Peninsula College

Located in Port angeles with brances in Forks, Neah Bay, Port Townsend, and on a limited basis in Sequim, Peninsula Community Collegebegins it’s Fall quarter today. Currently they provide a two year degree program and technical program to those interested in pursuing an education. A four year degree program will be offered in 2007. I have the honor and privilege to teach for the PCC in the English as a Second Language department at the Sequim site. I will also be transistioning into ABE/GED this year. Lots of fun challenges. This is a picture of the clock tower on the recently completed Student Services building. Not very impressive by old school standards, but pretty darn nice for a young community college.

A Sure Sign of Fall

Here in Sequim, pumpkins of assorted sizes, shapes and colors are starting to show up in stores. I was particularly struck by the shade of these when I ran across them today at the local country store, Sunny Farms. Locals shop here for the freshest veggies, fruits, and meat. I like the way the people in the deli take care of me. Occasionally I will have quilters come and stay for a weekend. I call their sandwich orders in and then go and pick them up in about 30 minutes. My guests love them…no fuss, no muss. Their soups are excellent, also.
