Second Annual Inter-Dependence Day – Fri, July 6

Chimacum Corner's 2nd Annual Inter-Dependence Day Celebration

By Katy McCoy

Mark those calendars and start practicing! You and your beloved inter-dependent neighbors will be “DOWN ON THE CORNER” eating local cuisine, tapping your toes, grinning big-time, and perhaps even performing!

The line-up is as follows:

  • 5-7 pm:  buffet dinner, salmon cart, and free ice cream while listening to Port Townsend’s favorite jug band, the “Crow Quill Night Owls
  • 7-9 pm:  all ages no judge talent show “Quimper’s Got Talent” – Show us your stuff!

Dinner buffet:  This year for dinner we are firing up hot coals and chef Arron Stark will be grilling up a variety of local treats including Wapanitia Brats and Short’s grass-fed beef hot dogs and burgers. Salads are being prepared by Dream City. All this for a suggested donation of $7.50 each (kids 10 and under only $3).  There will be enough to feed 200, but better get there early.

A Salmon Option:  We are pleased to announce that Inter-Dependence Day corresponds with the return of Lela’s Cape Cleare Salmon Cart to the Corner.  She will be there every Friday, noon-6pm, but for the big party will stay open until 7.  Welcome back Lela!

FREE Ice Cream Cones:  YAY!  Just like last year, we’ll be giving away 500 FREE ice cream cones! Only this time we’ll be scooping from our sparkly new scoop counter which John assures us can be “easily” moved outside.  

Jug Band Fun:  We scored! Got the CROW QUILL NIGHT OWLS all lined up to entertain us while we eat. Check them out on You Tube and see if they don’t bring a smile to your face!

All Ages Talent Show:  Regarding the talent show, we will have a stage and amplification with multiple microphones. We’re looking for skits, song, magic, movement, stories, poems, animal tricks or anything really. The only stipulation is that your “talent” is family-friendly and less than 5 minutes long including intro, set-up, take-down, etc. Sign-up is in the store, either in person or by phone. Time slots will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. Aba has assured me that “tons of people will sign up” so let’s prove her right. Rio Story has bravely offered to open the show by leading us in song to “America the Beautiful”.  I’m expecting nothing less than a stirring rendition. Thank you Rio!

Should be a mighty fine time and can’t wait to see you there.
