A new addition to the bus stop across the street from the Ixtapa restaurant is this brightly painted cigarette "butt bucket," courtesy of Duvall's "Trash Hero" Helen Hoenig, as part of her continued efforts to keep the Duvall area clean. Cigarette butts leach thousands of chemicals, she says, so it is important to keep them out of the landscape. A young group of volunteers decorated the little bucket, which is full of fresh sand, with flowers and a rural scene.
2017 is the anniversary of the United States entrance into the “Great War,” World War I. In commemoration, the Duvall Historical Society (with support from King County Library and 4Culture) will present a Readers’ Theater presentation on how the Snoqualmie Valley contributed to the War effort and how the War impacted our community. We will take a look at the "Great War" and how it affected people differently, depending on their situations and viewpoints. A powerpoint presentation will accompany readers who will be playing different roles. A discussion will follow.
Join us on Monday, October 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Duvall Visitor Center, 15619 Main St., Duvall. The public is invited.

Local farmstead creamery, Cherry Valley Dairy, is celebrating two big awards from the American Cheese Society National Conference for their famous grass-fed butters. Their Unsalted Cultured Butter took home second place and a third place honor was given to the Coffee Butter - made with Duvall roaster, Anchorhead Coffee beans.
The American Cheese Society Competition occurs every summer and this year attracted over two thousand cheese and dairy product entries from the US, Canada, Mexico and Columbia. Head Cheesemaker, Blain Hages followed the award ceremony online via live stream, "I'm really proud of our butters and it is such a rush to hear your name called for these prizes - even over the internet."
This is the second year in a row that these butters have taken home big prizes. The butter is cultured in the traditional European style and is known for its incredible flavor. The dairy's grass-fed Jersey cream provides signature deep-yellow color and heart healthy Omega-3s.
