Yelm Community Blog’s 11th anniversary today –
Thank you for your interest!

– Yelm Community Blog celebrates 11th anniversary today.
The Yelm Community Blog began coverage quietly on March 29, 2006, eleven years ago today, with this story still pertinent today:
“5000 pupils in Yelm Community Schools”
“Yelm Community Schools announced at the March 14, 2006 Chamber of Commerce Forum that they just enrolled their 5,000th pupil, which doubled their student numbers in 25 years. What they did not say is that student enrollments could double again in as little as 5 years with new housing developments approved by the Yelm City Council.”
[Editor’s note: The Thurston Highlands development of 5,000 homes went bankrupt in 2008, so Yelm Community Schools reports 5,500 pupils enrolled today.]

Editor’s note:
The Yelm Community Blog was begun at the insistence of a supporter to my 2005 Yelm mayoral campaign, who said I had garnered so much knowledge in the year that I ran for mayor, that to just walk away would be a travesty to the community. I heard this supporter’s message and with his encouragement, began this Blog.

As always, you can e-mail this blogger at info@yelm.com.

Thank you for your continued support.
