Snoqualmie Valley Updates: Garage Sale Final Day, YMCA Lawn Mowing, Water Motion Headquarters Construction, Baseball Playoffs & Prom

Snoqualmie Ridge Community Garage Sale Final Day

The Snoqualmie Ridge Community-Wide Garage Sale continues today, Sunday, May 20th, from 9AM-4PM.  The annual garage sale is normally only Friday and Saturday.  The Snoqualmie Ridge ROA has extended this year’s event.  After your yard sale is over, you can donate leftover summer clothes to Snoqualmie Valley families! One VOICE (Valley Organizations in Collective Effort) is collecting gently used summer clothing and shoes for local families in need for its second annual Summer Resource Fair on Saturday, June 2, 2012.  Donations can be dropped off at the Encompass Main Campus, 1407 Boalch Ave. NW, during business hours until Wednesday, May 30, 2012.

Snoqualmie YMCA

Just as Snoqualmie YMCA Director, Dave Mayer, indicated, the Y’s lawn was mowed for the first time yesterday.  The site was finally dry enough to mow the grass without damaging the soil and bare spots created by poor drainage over the wet winter and spring months.  For all you fond of the grass’s blue flowers.  Don’t fret.  They will re-grow as the grass lengthens again.

Water Motion Headquarters Construction on Snoqualmie Ridge

Work continues on the new Water Motion Sports Headquarters in the  Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park.  Construction crews continue the grading work for the foundation of the new 135,000 square foot building, as well as parking lot area.  From the construction company:

“Kidder Mathews is proud to announce the ground breaking of Motion Water Sports’ new 135,000 SF Pacific Northwest corporate headquarters in Snoqualmie, Washington. The new state of the art facility will provide consolidated distribution, manufacturing and 21,000 SF of R&D / office for their numerous water sports brands which include such household names as HO Sports, Connelly, O’Brien and Liquid Force.  The new building will enjoy unobstructed views of Mt. Si and is steps from the Snoqualmie Ridge retail center.” Read more.


Mount Si Baseball Playoff Race Ends

The Mount Si Baseball team was knocked out of the state playoffs yesterday evening with a tough quarter finals loss to Kelso, 5-2.  Earlier in the day they beat Peninsula of Gig Harbor in a close 2-1 game to earn a spot in that quarter final game.  To read all the details visit Snoqualmie Valley Sports Journal.  What an amazing season.


Last but not least, the Mount Si High School Prom happened last night at the Shilshole Bay Beach Club – for those wondering why so many girls were at local nail and hair salons yesterday, as well as buses and limos in the area last night.
