Chataqua Celebrates 42 Years with new entertainment and all the fun you love! Community Celebrations invites you to help celebrate 42 years of Chataqua this summer – July 9-12. Community Celebrations is excited to bring in over 100 juried artists, vendors serving a wide variety of delicious foods in the food court, new specialty beers in the beer garden, and a weekend full of music and entertainment on CenterStage. The celebration begins July 9 with Chewelah Day to celebrate the local community. Throughout the weekend, CenterStage will showcase the usual popular entertainers along with some new acts this year. Chewelah’s own Singer/Songwriter Savannah Blain will headline Thursday

night for the first time, with special appearance by Chewelah’s Got Talent champion and electric violinist Skyler Colvin. Returning favorite Men in the Making will perform on Friday. The everpopular Kelly Hughes Band will get the parents and kids alike on their feet, on the stage, and dancing on the lawn on Saturday. Then The Sara Brown Band, of Kettle Falls, will take CenterStage for Sunday’s final act. Also this year The Ryan Larsen Band will make its first appearance at Chataqua on Friday and the Mansfield Family Band will be on stage Saturday.

Chataqua’s History Community Celebrations is a nonprofit, all volunteer organization founded in 1974 to originally serve as the planning group for the nation’s Bicentennial. As the first meetings were held, a mission statement was developed to carry the organization beyond the Bicentennial and into the future. The mission: To plan, develop and promote recreational, educational and cultural activities and facilities to benefit the residents of Chewelah and Stevens County. The name “Chataqua“ was initiated in 1978; a phoneticized adaptation of the Chautauqua tent shows that traveled the rural United States from the late 1880s to

about 1929. The original Chautauqua staged at Lake Chautauqua, New York continues today. The name is attributed to French trappers who encountered a Seneca Indian Tribe camped at a lake in upstate New York who went by the name Chatakas—hence lake or meeting place of the Chatakas — later simply translated “Meeting Place”. Chataqua has enjoyed phenomenal growth with attendance for the four-day run of the show estimated at over 50,000 visits. Proceeds enable Community Celebrations to fund numerous activities and projects. More information about Chataqua, Community Celebrations, and volunteer opportunities can be found at www.

A Message from the Mayor Welcome to Chewelah! We’re glad you’re here and hope you enjoy the uniqueness of our community. Many positive things are taking place – and the sense of community and cooperation has never been higher. Take, for instance, the Art Walk through the downtown area from restaurant to gallery to restaurant, with food samplings at each...or the Light Up the Park last October where 1100 carved pumpkins were lit at the same time…or the car cruise around two downtown blocks one summer evening…or the Christmas tree lighting where Gess Elementary

students gathered around and sang carols…or Jazzin in the Park… or Rev It Up for the Vets car show benefitting Wounded Warriors…or Nostalgia Days car show and Quilt Show…or Chewelah’s Got Talent.. or Fiddlers on the Peak and Music on the Mountain at 49º North..or one of the many local theater productions… and there’s much more! In 2017 the Chewelah Performing and Cultural Arts group plans to open a Performing Arts facility which will provide a venue for ballet, concerts, plays, and much more. Made possible by the City liquidating some assets in order to

build a new public works building/ shop, thereby making the old Armory building available. If you like to: fish, boat, swim, hike, bike, ride ATV, ski, golf, visit the Casino, camp, ride horses, walk, run, hunt, or watch the abundant wildlife (deer, elk, moose, bear, birds, cougar to name a few), or just wind down and relax, Chewelah is Your Place for All Seasons! Enjoy your stay and please visit again soon! Dorothy Knauss Mayor of Chewelah Knauss has been Mayor since 2014.

Bringing CHATAQUA to Life Since 1974

Community Celebrations, a non-profit organization, has been bringing outstanding events to the Chewelah community for over 40 years!

Membership is free; we encourage new members and are always searching for ways to increase our positive impact on the community. Join our group and share whatever time and talents you have with us.

