Upcoming Events for Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce
Updated: 7 hours 43 min ago
The Morning Rotary Club of Ellensburg is pleased to invite your business/organization to join us in an exciting community event. In an effort to support our local food bank, we are planning to hold the first annual Ellensburg Morning Rotary Munch Madness competition. Our goal is to engage the Ellensburg area businesses and organizations in a friendly competition against each other to raise food for the Ellensburg FISH Food Bank. Your group could have the opportunity to help to raise over 5,000 pounds of food to donate to FISH. Last year Ellensburg High School students alone raised over 3,000 pounds. Just think what we can do as a larger community!
The Munch Madness competition will be structured similar to the NCAA “March Madness” college basketball tournament. Businesses and organizations participating will be placed in tournament style brackets as a team, and on a weekly basis from the dates of March 3rd – April 4th, teams will collect food. On Fridays during these dates, teams will bring their collected food to the FISH food bank from the hours of 3pm to 5pm to weigh in their contributions. The teams that bring in the most food in pounds move on in the brackets. Teams knocked out of the competition are encouraged to support and partner with another team of their choice that has moved ahead.
If your business/organization is up for this challenge, here is how you can get involved.
· To participate, send the name and contact person of your business/organization to the following email: email@example.com
or by calling Heather Burfeind at 509-929-2450 or Sarah Keith 509-607-9813 by February 21, 2014.
· Once we receive your information, we will set up the Munch Madness tournament brackets and send them out to participating groups. Tournament brackets will also be published in the Daily Record and posted on the Ellensburg Morning Rotary Facebook.
· Then, on March 3rd, it is “ready, set, and go” to collect food for FISH!
This is an electrifying community-wide opportunity for a valued community service. The power of combining forces to serve an important service organization such the FISH Food Bank has lasting efforts for the Ellensburg population in need. Friendly competition for a good cause – it doesn’t get much better than this. The Ellensburg Morning Rotary Club looks forward to your participation and support of this opportunity.
We know you will consider how your involvement in this event can make a larger impact on the Ellensburg community!
Anna Marie Newman RN, LMP, HTCP/I will give a short introduction to Healing Touch therapy. During her Nursing career she has worked in both city and rural hospitals. During this presentation she will give us some insight as to why Healing Touch training is now accepted as continuing education credit for Nurses, and how it has won acceptance to be practiced as a complementary healing technique in many hospitals.
Healing Touch is an integrative energy therapy that is used in conjuncton with traditional therapies. It is a compassionate energy therapy in which practitioners use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental, spiritual health and self-healing. Healing Touch uses gentle, light or near-body touch to clear, balance, energize and support the human energy system in an effort to promote healing for the whole person. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the energy system thus creating an optimal environment for the body’s innate tendency for healing to occur. If you have wanted to learn about Healing Touch, but have not had the time available to participate in a full two-day class, this presentation will give you the opportunity to learn more about this powerful healing modality.

Chances of spotting a wolf in the state of Washington are growing as the number of wolves and confirmed wolf packs rapidly increases, according to a 2012 survey by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Wolves play a critical role in promoting a healthy ecosystem. However, they also can cause trouble for cattlemen and for big game hunters. Central Washington University?s Museum of Culture and Environment is sponsoring a panel discussion on the complicated issue of Washington wolves at 5:30 p.m. February 27 in Dean Hall. The panel will feature speakers with diverse viewpoints including Jay Kehne, an outreach associate with Conservation Northwest, Lee Davis, a local hunter and past president of Kittitas County Field and Stream, Scott Becker, a wolf biologist with the WDFW in Wenatchee, and Sam Kayser, Ellensburg rancher and president of the Kittitas County Cattlemen's Association. Audience discussion will be encouraged during what is expected be a lively discussion. The event is held in conjunction with the museum?s exhibit Wolves in Washington State, which was organized by the Burke Museum, University of Washington, in consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The museum is open 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday. Parking is free on the CWU campus after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends. For more information, contact Museum@cwu.edu or call 509-963-2313.
WORKSHOP: KNOW THYSELF - WHO AM I? presented by New Perspective Healing Center
"To know oneself, one must ask the question, Who Am I? By asking the question, Who Am I? the JOURNEY of knowing thyself begins" ~ Karin Stanley
In this workshop you will meet others who are on their own quest to learn and know who they truly are. You will enter into the healing sanctuary and begin by releasing the day’s activities through a guided meditation. This will prepare you for the next two hours, setting your energy into the space of learning and experiencing that which comes from within self, in order to discover Self.
The workshop itself will include 2-3 experiential meditation exercises. These exercises will be designed to gain access into your own personal soul journey on the topic of “Who Am I?” Each participant will have the opportunity to share their own experiences and learn from other class participants. There will be time for open dialogue into the topic while providing information from other sources as well as my own story and experience into this important topic of “knowing thyself by asking the question, “Who Am I?”

MY MESSESGE TO YOU
I bring forth spiritual teachings – those things in which I too have learned, taught from the Divine within my own soul. Many teachings will resonate with you but you may not fully understand or know yet of its complexity, nor its simplicity. I am here to bring old teachings but in a new way, a way that is intended for this time. For it is time to know who it is you truly are. You must know this from the inside and then manifest it outward in your experience of being human. This is The Way. This has been the intent all along. I begin here, as directed/guided by that which is the ALL, the I Am. Come, listen, experience, know. The time is NOW to begin the deep process of learning and knowing Thyself by asking the question, Who Am I?
