Construction AlertsDaytime construction starts on US 12/White Pass area in mid-May

Drivers could experience lengthy delays between Packwood and Rimrock Lake

WHITE PASS – Spring is here and the Washington State Department of Transportation contractor crews are gearing up to make much needed road repairs to US 12 between Packwood and Rimrock.

Between May and October, contractor crews will work to complete four projects on the popular 25-mile corridor. Contractor crews will also resurface portions of SR 410 on the west side of White Pass. Drivers are encouraged the plan for more than 30 minutes of added travel time.

Businesses, residents and recreational areas will remain accessible at all times. A 20-minute detour is planned along the Tieton Reservoir Loop Road in September and October to repave the Rimrock Tunnel and for rock scaling west of the tunnel. No holiday impacts are anticipated.

2012-2013 Tree Recycling Program a HUGE Success

Our 23nd Annual Christmas Tree Recycling event was once again a booming success.  During the 12 days after Christmas, we collected hundreds of trees and raised the most donations we’ve ever raised - $15,000.  Thanks to the many enthusiastic volunteers who worked in the cold, sunny weather, and to the many local businesses that partnered with us by lending us equipment and advertising time. And a huge thanks to Barnett Implement and Colonial Lawn & Garden for allowing us the use of their property to collect and chip trees.

... who received Yakima Rotary Club’s “Unsung Hero” award

An "Unsung Hero" is an individual from our community who goes above and beyond "service about self", Rotary International’s motto. Unsung Heroes demonstrate the following characteristics:

 - they are not paid for what they do
 - they have not received previous recognition for what they do
 - they are the "worker bees" as opposed to the "chiefs"
 - they would generally be defined as quiet miracle workers and
 - they are not Rotarians
