“Editor’s Best Bet: Yelm Jazz Festival, 3-9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5
“‘The Jazz Festival is an idea long overdue,’ said Yelm Mayor JW Foster. ‘We are pleased to partner with local businesses to bring this kind of family entertainment to our city. Yelm is a wonderful place to visit and we’re happy to share what we have with others, while creating entertainment opportunities for our own residents at the same time. It’s going to be an enjoyable evening — a perfect way to end a summer day on the prairie,'” quoting the Nisqually Valley News.
