Volunteers of the Month – December

Volunteers of the Month – Distinguished Young Women of Ellensburg 

We have had the great pleasure of working with the Distinguished Young Women of Ellensburg at our annual Teddy Bear Tea event for many years. This group is truly top notch and gives you the upmost faith that “kids these days” are hardworking, thoughtful, professional, and generous. This year, we were able to work with Tess Preppernau, Madison Thompson, Sophie Hanson and Annie Kang, four wonderful young women who showed excitement and dedication in their volunteer work.

Dream Big

John Graf, EDA Board Member

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with the owner of The Pearl Bar & Grill, Blake Collins. I expected that our time together would be a fairly typical visit; me asking him questions about his business and him replying with boilerplate responses. 

Sunday Funday!

Morgan Arbuckle, Admin Assistant 

When I decided to stay in Ellensburg after attending CWU, I was asked the typical question “what’s in Ellensburg?” Well, the sole reason I decided to stay was because of what’s in Ellensburg. This small town has plenty of options to shop and dine while supporting local businesses. You can be an Ellensburg resident, or just someone passing through, and something is bound to interest you!

Volunteer of the Month – August

Volunteer of the Month – August 

Dawn Alford, Organization Committee 

Our August Volunteer of the Month is someone who shines bright and brings a positive energy to each committee meeting. You’ve more than likely seen Dawn volunteering at EDA events, strolling throughout CWU’s campus, or passing by on a local trail. While she is fairly new to the community, she has wasted no time finding her happy places.

Downtown Possibilities Survey

We have created a survey regarding downtown and possibilities for future businesses. This survey only takes about 3 minutes to complete.

This Downtown Possibilities Survey was created by the staff and Board of Directors to gain more insight on how the community interacts with downtown and what they would like to see in the future. This information will be utilized for projects including pop-up shops and business recruitment.
