjoy Mason County! All proceeds to benefit Mason County students through the Skookum Rotary Scholarship Fund. To purchase tickets or for more information, go to facebook.com/discovermasonwa or email exploremason@gmail.com.

The entry fee for this one-day treasure hunt is $25 and includes a t-shirt; participants

It’s the doggone right thing to do Our Community Credit Union invests in K9 programs Just over a decade ago, Our Community Credit Union’s CEO Bert Fisher read an article in the Journal about the possibility of a K9 program at the Mason County Sheriff Office. “I called the sheriff up and told him we’d buy his dog for him,” he recalls. A self-proclaimed animal lover, Bert believes the K9 program impacts the community in a way that ties into the credit union’s mission. “We have an obligation to the community when it comes to safety; it can be in the form of fraud monitoring or credit education. In this case it was a dog.” Often times, police departments are undermanned which brings specific chal-

lenges. To combat this sometimes thankless profession, K9s can help an officer be more effective. Statistics show that a dog can search an area four times faster than a human being can – and with a much higher accuracy and a nose for detail. In rural areas, the addition of a K9 to the force can be a game changer. A K9 typically will have a 6-8 year career that doesn’t involve HR, increased wages, or employment taxes. They always show up for work and they are effective. If you’re a bad guy trying to run from the cops, having a dog after you is your worst nightmare. You aren’t going to get away, and you’re probably going to the hospital before you go to jail.

The K9 program was also attractive for other reasons. OCCU likes to take ownership of a program; when it comes to paying for the dogs, donating a vehicle, or providing supplies for the program there are direct results. To date, Our Community Credit Union has worked with Mason County Sheriff Office, Shelton Police Department, McCleary Police Department, Aberdeen Police Department and Grays Harbor Sheriff Office. This year, OCCU has supplied one dog to Shelton Police Department; another will likely follow before the year’s end.

Officer Gray and Rohn; Officer Birklid and Jano; Bert Fisher; Officer Cotte and Solo.

It’s a creative way to serve the community, something that OCCU firmly believes in. “People want to be successful and fulfilled – it’s creating the blend and the balance of the two that can be tricky,” Bert says. With nearly 100 employees and 8 branch locations, it is something he is quite familiar with. Now there are five police departments and sheriff’s offices who are benefitting from that experience and philosophy.

OCCU has been serving Shelton and Mason County for more than 75 years. In 1941, new loggers looking for loans were being turned away by local banks. Union leaders recognized the need and a short while later, the credit union was established. The institution has grown to 34,000 members but the commitment to their members and their willingness to go the extra mile remains constant. Learn more about their accounts, loans, investments, and other services online at ourcu.com or by visiting a local branch.

Be a tourist in your own town By Rachel Hansen Explore Hood Canal At the Chamber’s Expo it was remarkable how many people stopped at the Explore Hood Canal booth to ask questions. “Where can I hike? What type of pass do I need? Where can we go see waterfalls with our kids? What are the best fishing lakes?” In fact, of all the events I have attended in the last six months, out of the state and even out of country, more area maps and Fjord magazines were handed out during those six short hours here locally. We don’t need to head to the big cities to be entertained. The best year-round playground is definitely in our backyard and our neighbors are really starting to appreciate it. Recently, web and social media tracking for explorehoodcanal.com has shown a marked increase in local usage of the Olympic National Park Staircase entrance as well as Olympic National Forest access. If you haven’t already, I urge you to visit explorehoodcanal.com to check out local destinations and activities less than 30 minutes from our driveways!

Hamma Hamma River has three specimens of watery joy easily seen from the road, but the crowning glory is simply known as Hamma Hamma Falls. In the autumn, when the water is racing down its twotiered falls dropping a stunning fifty and twenty feet at a 90-degree angle, daredevil river paddling enthusiasts cart their kayaks to the top and ride the falls down. Located within the Mount Skokomish Wilderness, the falls are fed by Mount Washington, Skokomish, and Cruiser watersheds. As there are no glacier ice packs feeding the falls, water level fluctuations are noticeble as the drier summer months progress. To reach the falls, turn west off of US Highway 101 N between Brinnon and Hoodsport onto Hamma Hamma Road (also known as Forest Road 25). Travel for 6.4 miles past Hamma Hamma Campground and the Cabin Creek Road. When you come to the “T” intersection, turn right and follow signs to Lena Creek for around 7 miles (still continuing on FR 25) where you will come to a concrete bridge that crosses the Hamma Hamma River. Below the bridge you will find a breathtaking top view of the falls. The access trail is located before the concrete bridge just off of the pullout. Take care

