Weekly Recap 09.09.22

Happy Friday, North Bend! Welcome to the newest edition of your Weekly Recap. Remember to click linked headlines for articles and posts.

High Fire Danger Alert this Weekend: Be extra careful this weekend, as there is a High Fire Danger alert across much of western Washington, Friday through Sunday. Remember to use caution with anything that could spark a fire. 

North Bend will be hopping on Saturday, September 10th. Here are a few local community events that are free to the community or serve as a fundraiser for a local non-profit organization. 

  • Sip Suds and Si, 6 – 9 p.m.: Sip Suds and Si is an art walk with live music, wine and beer tasting throughout Downtown North Bend, coordinated by the North Bend Downtown Foundation.
  • Free Shred-it Event, 8 – 12 p.m.: Residents are invited to stop by the North Bend City Hall for safe and secure shredding of unwanted documents. 
  • Clean Out Your Closet, 10 – 2 p.m.: Valley Center Stage (VCS) is asking for donations of gently used "soft goods" which includes clothing and household textiles. VCS’s goal is to raise $1,000 that will go back into live stage production costs, building and maintenance of the theatre.
