February Luncheon

Clallam County Prosecutor

Mike Nichols

 



Date: Wednesday, February 14th


Time: 11:30 to 1:00/Check-in begins at 11:15


Location: Upstairs at the Red Lion Hotel



Cost for our luncheons has gone up! Sorry to say, that day has come (insert sad music). As we see costs rising everywhere, we have come to the decision that we too must raise the price of our luncheons. Historically, the Chamber has subsidized part of the cost of the luncheons because we believe in the value of these gatherings for our community, and we'll continue to do so. But with costs to us rising, we've reached the point that we must pass along some of that increase to our participants. We've kept these as low as we can, but the costs beginning this month are:

  • Member Online Advanced - $25
  • Member at the Door - $30
  • Non-Member - $30

Insurance Done Differently

According to the Harvard Business Review, 54% of job seekers considered better health, dental and vision insurance worthy of “heavy consideration” when evaluating job offers.

 

If you’re competing to attract and retain top talent, just making benefits available in not enough – employees need to regularly make use of their benefits and understand what is available to them.

Olympic Medical Center Foundation Happenings

Annual Heart Luncheon Scheduled for February 23rd at Field Arts & Events Hall



Not only is the event educational, providing valuable education on how to prevent heart disease, it has raised money to purchase life-saving equipment.

“One of the great thing about sponsoring this event is that it is a great opportunity for companies and organizations to send their female employees to the event, since the theme of the event is women’s health,” said Red, Set, Go Chair Karen Rogers.

Funds from the 2023 event went towards purchasing a mobile c-arm x-ray unit. The unit provides the support needed for new leadless pacemaker program.

Funds from the 2022 race and the Red, Set, Go luncheon went towards the purchase of cardiac software for OMC’s new CT Scan, which the Foundation also purchased. The software will enable OMC to conduct scans of the heart, which prior machines weren’t able to do.

Smoking increases the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Second Weekend Art Opening - Fractal World Explorations by Cory Ench

Sat. Feb. 10th from 5 to 8, with Live Music by Tin Sandwich

Sun. Feb. 11th from 12 to 3


Cory Ench is a visual artist who has lived and worked on the North Olympic Peninsula since the late 1980s. He has won many awards, and his work has been in numerous fine art shows. "I make art because it is a personal need to be creative in that way, and it has been an anchor in my life since I was very young," says Ench.


He holds a fine arts degree from Cornish Institute in Seattle. He did additional anatomy studies at the University of Washington's medical school to improve his understanding of classical figure painting.


His work includes numerous public art projects. Most familiar locally are the Kalakala ferry mural in downtown Port Angeles and the two-section Ennis Creek mural on Port Angeles City Pier.


He has also created murals for Olympic National Park and the Sequim Museum and Arts. He taught art classes at Peninsula College.


Ench has done posters for major festivals including Burning Man and Seattle Hempfest.


His illustration work received the Chesley Award for Best Book Cover Illustration (Magazine) 2007 and Artist Guest of Honor at two sci-fi conventions including NORWESCON 40 in Seattle.


Most of Ench's work has been paintings, drawings and sculptures inspired by natural forms and patterns. In the mid-1990s this led him into an extensive exploration of the possibilities of fractal art imagery.


His work demonstrates how fractal patterns are a universal expression in nature and the visible universe.


His pioneering "Fractal World Art Explorations" was included in two international exhibits. He was a juror for the Mandelbrot International Fractal Art Competition after winning that contest twice and being included in two European art exhibits.
