Mt St Helens Creation Center Closure and Opportunities

Covid19 and the Creation Center.

The Mount St Helens Creation Center does not come under the terms of ban on certain retail openings, by Governor Inslee of Washington state. Therefore, we will be open - but intermittently. This is because my wife's business - a small sandwich cafe - has to move to take-out and delivery only, and I will need to be the delivery service. Please check our Facebook page for up-to-date information on last-minute changes to our opening.

COVID - 19 Update from the CEDC

Today I participated in a teleconference with the Department of Commerce, Association of Washington Business (AWB), and Employment Security Department (ESD) about economic relief and recovery efforts related to COVID-19. As we all know, this is an unprecedented and constantly evolving situation. I wanted to share with you some items of particular interest that were communicated.  In addition there will be a conference call with my state association this afternoon, if anything new comes out of that meeting, I will be in touch.
