Board Meeting, Monday, March 30


Just a reminder, our NQC board meeting will start at 10 a.m. Monday in Sedro Woolley, 100 West State Street, Suite C.

For directions it is easiest to take Hwy 20 exit off I-5 (Burlington/Anacortes) this is the Haggen store exit.  Head toward Burlington and at the light by the shell station turn left onto Burlington Blvd. Stay in the right lane and there will be a right turn only lane come up in about three or so blocks with a sign saying North Cascade Hwy, it may say Sedro Woolley as well. Any way you are taking Hwy 20 East.  Just before you get to Sedro Woolley proper you will take a right on W State Street.  You will pass McDonald’s on your left and some bright yellow buildings on your right.  There is a shell station on the left at that corner, there is a sign, and it has a light.  When you turn right onto W. State St you will cross the RR tracks and shortly hit a light which says hwy 9.  Continue on W. State Street about one block further.  There will be a small market on your right, then a large lumber yard.  Turn into the parking lot of the Iron Skillet which is across the street from the lumber yard and our office is in that parking lot in the little complex next to the Iron Skillet. Last office before the RR tracks.  If you cross the RR tracks you have gone to far.  There is now a lovely metal bookdrop in front of the office so you will know you are in the right spot.

Directions to the Hearthfire Restaurant for Board Meeting December 8th 10:30am
I’ve tried to give the routes with the least turns, etc. not necessarily the shortest.

From the North: Take exit 256 (Meridian/Bellis Fair). At the stoplight turn right on to Meridian. Go to 2nd stoplight and turn right (Squalicum Parkway). Travel on Squalicum about 2 miles. Near the waterfront the street veers left and becomes Roeder Avenue. At the 1st stop light turn right on to Bellweather Way. At the stop sign, turn right. The restaurant is on the right but very discretely marked, sort of at the end, on a circular drive. Parking is in that lot or underground nearby.

On your return North to I-5, you can go the way you came or to hit a nice quilt shop, turn right on Roeder Avenue to the 1st light. Turn left on F Street to Girard St. and turn left again (2nd light I think). Girard turns into Northwest; continue on Northwest to Birchwood (just after a little bridge) and turn right. Fabric Expressions is at the end of the little mall on the right. Continue north on Northwest to get to the Freeway.

From the South: Take exit 253 (Lakeway). Keep to the right and turn onto Lakeway at the light. Go under the freeway and at the next light. the street veers a little right and becomes Holly Street. Follow Holly through downtown to F Street. (The middle lane works best) Turn left onto F Street and then turn right at the light just after the railroad tracks. At the 1st stop light turn left on to Bellweather Way. At the stop sign, turn right. The restaurant is on the right but very discretely marked, sort of at the end, on a circular drive. Parking is in that lot or underground nearby.

The restaurant is not officially open until 11:30am so someone may call 527-3473 at the door to be let in. We have a private room down, around to the right.

To get back to freeway, conveniently, via a quilt shop (4th Corner Quilts is closed)
Lakeway and Holly are one-way streets so the best route back to I-5 is to take F Street to Cornwall (5th stop light) and turn right. At Ohio Street (1st stop light), go a tad farther and Two Thimbles Quilt Shop is in the little strip mall on your right at the far end. Or take a left at Ohio for about 5 blocks and enter the freeway.

Meeting Saturday, Nov. 1st


Remember we are at a new location and please note:

The manager at WECU asked me to remind/tell everyone who will be attending NQC this Saturday to PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE FIRST TWO ROWS CLOSEST TO THE BANK.  The reason being that the ATM is busy and customers use the first two rows.


See you there.
