Students and Volunteers Come Together to Beautify Port Angeles

Our community now has a beautifully decorated chain link fence on East Front St. across from Kokopelli Grill thanks to the talents of Revitalize Port Angeles, Leslie Robertson, local artists Gianna Andrews and Chuck Rondeau, and 12 child artists from Franklin Elementary School MAC community service enrichment clusters. MAC stands for Multi-Age Clusters, where groups of students from all ages get together to perform community service projects.

The children first took a field trip to the fence to check out the location and visualize their future display. They then spent four days in the classroom painting different shapes cut from plywood donated by Angeles Millwork & Lumber Co. Inc.  The shapes where made up of rectangles, eagles, bears and starfish. Local artists Gianna Andrews and Chuck Rondeau volunteered their time in  the Franklin Elementary classroom to help them paint the shapes and achieve their final artistic vision.

On the final day of the project, the children took another field trip to the fence for the installation of their art. Several community volunteers also met them there to assist. The kids were excited to see their pieces prominently displayed where so many community members will be able to view them.

We would like to thank Revitalize Port Angeles’ Leslie Robertson for allowing us to be a part of such a great improvement project in our community. The children of Franklin Elementary School did an absolutely amazing job in the creation of the pieces that will welcome visitors and residents alike as they make their way into town.

Revitalize Port Angeles is a grass roots volunteer organization that works to improve Port Angeles through beautification projects, clean-ups, community service events, and promoting a positive image of Port Angeles.

Washington Lt. Governor Meets with Lumber Traders CEO

Washington’s Lt. Governor Cyrus Habib met with Lumber Traders CEO Kelly Fox while visiting Port Angeles on Wednesday in an effort to promote regional job growth.

The Lt. Governor and Kelly discussed the culture of employee ownership in our stores and how this plays into work force development. Rebecca Wells from Contractor Sales at Angeles Millwork joined the conversation and discussed her recent training opportunities. She has attended an estimating workshop and will be attending an upcoming door college and the Women in Lumber Leadership Conference in November with Retail Sales Professional Karie Jewart from Hartnagels.

Also discussed was the development of employees internally with the skills that can be utilized at Angeles Millwork and Hartnagels. They talked about the challenges of our workforce, regulations in the building trades and possible solutions for these needs.  The final take away from the conversation with the Lt. Governor was how we can work with the community at large to assist in offering employment opportunities to those that want to make a change in life.  This led to a discussion about hiring those with a criminal background and how businesses can assist our community by helping this population get back on solid ground.

Thank you Lt. Governor Habib for taking the time out of your busy schedule to listen and discuss issues important to our local and state communities!

Donate a Stud and Support Volunteers in Medicine of the Olympics (VIMO)

We’d like to make a call out to our customers, clients and neighbors to help with our new “Donate a Stud” campaign for VIMO!

Volunteers in Medicine of the Olympics, or (VIMO) for short, is a free clinic primarily serving low-income, veterans and homeless patients living in Clallam and Jefferson counties.  VIMO has medical, behavioral health and dental facilities housed in a crowded building in Port Angeles, WA and currently treat the growing population of under and uninsured patients that typically rely on Olympic Medical Center’s emergency room.

We at Angles Millwork & Lumber Co and Hartnagel Building Supply are committed to putting our efforts in supporting the growth of grassroots non-profits.  VIMO is a perfect example of the great services that can be accomplished when caring industry professionals and community volunteers give back to their community.  With your help, VIMO will move crowded administrative offices currently held in an exam room and overflowing behavioral health facilities to a new building allowing much needed space to serve additional patients and increase the resources to the underserved in our community.

Learn more about VIMO at their website HERE

So how can you Help?

By purchasing a “stud” at either of our stores for just $5 each.  Our goal is to raise $10,000 and fund a large majority of the new VIMO building’s costs. Donators will be featured on an in store display, on our website and on our social media postings.

Call or visit us today to donate:

  • 1 Stud = $5
  • 5 Studs = $25
  • 10 Studs = $50
  • 20 Studs = $100

“The choice was quite easy,” says Kelly Fox, CEO. “Besides the substantial energy savings and a brighter store, we are also reducing labor by not replacing bulbs every year. APS made the switch about as hassle-free as it could get.”