Our History A small group of Chewelah area residents joined together in 1974 to assist “Rainbow“ Emily Touraine, a nationally recognized artist specializing in Native American themes, bring to Chewelah a display of Native American relics, art and ceremonial costumes. The event generated considerable interest and participation by local tribal members and non Indian artists in the area. The Chewelah group which had formed in 1974 decided to incorporate as a non-profit organization and develop a Bicentennial celebration for southern Stevens County. The name Community Celebrations was chosen and in 1975 the organization filed Articles of Incorporation with the Washington Secretary of State. Community Celebrations also filed for non-profit status with the Department of Internal Revenue and received the IRS 501-C3 designation late in 1975. see our website for the complete history

2015 Honored Citizen

Chris Carpenter

Chris Carpenter, Gess Elementary music teacher, has been named Chewelah’s 2015 Honored Citizen by the Chewelah Chamber of Commerce. Carpenter received four nominations from members of the community. “It’s not usually an easy choice, and this year was no different,” said Honored Citizen committee chairman Jared Arnold. “There are always many fine nominees, but Chris’ name rose to the top based on the number of nominations received for her.” The Chamber receives nominations each May and a three-person committee then chooses a winner that is announced in June. The winner is formally honored Thursday evening on CenterStage at Chataqua and rides as an honored guest in the Saturday parade. While all of the nominations referred to her work with the youth of the community, Carpenter is also active in the Chewelah Arts Guild, Community Celebrations’ Santa Social, St. Mary of the Rosary Parish, and serves as the Chaplain for the American Legion Auxiliary. “Chris is one of the most selfless people of our community when it comes to giving of herself and all that is required to make life better for the youth of Chewelah,” said Lorene Earl in her nomination letter. Carpenter Carpenter has been a teacher in Chewelah since 1979 and currently teaches music and ‘Beyond,’ a program for highly capable students, at Gess Elementary. Carpenter is the daughter of Jim and Monna Mach of Chewelah and grew up around the country and overseas, following her father’s Air Force career from Moses Lake to Alabama, Germany, and Mississipi. When her father was ordered to Vietnam, she attended 7th and 8th grade in Chewelah, living with her family at the home of her grandparents, Jack and Christy Newbury. Jim Mach finished his military career in Florida and the family returned to Chewelah for her Senior year of high school. She then attended Fort Wright College of the Holy Names in Spokane, earning a BA in Education. She returned to Chewelah after college and married Walt Carpenter in the Summer of 1979, then started teaching at the middle school in the Fall of that same year. Chris had previously met Walt while working at the Cougar Corner restaurant in Chewelah. Carpenter credits her parents for instilling in her a strong commitment to service and community. In fact, Jim Mach was selected as Chewelah’s Honored Citizen in 1985. “I learned that you just help out,” Carpenter said about her upbringing, while relating one of her first volunteer efforts, alongside her family, at a Mississippi soup kitchen after Hurricane Camille in 1969. Today, Carpenter can be seen around town with her Gess Elementary Choir and Guitar Club students, singing and playing for Christmas events, Veteran groups, Long Term Care residents, and at Quail Hollow Assisted Living. “The programs help build a sense of community and lets these wonderful people know ‘You belong here,’” she said about the groups her students perform for. “It can really brighten their day.” And for her students, “They have a chance to know they are part of something special,” Carpenter added. “Chris uses her lunch time to teach guitar club and choir for the elementary school students. Then she takes these kids out in the community to entertain the elderly at Long Term Care and other groups of citizens at various times of the year, introducing them to the value of community service,” explained Jennifer Bell-Towne in her nomination letter. “Chris inspires our children to be patriotic and good citizens of our community, or any community, through music and song. This is something that makes our community better and stronger for her efforts. I believe Chris has effected positive change in all of the individuals who have been fortunate enough to have been taught or have had the privilege of listening to the music/performances she has directed,” Lorene Earl added in her letter. Carpenter was also selected in 2014 to receive the Community Leadership Award by the Washington Association of School Administrators. “Chris strives to link Gess Elementary students to the community through music, art, and academics with events that honor veterans, senior and infimed citizens, and the community at large,” the award letter stated. “I love teaching,” Carpenter said. “My whole life . . . I always knew I would be a teacher. Everyday is an adventure!” “I especially enjoy when the kids come back to see me when they get older, or I get to be part of their milestones such as graduations or marriages,” she added about watching her students grow. Although Carpenter did not spend her entire childhood in Chewelah, she said she fell in love with the place at an early age during visits with her family. She said many of the features that attracted her then are still true now. “Chewelah is a wonderful place to grow up or come to,” she explained. “It’s the people, beauty of the area, arts, the faith community, accessibility to nature, multiple-generations and seniors that remain connected to the community.” “Chewelah has a tradition of hardworking people. There’s something for everyone and people can find their place, if they look,” Carpenter said. She was thankful to those who nominated her for this year’s award. “It was pretty overwhelming. I am lucky, proud . . . I am honored to be Honored Citizen!” Chris Carpenter has been married to her husband, Walt, for nearly 36 years and has three grown children, Bryan, Marlene, and Julia. She has one grandson, Luca.

