– Editor’s Note:
I wanted to publicly acknowledge former Nisqually Valley News (NVN) Advertising Manager Angie Evans for the years of committed service she has provided to this community in her positions with the newspaper. She left last Friday to become the new Manager at the Prairie Hotel. No matter the Publishers’, Editors’, and reporters’ points of view about Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE) and/or me, Angie was always a refreshing oasis of respect, hospitality and courteousness at the NVN, as she always was on a platform above their enmity. She earned and deserves my respect and that of our community. The newspaper will be challenged to replace her 15 years of cheerful persuasion in selling advertising and the resulting revenue. I look forward to Angie’s continued contributions as one of Yelm’s Ambassadors of Goodwill and for guests at the Prairie Hotel, plus in her current role as President of the Yelm Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
Angie Evans Facebook post –
“[Friday, May 25] was my last day at the Nisqually Valley Vews…I started in 2003 and the experiences I’ve had, the people I’ve met and the incredible forever friends I have made will always be a part of Me…but through it all I have learned change is good…so my journey takes me to the Prairie Hotel, where I will be the new manager. So excited to learn new things, meet new people and make new friends…”
My posted comment on her Facebook announcement –
“You have been a shining beacon of strength with your smile and great attitude, always treating people with kindness and being a committed listener. Your steadfastness was persistent though many changes at the NVN, and will be missed there, Angie. I add my thanks, appreciation and Congratulations – You have my respect and best wishes in your new adventure!”
