LeeRoy Parcel,
Dear ,


As we make our way through the winter months, the season is slowly turning to spring. As spring approaches, flowers begin to bloom and trees start to turn green. Things that have been dormant begin to come to life with warmer temperatures and more sunshine. Change is happening all around us.  


Change is coming to Cascade Title of Cowlitz County. Manager Joel Lengyel is moving to our Walla Walla County office. Long time Cascade Title employee LeeRoy Parcel (that's me) has been promoted to the position of manager of Cascade Title of Cowlitz County.  


I began my career in the title industry in 1979 and have worked for the Schreiner Group of title companies since 1989. Besides being a title officer, I am also an LPO.   I will continue my title and escrow work along with my duties as manager. I am excited by this opportunity and have a very supportive staff to work with. In the escrow department we have LPOs Alison Peters and Bonnie Woodruff. Assisting them is the cheerful Diane Kenneway. This dynamic trio strives to get your escrow transaction closed in a timely and professional manner.   In the title department we have long time Title Officer Dennis Bird. Dennis brings very solid knowledge about title issues in Cowlitz County. Providing support for all are Lindsey McTimmonds and Connie Bjornstrom. Lindsey is responsible for getting documents recorded at the county and is also instrumental in marketing Cascade Title. Connie, as receptionist, is usually the voice you will hear when you call Cascade Title. She is also responsible for getting our preliminary title reports and policies out.   With the great staff we have, Cascade Title is positioned to provide our customers with outstanding service for your title and escrow needs.

Thanks for your business,

LeeRoy Parcel
