Shout Out!

Shout Out

"I read this great article in the Everett Herald about fellow Chamber member, Uncle Peteza's Pizzeria. I am glad I read it and love the idea of a small community event and thought other members would too." View Article 

Submitted by Holly Williams, Dynamic Strategies Inc.

"Shout out to Richard Olson at OlsonDesign for doing an outstanding job repairing a gold necklace I have worn daily for over 30 years --- and for replacing a baguette diamond I lost from one of my favorite rings. The pieces looked as good as new --- and the work was done in only a few days! Even better, he offered to take the unrepairable gold from the chain and use it as credit towards the cost of the repairs. I would highly recommend his outstanding work!"
