Car club keeps tradition cruising at food bank

The Olympic Peninsula Chapter of Club Miata Northwest kept their tradition zooming on Dec. 12, donating funds and food to the Sequim Food Bank for the fourth consecutive year.

Club members drive to the food bank, 144 W. Alder St., each December after their annual Christmas dinner (this year at Paradise Restaurant) to make donations.

The donations come close each year to the food bank’s Christmas basket delivery times.

This year, volunteers and staff hand out turkey and all the fixings including a pumpkin pie from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Dec. 20-21, and noon-4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23.

Volunteers from the Girl Scouts, Sequim’s Rotary clubs, Sequim Seventh-day Adventist Church and Trinity United Methodist Church stuffed the bags on Dec. 17.

For more information, and/or to donate, call 360-683-1205 or 360-461-6038 or visit www.sequimfoodbank.org.

The Olympic Peninsula Chapter of Club Miata Northwest meets next at noon, Jan. 9 at Sequim’s Baja Cantina, 531 W. Washington St. For more information, call club president Mike Witkin at 360-457-1082.

Sequim city councilors agreed in late July to extend a moratorium for six months on manufactured home developments so city staff and the planning commission could better analyze the Sequim Municipal Code’s language on private streets. Discussions about private streets in manufactured home developments came up late last year during the binding site plan application for Lavender Meadows, a 217-site manufactured home park at the intersection of North Sequim Avenue and Port Williams Road. It was approved earlier this year. Sequim Gazette photo by Matthew Nash
