We launched our project by writing a “love letter” to Yakima back in 2012. We were fortunate to have Paper Hammer at Mighty Tieton design the broadside, now available to hang on your wall. Go ahead and write your own love letter!
I love Yakima because we are an immigrant strong community. Our farm workers have placed Yakima on the map and our city has become world-renowned for our apples and cherries. Let us never forget our community is stronger when we are inclusive and supportive of all our neighbors.

My husband LOVES Yakima. He moved here from the tri-cities as a young adult to manage a grocery store, now URM. Given a choice of Yakima or Eugene, he quickly chose Yakima for it's warm sunny weather, perfect for riding motorcycle. He quickly fell in love with the city. In the early years of our marriage I tried to convince him to move to a location with more summer, less winter, and closer water. I thought I nearly had him convinced to move to Redding, CA, but came to realize he would never move. He loves the people, the seasons, the mountains, the population size & all the locally owned businesses. I can't think of anything he doesn't love about Yakima. My husband would be honored and proud to be a part of this project. His name is Morris Mack.

I love Yakima, I've lived here most of my life except a few years during my first marriage. It's the perfect place to be, near forest, lakes, rivers and even close enough to go to the ocean. I love the fact that it's a beautiful city for the most part and it continues to grow.

We are a church that loves our city. In fact, our intent as a church is to make the advancement of Yakima our focus. We have several ministries already launched (we are a fairly new churched) that are successfully blessing and helping our city. We support McClure Elementary and have developed a dynamic relationship with them, and we also have a thriving ministry to the homeless. We love Yakima, and we believe in our city, and we are committed to it with all of our hearts!

I love walking downtown! A pastry and latte from Essencia, a browse through cool places in historic buildings and the "Executive Lunch Special" at Santiago's are a few of my faves. If you haven't looked around downtown lately, check it out!
