And just FYI, the Town Center where our depot and little train ride is located has named that area, “Depot Park” and the lovely strip of grass beside the tracks where we hold the Open Airs has been renamed, “Railroad Avenue Park.”  

Of course I am looking for vendors, space for many more, lots of competition.  Would so appreciate you putting the word out to your vendor lists and whatever you are able to do to include the Open Airs in your announcements and with your contacts.

The fee is still $10 for the summer for vending from one to all five markets.

Sultan Swoosh 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament

Mark your calendars and start practicing your jump shot! The Sultan Community Alliance (Alliance) and Sultan Youth Basketball (SYB) are busy organizing the second annual “Sultan Swoosh,” an all-ages 3-on-3 basketball tournament held on First and Main Street near Sultan’s River Park.  

This year’s Sultan Swoosh tournament takes place Saturday, July 21, 2018, so save the date! Registration is open now, for those interested in getting ahead of the game. Like last year, four-person teams are organized by grade level from third through eighth grade, and by skill at the high school and adult levels. The $40 entry fee ($10 per player) applies to teams in all age brackets. Sultan Swoosh offers a three-game guarantee to ensure that each team receives the opportunity to participate in multiple games. 

During 2017’s inaugural event, a total of 27 four-person teams in nine different age divisions battled it out on a five courts. Tournament participants, volunteers and spectators commended the Alliance and SYB for the well-organized, cohesive event. 

Sultan Swoosh was established as a way to build community, promote physical activity, and provide families with the opportunity to rediscover the Sultan they know and love. The event was built by volunteers and bolstered by donations from local businesses, with various service-oriented groups coming forward to help. 

The goal is to build Sultan Swoosh into a trademark, annual event, welcoming players from all over Sultan, Monroe and the greater Sky Valley region.

History Matters

We are reaching out to you, our community, to help us keep the Sky Valley Historical Society’s Sultan Museum open so that the Sky Valley’s history can continue to be told.

We believe that the Sultan historical Museum matters to the citizens of the Sky Valley, Here’s why:

The Sultan Museum has a vital story to tell…to school children, newcomers, and residents and tourists who visit each year.

Without our Historical Society our Sultan History will begin to vanish.

The society’s volunteers, have cataloged literally thousands of photographs, documents, and artifacts for research and display to help us keep our motto of “Preserving Yesterday for Tomorrow”.

Operating costs are covered through donations from community, selling Sultan History books, DVD’s, cookbooks, and membership dues.

Come visit the museum (located above the Post Office) at 4th & Main St., Sultan.

Open the first & third Tuesday, the third Saturday 1-4 pm, or open by appointment. 360-793-0534 or 360-793-1198. We look forward to hearing from you!

—Iris Jensen, President
Sky Valley Historical Society, PO Box 1074, Sultan, WA 98294


Sultan Flood Preparation

Flooding happens. You need to take the following precautions in order to protect your business, home or rental property.

  1. Nobody should be surprised by flooding. Save the flood gauge/prediction site to your phone/desk top and monitor it daily. ugly web address will take you directly to local river information).
  2. Purchase supplies prior to imminent flooding. Often, these materials sell out during or just prior to flood events. Also, when time is critical, you do not want to waste precious minutes driving around the Valley looking for visqueen because youchose not to plan ahead: Rolls of plastic (enough to cover all doorways up to three feet) and duct tape.
  3. Youtube sandbagging. Surprisingly, there is a right way and a wrong way to protect your building. Each year we see structure severely damaged because sandbags were applied incorrectly, thus rendering them obsolete. This expensive and unnecessary damage can be avoided by educating yourself and crew before the waters start to rise. Once flooding begins and the adrenalin kicks in, you will not have time to watch videos on how to sandbag a doorway. Do it now.
  4. Sandbags are provided by Snohomish County and are available FOR FREE to all residents in the Sky Valley. They may be picked up at the Sultan Public Works building, located behind the Food Bank at 703 First Street. If your property becomes inaccessible due to roads flooding, contact City Works at (360) 793-9509 to make arrangements to pick up sandbags ahead of time.
