The Powerhouses Behind Ellensburg

Saying the Ellensburg Downtown Association is a huge deal is an understatement. Three powerful ladies, Carolyn Honeycutt, Moly Jones, and Faith Mehal, handle 240 different local businesses.

So what does it mean to work with 240 different local business? Well, these three ladies are a non-profit and they work to revitalize and preserve the quaint downtown Ellensburg. Their main focuses is design, organization, economic reconstructing, and promotion. 

                           
Right now, EDA is promoting a Pint Night, a night where non-profit organizations can raise money for a specific cause. Pint Night is of course held at none other that The Iron Horse Brewery. During Pint Night, Iron Horse Brewery will donate $0.50 for every pint sold and it is also encouraged to have other revenue generating activities.

Gives you an excuse to go get a pint of Irish Death!

                                                                                      
Do you like to bike? EDA is also currently promoting a Like to Bike festival that will be held this Saturday, May 20. The festival includes a vintage bike show, a bike part swap meet, a bike “rodeo”, and an opportunity to fix a flat!                

This is such a small portion of what The Ellensburg Downtown Association ladies do. The staff is small, so they rely on community volunteers, and us–Central Communication Agency! 

For Central Communication Agency, we try and take a load off of our favorite ladies. This quarter we have helped them promote events at our Student Union and Recreation Center, build a website for a local business that previously lacked one, and create press releases.

                                            
Throughout the years, EDA has won many excellence awards and it truly shows through their work. Historic downtown Ellensburg is truly my favorite part of our little town, and it is nice that there is a non-profit organization that cherishes downtown as well.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I am currently a senior at Central Washington University and am majoring in Public Relations. I moved to Los Angeles very recently and plan to finish my college education online. Los Angeles is considered the city of dreams--it very much is. As I look around on my way to work, I see inspiration everywhere. I want to use that inspiration to make my life and career goals a reality. In this crazy world today, I like to track my thoughts and opinions through this blog. Often times my blog posts will seem random; other times, my blog posts will seem very timely. Enjoy!
