  1. Make A Difference Day epitomizes creative community building and we can all find a way to help out this Saturday, Oct. 22 during our annual day community service.
  2. Here is a wonderful way that any person or business could make a big difference in a classroom and support one of North Central Washington's most creative teachers: Sign up to sponsor a grant through the North Central Education Foundation.
  3. The second annual Wenatchee Mini Maker Faire is coming to the Wenatchee Convention Center on Saturday, Oct. 29. It's great to see the Maker movement continuing to blossom in our valley with kids taking lead roles.
  4. This week, Wenatchee High School is going to honor “Baker’s Dozen,” the celebrated 1973 defense that annihilated every Columbia Basin Big Nine offense, and beat two future NFL quarterbacks in the playoffs. The school will also be honoring Jeff Kintner, the 2006 graduate who starred in football, track and basketball and went on to a storied career at Whitworth.
  5. The collaborative regional effort to reduce the risk of losses from catastrophic wildfires appears to be setting the stage for significant change.
