Driftwood Theater presents “Love Letters” by A.R. Gurney @ Driftwood Theater
Jul 6 @ 7:30 pm – Jul 28 @ 7:30 pm
Driftwood Theater presents "Love Letters" by A.R. Gurney @ Driftwood Theater | Aberdeen | Washington | United States

LOVE LETTERS

Written by A. R. Gurney

Directed by Ben Hohman

Reader’s Theatre for all ages.

Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through the boarding school and college years, where Andy goes on to excel at Yale and law school, while Melissa flunks out of a series of “good schools.” While Andy if off at war, Melissa marries, but her attachment to Andy remains strong and she continues to keep in touch as he marries, becomes a successful attorney, gets involved in politics and eventually is elected to the U.S. Senate. Meanwhile, her marriage in tatters, Melissa dabbles in art and gigolos, drinks more than she should and becomes estranged from her children. Eventually she and Andy do become involved in a brief affair, but it is too late for both of them. However, Andy’s last letter, written to her mother after Melissa’s untimely death, makes it eloquently clear how much they really meant and gave to each other over the years; physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.

Performance dates: Every Friday and Saturday evening with curtain time at 7:30. Each weekend features a different cast.

Tickets are $15.00 and are available online at:

Let's Talk -- Climate Change @ Fairfield Inn and Suites

Have you noticed the snow and cold this winter? Is it part of the future?
The Chehalis River Basin Land Trust is sponsoring a community forum to talk about climate change and how our community can respond.

The discussion will be introduced by Centralia College instructor Dr. Lisa Carlson. She offers this statement: Climate change is here. Predictions of warmer temperatures, more wildfire and more intense storms seem to be coming true. What does this mean for Washington State? How will my family and I be affected? What can we do to prepare for it and help reduce our climate impact?

The event will be on Wednesday, March 6th, at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Grand Mound. The event is from 6 to 8 PM; light refreshments will be served.

Rural Community Vitality Forum @ Grays Harbor College

Washington’s economy is booming
Are you experiencing the boom in your business, organization, and community?

When it comes to training existing employees and finding qualified new hires, the challenge is real in rural Washington. Education, workforce training, and other services may or may not be available where you live. If they are—then are they working for you? Effective policy for rural regions can only be informed by the “lived in” experience of people in those communities. That’s the purpose behind this Rural Community Vitality Forum in Aberdeen that asks the local community what’s working, and what’s not. Tell us your story, give us your perspective, and help shape solutions. This will be a facilitated but free-flowing discussion, so come prepared to participate.

We’re listening, and so is the U.S. Department of Labor
This rural “listening tour” is brought to you by the state’s Workforce Board, which helps convene and oversee the state’s workforce system. An economist from the Workforce Board will provide a snapshot of the local economy. Then a facilitator funded by the U.S. Department of Labor will help us capture your comments and frame next steps. Once the comments are compiled you’ll have a chance to provide input before a report is provided to state and federal policymakers. This is your chance to be heard, and make a difference where you live.

We need a firm headcount for our business breakfast (7:30 a.m.) and our community forum. So register today for these free events at:

Welcome to Ocean Shores Sign Dedication & Kick-Off 50th Anniversary Celebration @ Ocean Shores City Enterance
Dec 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Welcome to Ocean Shores Sign Dedication & Kick-Off 50th Anniversary Celebration @ Ocean Shores City Enterance

On November 3, 1970 by special election and signed off by former Washington Secretary of State Ludlow Kramer, the community of Ocean Shores became a certified city. As such, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Ocean Shores’ cityhood.

Anniversary events will begin with a kick-off celebration recognizing the Welcome to Ocean Shores sign, erected 20 years ago at the city gates, as a significant historical feature.

Hosting this event, the Museum of the North Beach and Ocean Shores Coastal Interpretive Center with missions to preserve and share area history have joined forces to erect an informational plaque explaining that artist Judy McVay created the sign. The Mayor and City Council are expected to attend.

Judy McVay along with her brothers pioneered chainsaw carving as an artform, founded the chainsaw carving expo at the Puyallup Fair in the 1980’s, were instrumental in creating local carving events, and Judy was the first Washington woman to win a chainsaw carving competition. In addition to creating the Welcome to Ocean Shores sign, her work can be seen all along the Washington Coast, the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway (Hwy 101) and many other locations.

In Ocean Shores, Judy’s work can be viewed at Moby Dick’s on Point Brown Ave. where her “Sand Castle” sign hangs as well as inside the Convention Center vestibule where collaborative pieces created by Judy and her son, Boaz Backus can be found. Boaz along with brother, Steve founded the “sawdust” portion of Ocean Shores’ famed Sand and Sawdust Festival.

“The Welcome to Ocean Shores sign is a highly photographed, significant part of the experience when entering the city and should be recognized as such,” said Coastal Interpretive Center Board President, Nancy Eldridge. “The Museum of the North Beach and our friends at the Coastal Interpretive Center are proud to recognize this historical artifact,” added Museum of the North Beach Executive Director, Kelly Calhoun.

Sign dedication will commence at noon, Saturday January 18, 2020 at the city gates. A historical marker will be placed near the sign and this event will officially kick-off the year long Ocean Shores 50th anniversary celebration. Everyone is encouraged and invited to attend!
