RACE STARTS 11:00am, May 22, 2016!
The Jefferson Healthcare Rhody Run will be celebrating its 38th year in 2016 and is one of the Northwest’s best-loved races. Although we’ve grown a lot since the first Rhody Run in 1979, this race is still very much a community event. From the hundreds of volunteers who help out as race officials to the throngs of local residents who line the streets to cheer on every runner, we are both proud of and humbled by the enthusiastic community support that we receive year after year. Without this support the Jefferson Healthcare Rhody Run would be impossible.

Marine Science Center – Port Townsend
OUR MISSION: INSPIRING CONSERVATION OF THE SALISH SEA
Marine Science Center – Port Townsend. The Port Townsend Marine Science Center (PTMSC) is an educational and scientific organization devoted to understanding and conserving our marine and shoreline environment.
Through its various programs, the Port Townsend Marine Science Center:
- Teaches respect for and stewardship of the myriad life forms in that environment;
- Creates active and involving educational experiences for groups, with a particular emphasis on youth;
- Provides exhibits, programs, and publications featuring local marine and shoreline habitat, history, flora, and fauna;
- Encourages meaningful volunteer experiences in PTMSC activities;
- Provides citizen science opportunities for the general public;
- Partners and cooperates with other organizations dedicated to the conservation of Puget Sound and the NW Straits;
- Encourages understanding of and participation in local, national, and international decisions impacting the marine and shoreline environment.
The Port Townsend Marine Science Center was founded in 1982 by two teachers and was initially run entirely by volunteers. Over the years the science center has continued to grow in a steady, thoughtful manner, and its volunteers, now numbering more than 100, are still integrally involved in the organization. Throughout its development, PTMSC has remained committed to its mission of inspring conservation of the Salish Sea.
Judy was a founder of the Port Townsend Marine Science Center back in 1982. Judy has had many roles at PTMSC over the years, including designing and coordinating many of our education programs for students and teachers.
Judy loves the challenge of creating experiences that make scientific information clear, accessible and interesting to everyone.
Libby was a founder of the Port Townsend Marine Science Center in 1982 along with Judy D’Amore. She has served the Center in many ways over the years including researching, designing, and creating the original contents for the Natural History Exhibit, developing and conducting teacher training workshops (Onshore/Offshore), developing and teaching the first day camps, and managing the Orca Project (with Chrissy McLean and Heather Jones).

First Tuesday Salon, Carol
“American-born English playwright Phyllis Nagy wrote the first draft of the script in 1996. Almost 20 years and many drafts later, we have Todd Haynes’ immaculate, dream-like Carol–in which Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara take us inside a passionate story of desire and retribution that’s both satisfying and disturbing.” Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald. Read more HERE.
Join us for a conversation with poet and professor Kate Reavey, following the screening. Kate’s work as a poet has taken her around the world, with a fellowship to study in Florence as she pursues her doctorate in literature. Her work at Peninsula College helps other poets find and refine their voices.
The film, Carol, is based on the novel, The Price of Salt. Author Patricia Highsmith became well known for her “poison pen” with disdain for Jews, blacks and homosexuals. The novel was written in her early career, and thought to be autobiographical.

When travelling to Port Townsend it is easy to be overwhelmed by restaurant choices. For Japanese food my pick is Ichikawa. My personal favorites are the daily Bento box or Chef’s choice combos (always good and allows me to try something new). There are options for the no-raw-fish eaters as well, their tempura udon is very good. You don’t have to take my word for it, check out the reviews on Yelp or Tripadvisor. They are located downtown, across from the Port Townsend Ferry Dock. This is a smaller establishment and can get very busy on the weekends, I recommend making a reservation. If you are with a group of 8 or more, reserving the Tatami room is fun and a little more private.
Does is seem like everyone is planning a tropical or exotic getaway? Wouldn’t you like to have a little getaway of your own? You can… and without blowing your whole budget. There is beauty right here in your own backyard. There are miles of beaches to walk and regain your mental balance and sense of calm (that frankly, I think we could all use right about now). If you need to warm up try something spicy or exotic at Khu Larb Thai or Hanazono Asian Noodle. If you enjoy tea, Pippa’s is a friendly place to visit. They have so many different blends you are almost certain to find one you like…make mine the Jasmine Green!
With a little under two weeks until Labor Day weekend it is a great time to get over to Port Townsend to enjoy the last of the summer weather. The dahlias are blooming and just strolling through the Uptown neighborhood can offer some lovely views of water, gardens and Victorian homes. The weather this time of year is perfect for a weekend getaway… so why not plan one?
The Port Townsend Marine Science Center is celebrating 30 years! Located out on the pier at Fort Worden State Park, it is a cool place to visit. It’s not just for kids either. The goal is to encourage people to get involved in making decisions that impact local, national and international marine and shoreline environments. The center itself has its own blog page and offers exhibits showing local marine and shoreline habitats. It is a chance to see what’s below the water… without the risk of hypothermia. A Discover Pass is not required to see the Marine Science Center, make sure to get a temporary to put in your car, but they are encouraged.
Many people coming to Port Townsend are seeking peace and solace from everyday hustle and bustle. The Madrona MindBody Institute is committed to helping you find that passion for life, energy and confidence. Madrona is located at Fort Worden State Park. They offer workshops, retreats and massage. Their classes include Yoga, Meditation and Tai Chi, along with many others. With classes starting at $8 it is good time to see what they have to offer. Also check them out on facebook!
