I grew up in the country on the Moe farm east of town so going to “town” (as we referred to it) was always a special treat. I look back on these times with fond memories. I’d like to think it wasn’t long ago that I was in downtown Ellensburg with my family visiting the stores of my childhood or attending a special event.

As busy professionals, it took Gemma Koreski and I a number of times to synch our calendars for today’s interview. She has a new role at the Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce while I work at Central Washington University. We both volunteer for the EDA. So how does a busy working professional, such as our February Volunteer of the Month, manage to work full-time and volunteer? In this interview, Gemma explains though it can be a challenge, it’s very rewarding and well worth the effort.

Ellensburg’s downtown made a name for itself as it transformed from streets of vacant buildings to a cultural center alive with local shops and restaurants. While the charming blocks of downtown Ellensburg are a treat to explore and experience throughout the year, there is no time more magical to visit the downtown area than during the (fast approaching) holiday season!

The Ellensburg Downtown Association being nominated as a top-ten candidate for the Great American Main Street Award is exciting and a BIG DEAL for Ellensburg! Great leadership and hundreds of Ellensburg folks have contributed to this recognition and that is what makes this nomination so special.

The Great American Main Street Award has always been a topic of conversation in the EDA office. Not only is the award a nationally recognized one, but to even apply takes years of preparation within your Main Street program and your community. Even if you’re a certified Main Street program, that might not mean you’re qualified to apply for this award. Not yet, away.