along the steep, narrow access trail as the damp conditions can make the trail treacherous. On your return, stop in at the Hama Hama Oyster Saloon (located on Hwy 101) and partake in local seafood. They serve up delicious fresh seafood free and live music concerts weekends throughout the season. Visit hamahamaoysters.com for schedules. Pedal the historic timber rails in the Olympic Forest We’ve always been taught to never play on the tracks but there is one place in Mason County where it is perfectly okay and even encouraged! The whole family will love Vance Creek Railriders’ two-hour experience as pedal powered cars equipped like recumbent bicycles meander the curves following Green Diamond’s decommissioned timber railway. Railrider tickets are $26 for adults (and children over 12), $16 for kids under 12 years old. See vcrailriders.com or call (541) 519-4200 for reservations. They are open throughout the summer into OysterFest weekend. Everyone visits for our oyster Don’t wait until OysterFest to have the fresh oysters everyone craves. Fall is the best time for fresh seafood

in South Puget Around and Hood Canal. All you need is a license, boots, bucket, and a sense of adventure. Many of our state parks and DNR beaches are open for public harvesting; Twanoh, Potlatch, Lilliwaup and Grapeview are popular beaches on the South Sound. If you prefer to have the harvesting done for you, pick up fresh mussels, oysters, and clams at Taylor Shellfish and Hama Hama’s retail stores. Birdwatching in our estuaries With a majestic and varied landscape as a background for your birding endeavors, this is a gorgeous place to search for the over 250 species that call the Olympic Peninsula home. Many of the parks, including the 182-acre Twanoh State Park or the 135-acre Theler Wetlands offer a network of unpopulated trails where you can commune with the avian community.

Crafting a new experience for downtown Shelton “How long have you been open?” According to Mo Beben, she is asked that question almost every day. “Sometimes a few times a day,” she laughs as a couple newcomers enter Craft Pie & Art Bar and ask the question. The restaurant just celebrated its first anniversary, located in a darling space on Third Street between Railroad and Cota.

The space has it all: do-it-yourself crafts, art supplies and classes, a scrumptious menu of sweet and savory pies, homemade

So what’s next for the artistic Mo? Two things top her list. The first began earlier in the month as she commissioned a local artist to paint her exterior wall with a big slice of cherry pie. “I want to make use of the alley: clean it up, offer some outdoor seating, and make it look nice.” The second is something she’s been contemplating for some time. “Farm to plate! I want to shut down the street on a weekend evening and do dinner tables down the center.” She goes on to talk about the local Mason County bounty,

celebrating local produce, and considers how she’ll put together a menu in advance of the event. “It’s just hard to be sure what will be available in a large quantity when we begin to sell tickets,” she says. “But I’m going to do it. It’ll give us a chance to pause. And eat!” And if it’s like anything else that she’s put her mind to, the event will become an experience that everyone wants to attend. When you consider the sentiment, it is something we can use more of: Pause. And eat! Craft Pie & Art Bar is familyfriendly and is open Wednesday to Saturday from 12:00 – 8:00 PM. To learn more, go to craftartbar.com, call (360) 868-6331, or best yet just stop on by 118 S Third Street in downtown Shelton and check it out yourself.

Chamber beautification project grows Since the flower baskets that proudly adorn our byways were hung in May, the Chamber has asked its members and the community at large to contribute to the beautification program. This year, that ask was reinforced by a plea to assist in raising additional funds for new Christmas decorations.

The festive Christmas décor is now 65 years old and, while lovingly maintained, has surpassed the life expectancy by decades. There will be a significant expense to replace all of the decorations and will likely be phased in, area-by-area. The Chamber is relying on the community’s sense of pride and its Christmas spirit to help fundraise for the nearly $60,000 The Chamber is grateful to those expected to fully light up Christmas who have already contributed; more Town, USA during the winter months, than $14,000 has been raised.

in addition to the $20,000 annual cost for purchasing and maintaining the summer flower baskets. You can help! Gifts made to the beautification program provide for the upkeep of the flower baskets, streetlight banners, and Christmas decorations. There’s still time to sponsor a flower basket for $250. $400 sponsors the cost of a piece for the holiday display.

Gifts of any amount are appreciated and all donations go directly to beautification. Contributions may be made to the Chamber at PO Box 2389, Shelton or via PayPal. Please call (360) 426-2021 or visit sheltonchamber. org/beautification more information.
