Rick Obar

Rick Douglas Obar  
Born June 30, 1959 

He was gallant, respectful, thoughtful, a patient teacher and unknowingly romantic. He made us all feel safe and loved. He laughed through each day. His shoulders were big and his heart was bigger. Weather it was his family or a stranger he was always the first there to help. He was proud of being a hard-working man and proud of his time in the US Navy, as his commander said his actions set higher standards. We are all better for him being in our lives He passed on October 17, 2015. We will love him forever.

Big Rigs will be a part of this year’s Show and Shine

Dear Big Rig Owners and Clubs, 

The Sky Valley Chamber of Commerce is preparing for the 23rd Annual Sultan Shindig Classic Show and Shine Car/Truck Show which will be held Sunday July 10, 2016. 

We added a Commercial Big Rig category to the contest. The Sky Valley’s history and culture revolve around these wonderful rigs. Logging, excavation, mining, and agriculture are and have always been the backbone of the Sky Valley. We’d like to expand this area of the show & shine to be a tribute to that history, including fire trucks, etc.  

Please share with your friends and club members. Thanks!

 Sky Valley Arts Council to Restore Startup Gym

The Sky Valley Arts Council is pleased to announce their intention to restore the historic Startup Gym and put it back into community service as an event center. The Startup Gym has a colorful, story filled history beginning with its construction in 1937. George Startup, owner of a local saw mill, donated all of the wood used in the construction and community volunteers built this very sturdy building. According to locals the only thing that was hired out during the construction was a company to set the roof beams. Arts Council President Mary Ritzman said “The Sky Valley Arts Council plans to continue this proud Sky Valley tradition by using local volunteer talent to restore the building to its former glory. We are currently raising money to buy the materials we will need to restore the building.”  

The Sultan School District owns the property but due to budget constraints and the fact that the property doesn’t work programmatically for them the building has been neglected for many years. The Arts Council and the School District worked together to come up with a plan to save this important historic asset for future generations to enjoy.

According to project manager, Debbie Copple, the number one priority is a new roof and gutter system. Followed closely by repairing/replacing siding, painting, plumbing, repairing the rain damage in the kitchen area, renovating the kitchen, kitchen flooring, etc.

The Arts Council website has more information, including how to donate money or supplies. You may also stop by the Sky Valley Visitor Center in Sultan or mail to Sky Valley Arts Council, PO Box 18, Sultan, WA 98294   All donations are tax deductible! www.skyvalleyartscouncil.com or call Debbie Copple for more information or to volunteer at 425-238-2651.

Did you know that kindness has side effects? Research has shown that kindness makes us happier, gives us healthier hearts, slows aging, makes for better relationships, and that kindness is contagious. Read “5 Beneficial Side Effects of Kindness,” by David Hamilton with the Huffington Post for the full story. We have provided you with a Random Acts of Kindness Toolkit to help spread kindness here at Snohomish County as well as our home and community.


Enjoy the 2016 Sky Valley Community Celebration Video – What a Great Year!
