SEPTEMBER 26: Pecha Kucha
You can learn a lot about art in six minutes forty seconds. Twenty slides worth, in fact, say organizers of a new event coming to Chewelah this September. Pecha Kucha started in Japan as a way for designers to share their work with others. The Chewelah Arts Guild is adopting this speedy presentation format, so that viewers can get a taste of local artists’ work. Our 2017 Pecha Kucha included Ellen Breiter (pastels), Chris Lehwalder (painting), Tim Nielsen (jewelry), Margo Sety (watercolors) and Light Up the Park (a community art event). Each artist or group shared 20 slides about their art or event in less than seven minutes. Sponsored by Chewelah Arts Guild and the Independent, Bud Evans inspired this presentation after having attended a Pecha Kucha event at a dental convention. Evans searched around and found the closest Pecha Kucha event in Ellensburg, Washington. He wanted to bring the concept to Chewelah. The fast pace allows for interest to build around art while providing exposure to many different artists in one evening. Pecha Kucha is a free event and will be held at the Quartzite Brewing Co. on September 26, 2018.

SEPTEMBER 27: Crazy Politics at the Chewelah Public Library
Anti-establishment candidates rail against the government they seek to lead; populist groups like the Tea Party or Occupy Wall Street howl about corruption in political and economic institutions; and wild conspiracy theories abound. Has American politics always been so crazy? With political science professor Cornell Clayton at the Chewelah Public Library at 6 p.m. and explore how American politics has become an arena for suspicious and angry minds. Rather than debunking today’s conspiratorial claims, Clayton argues that both populism and a paranoid thinking have always played important roles in American politics. From the fear of the Illuminati, to the Know-Nothing movement in the 1850s, to Father Charles Coughlin, Huey Long, and the John Birchers, there always have been leaders and groups who see politics in apocalyptic terms and believe powerful elites are conspiring against ordinary Americans. Clayton’s talk explains the rise of today’s populist and conspiratorial politics, draws parallels to earlier periods, and describes how populism on the left and right today differ.

Gift Card Drawing
The 8th annual Chamber Auction will be offering a Gift Card Basket for a drawing. The tickets are only $5 to enter and there is no limit to the number of times you can enter.

What a powerful testimony by the public to acknowledge the work the Chamber does on behalf of the community.

What are the Auction proceeds used for?
The auction proceeds are used to collaboratively support the following organizations and community events: Chewelah Schools, Chewelah Float and the Attendants, Little League, Boofest, City Wide Cleanup and curb painting, Home & Garden Show, the early December “shop local” event, the semi-annual “Meet &G reet” your candidates, etc. In the summer of 2018 the Chamber voted to sponsor the Mayor’s Youth Awards throughout the year. In partnership with the City of Chewelah the Chamber sponsors the Flower Baskets, the Christmas Lights Downtown in the City Park and the “swag baskets” in front of businesses during the holiday season. The Chewelah Chamber is the “tourism” office for the City and provides regional promotion through brochures, presence at trade shows (Golf Show), targeted Facebook posts, print advertising in publications that promote our area as a destination of choice and a staffed local office presence. Coming soon, the Chamber will be providing streamed “Music on Main Street” as a unique experience in the downtown area.

The park with Chewelah Creek flowing through it, is the perfect setting for games, Fire Dancers, a Stagetime theater presentation, food vendors, a movie, costume parade, Pumpkin Flotilla, pumpkin carving, and Line Dancing. A Zombie Run, begun in the downtown business area, Night at the Museum, and a Sky Lantern finale all occur in or near the park. The goal of creating ‘walkable displays’ in the downtown business area and residential areas in decorating/lighting displays is a focus this fall. Details on the home decorating contest coming soon on Face book and in newspapers. Get your pumpkins, create a costume, search Pinterest or other sites to spur ideas for your delightful fall display, plan a carving party and join the community in Lighting Up the Park on October 27.
