Stop by the Roslyn Visitor Center in the historic NWI Company Store building, this Friday and Saturday for the return of the University of Washington’s Storefront Studio. This is a great opportunity to learn about Roslyn and the economic redevelopment projects underway. Friday evening is a reception to welcome the 14 architecture students to Roslyn and hear from community members about the town. The reception runs from 5PM until 8PM.

Come on up and learn more about Roslyn!

St. Patrick’s Dinner – Cle Elum Eagles

Cle Elum EaglesCorned beef and cabbage dinner will be served at the Cle Elum Eagles this Saint Patrick’s Day – that’s March 17th for the non-Irish.  I believe non-members are welcome for the dinner, but you may want to call the Eagles to confirm if you are thinking about going 509-674-2385.  But even if you are not a member, generally a member will sign you in as a guest with no questions asked if you just introduce yourself, especially at event like this.

The Cle Elum Eagles were established in 1903 and are located 220 North Pennsylvania Avenue just off a block of the East 1st Street (the main street through Cle Elum).

According to a recent article in the Daily Record News the Cle Elum Eagles have been struggling of late.  The membership is off from 1100 down to about 600 which makes it difficult to pay operation costs.  The Eagles are not going without a fight though.  They recently raised $11,000 at an auction/dinner and have regular weekly events, like all-you-can-eat spaghetti on Tuesdays, as well as other yearly events.  People attending events is the best way to keep a club going.  All the more reason to have corned beef and cabbage on Thursday night to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the Cle Elum Eagles.
