“For over 100 Years, Giving Back to the Community has Been an Integral Part of Timberland Bank”

“Tess Faughn is one of Timberland Bank’s employees who is well-known for performing a long list of selfless acts. Her everyday job as Branch Operations Supervisor at the Yelm branch keeps her plenty busy, but Faughn always prioritizes her free time to stay active throughout Thurston County volunteering at a number of local nonprofits. Some of her specific community involvement over the years include serving as the President for the Midday Yelm Lions Club, President of the Rotary Club of Yelm, Yelm Community Services Board Member and Hope Restored Christian Ministries Treasurer. No matter the role that she’s in, Faughn is always ready and willing to step up to make positive things happen,” by Kelsey Norvell, in Thurston Talk. Read more

“Yelm Librarian Has Been Helping Patrons Find What They Need for a Quarter Century”

“New York Native, Former City Councilor Mike McGowan Finds Joy in Helping Library Visitors”

The New York City native, now 63, has worked at the Yelm Timberland Library for 25 years, his current title of public services specialist allowing the gregarious man with the shoulder-length flowing white hair some latitude to shape his job as he envisions it.

“He spends much of his time creating and performing programs for children — his outreach often taking him to Yelm-area schools far and wide. When he’s not performing for kids, he’s often answering difficult questions as the Yelm branch’s reference librarian,” by Paul Dunn, Nisqually Valley News. Read more