An Dochas with the Haran Irish Dancers 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. An Dochas, Gaelic for “The Hope”, captivates audiences of all ages with their lively interpretation of traditional Irish music. The band members’ individual cultural and musical backgrounds culminate in a sound that is as dynamic as it is poignant. With a foundation of authentic instrumentation – Uileann pipes, bodhran, fiddle, mandolin and guitar – the band blends new and old, elegantly incorporating contemporary sounds into their diverse repertoire. Moving vocals, rife with loss, longing, energy, and adventure are layered with familiar and original melodies. Audiences are inspired as they hear the music of An Dochas and feel the sorrow, the joy, and The Hope. http:// An Dochas will be performing with the Haran Irish Dancers.

The Haran School of Irish Dance was founded some 15 years ago in Kettle Falls, Washington by a wonderful woman named Deirdre Abeid. In 2001, in response to many requests, Deirdre's oldest daughter Caitlin came to Spokane to open a Haran school here. Deirdre has passed on, but her legacy is carried on by her two talented daughters. The oldest daughter, now Caitlin Trusler, teaches our rapidly growing school on Spokane's south hill and younger daughter Claire Abeid teaches the original Kettle Falls school. The two groups work closely with each other and with An Dochas, a terrific Celtic band that includes Caitlin and Claire's brother, Mellad Abeid. Check out our links page for more details about the band. Our top dancers make up a touring troop that travel with An Dochas, performing fantastic, energetic shows all over the country and beyond. In recent years our dancers have traveled to performances in Japan and Austria and to the Irish Dance World Championships in Ireland. Photo taken by Robert Koch, Chataqua 2014.

The Beer Garden Find it near CenterStage!

The Beer Garden is a shady place for adults (age 21 and over) to enjoy visiting with friends and sipping some suds while catching the entertainment on CenterStage. The Beer Garden is operated by Community Celebrations in strict compliance with Washington State Liquor Control Board rules and regulations. WSLCB restrictions on over-serving will be fairly, but firmly enforced. The proceeds from the Beer Garden partially offset the cost of entertainment on CenterStage. We ask for your cooperation in following WSLCB rules: 1. Serving intoxicated patrons (over-serving) is prohibited. 2. Every person on the premises or seeking entry is required to have ID on their person to verify age identity. 3. After ID has been checked by security, a mark will be stamped on the hand allowing that person to leave and re-enter without having to check their ID again. The mark must be plainly visible. 4. Beer or wine or any other beverage may not be handed over the fence or carried into or out of the beer garden in any kind of container.

Volunteers help serve at the beer garden (2014 photo).

Chewelah Golf Tournament Every year the Chewelah Golf and Country Club hosts an annual golf tournament during Saturday and Sunday of the Chataqua Festival. Preregistration is required by July 4 to participate in this two-day event open to twoman teams. For the 2015 tournament, Saturday, July 11 is Best Ball and Sunday, July 12 is the Scramble. Call the pro shop at 509-935-6807 for more information or visit www.chewelahgolf. com. The Chewelah Golf & Country Club is a 27-hole facility open to the public. The beautifully maintained course is designed to challenge golfers of all ability levels. Scenic views and glimpses of abundant wildlife are extra benefits.

An RV park is adjacent to the course and includes modern laundry facilities and showers. Three tennis courts and the driving range are all within a short walk. The only 27-hole course in the region, the combination of both a nine and eighteen-hole venue has golfers raving about the versatility of the facility. The well designed fairways, traps, water hazards and greens are proving to be a major attraction for golfers from throughout the Inland Northwest. Another major attraction is the beautiful clubhouse and the Rusty Putter restaurant and lounge. Every conceivable amenity has been included for golfers and non-golfers. The clubhouse has been the site for many large area functions and serves that purpose nicely. For informations on clubhouse availability and reservations, call 509-935-7251.

Welcome to CHATAQUA!

The Chewelah Golf and Country Club is the only 27-hole course in the region.
