Skookum Alison Smith of Olympic College Shelton joined us Wednesday to discuss the trials and tribulations of managing a state college during a pandemic.  She also shared a bit of information about Cedar High School moving onto the Olympic College Shelton campus this fall.  The partnership with Shelton School District will allow students to have the opportunity to take college-level courses that lay the groundwork for certificates, or even an associate or bachelor’s degree. You can learn more about this innovative new partnership on the Olympic College website http://ow.ly/6wE750F1Gou
 
Time to party and celebrate the end of the year.  Skookum's installation of officers and year end celebration is Thursday, June 24 from 6 to 9 pm.  President Brad Miller and  President Elect Joyce Gorny are presiding over the festivities.  Hope to see you!
Skookum Justin Baze and team have done a great job orchestrating this year's Music in the Park concerts.  It is a great line up of musicians and community sponsors.  We need your assistance with set up, park litter patrol and greeting the community for each concert.  This year we will be highlighting our various Skookum programs and projects such as Shelter Box, Scholarships and Community Grants during the concert series.  How will we do this you ask? Well, Mike Barnard the Shelter Box ambassador will be setting up the Shelter Box display and talking with concert goers.  Evan Tozier will be presenting the 4th Quarter Community grants checks and Denis Leverich is hoping to be able to introduce a few scholarship recipients on stage prior to a performance.  We have room for presenting some of our other Skookum projects that we have displayed at OysterFest in the past.  Please reach out to Teri if you would like to help at the event.
