Team behind new community stage honored as Art Advocates

The Arlington Arts Council will honor the people who built a new stage in Legion Park at this year’s Fall into Art Auction on Oct. 20. The team that built the stage will be named as the 2018 Art Advocates of Arlington.

The project was initiated by local musicians Johnny Green and Darren Massingale. Most of the work was done with donated time and materials, but the city also pitched in by applying for and receiving a $12,000 tourism grant.

Donations came from the Downtown Arlington Business Association, Stilly Diner, Action Sports, Unique Interiors, Olympic Escrow and Arlington Arts Council.

The team of carpenters included musician Pete Frothingham of The Folsoms, Skookum brewery founder Ron Walsher and distiller Dave McGlothern. Assistance was provide by Craig Christianson, Keith Faller and Kristina Faller, Dave Branscome and Wayne Radder, along with others who stopped by and helped out.

Electrical work was done by Craig Holt, Kenny Mayfield and Darik Green.

The concrete foundation and dance floor were installed by Spencer Cave, of Bayshore Concrete, with help from Jim Boone, Kenny Alvers, Cliff Wilson, Jesse Walker, Bruce Aalmo, Lauren Aalmo and Logan Harding.

Materials and equipment were donated in part by Smokey Point Concrete, Arlington Hardware, Rex’s Rentals, Brian Hendry, Island Masonry, CNB Iron Works, Ralph’s Concrete Pumping and Ahern Rentals.

The public is welcome to attend the Fall into Art Auction, to be held Oct. 20 at Gleneagle Country Club. The major fundraiser includes two silent auctions, a live auction, dinner and dessert dash. Tickets are $40, available at Flowers by George, 355 N. Olympic Ave., or call AAC Treasurer Jean Olson at 360-435-5866.
