Manson Community Council is the entity that is (supposed to be) our VOICE with the Chelan County Commissioners. This system works very well, but only if we are truly ALL represented. In an unincorporated community it is our RESPONSIBILITY to make this system function properly. Currently, the MCC has had an OPEN seat for the entire last year. PLEASE, consider supporting their VERY IMPORTANT EFFORTS that affect us all by sitting at the table with them to represent the citizens of Manson. THEN, VOTE. Woohoo! We are almost done with the 2012 election season, but not quite. Your vote counts! Here's how you can take part:
· Petitions for those interested in running are available NOW, at the Lake Chelan Reclamation office in Manson at 80 West Wapato Way. Call them at (509) 687-3548 for office hours or stop on by!

· Candidate must be a registered voter in the Manson precincts.

· Completed petition for MCC board candidate must have the signatures of (ONLY) 10 other registered voters from Manson precincts.

· Completed petition must be submitted to the current Secretary, Jama England, no later than 10 days prior to election; 12/1/2012. You can contact her at for more information.

· VOTE: 12/11/12 - MCC bylaws state the election day as the 2nd Tuesday in December. Location details should be released soon.

THEN the election season will be over. J

Manson Business Owners - Please show off the friendliness and welcoming attitude of our community, not only to visitors, but to locals as well. Join in the Holiday Spirit and DECORATE! Woohoo! Throw a snowball and share a smile while you're out there!

Whew! Seems like things should be slowing down; "off season," snow, holidays, and all. BUT, they're not! What a wonderful season to share with friends and family. Don't stay inside! Get out and see the joy and fun right here in Manson, see Christmas in the Village, and bring your family!

Happy Holidays, Everyone!!!

Wishing you peace and joy,
