SHINDIG NEWS July 13, 14 & 15

Next weekend’s going to be great! Timber Monster Brewery is going to be hosting the Shindig beer garden and they even made a special Sultan Shindig Shandy. JD Slicks is moved into their new place in the Old Candy Cane Restaurant and Bubba’s Roadhouse has some great bands planned! The Bikers for Full Bellies Motorcycle show is coming along really well. The Bike Show & Shine will be on Main Street after the parade. There will also be special parking for all motorcycles on 4th Street for a $10 donation which will be split between the local food programs. The Car & Truck Show & Shine is celebrating its 25th Silver Anniversary. Great entertainment on the Main Stage in River Park and some wonderful vendors complement the amazing logging contest that we are so well known for.

We really appreciate your support in helping to promote Shindig. Our crew of hardworking volunteers is always looking for more team members. We’d love to welcome you to the team!

Give me a call or email at any time to talk about the options and what you might enjoy: 360-793-0983


Scam Alert

Gold Dust Days Youth Bike Event

I am writing on behalf of the Gold Dust Days Committee and Gold Dust Royalty. Every year at Gold Dust Days on Friday, July 27 evening we have a bike decorating booth in which the kids of the community can decorate their bikes or other wheeled items and then ride in a parade to share their decorated bikes.

This year we have decided to turn it into more of an event and besides the bike decorating we will provide bike safety with a bike rodeo, a bike exchange for those who need a larger or smaller bike or a child who can’t afford a bike, a raffle of bike items like helmets, bike bells, baskets, horns, etc., each child will receive a raffle ticket at no cost that participates of Friday and a goodie bag with some cool swag. The kids that participate will also get to ride in the big parade on Saturday this year.

Do to our community being a low-income area we are also hoping to get some bikes donated so our community members can nominate some children in the area that need a bike. No child should have to go without and it is great exercise for the summer.

I am asking you as an individual or business for your help in making this happen. We are looking for help in the following areas:

  • Items to be used to decorate the bikes
  • Items for the raffle
  • Items for the goodie bags
  • New bikes for those in need
  • Gently used bikes for the bike exchange
  • Cash Donation to help where needed

We are very excited for this new event and look forward to hearing back from you on where you can help. If you have any questions you can call me at 425-238-0289 or email me at golddustroyalty@hotmail.com or contact Debbie Copple at the Sky Valley Chamber at 360-793-0983. Items can be dropped off at the Sky Valley Chamber in Sultan.

Thank you for your consideration in helping a great event!

Sincerely, Patty Baller
Event Chair and Director of Gold Dust Royalty
