(SULTAN, WA.) – The Sky Valley Arts Council has picked up a much needed $60,000 to support the group’s ongoing work to restore the historic Startup Gym into the ‘Startup Event Center’.

The gym is located in Startup, Washington a tiny sliver of a census-designated place (population about 700) sandwiched in between Sultan and Gold Bar in east Snohomish County.

The grant was applied for from the Snohomish County Historic Preservation Commission’s Community Heritage Program which supports projects that preserve and enhance Snohomish County history for residents.

When restored the Startup Event Center will offer arts related programs for the community and rent-able spaces in the building and outdoor areas.

To date that restoration has been ongoing with “generous volunteer hours, individual donations, business donations and grants,” according to a statement from the Arts Council. “With this most recent grant we can take on the large expenses related to the restoration and bring the building up to modern day expectations – we are aiming to open in mid August,” added the statement.

As the functionality of the building improves the council is taking great care to keep the historic ‘look & feel’ of the beautiful interior wood trim & floors, the stage arch and classic pane windows of the structure so it will be “a lasting community treasure.”

If you’d care to roll up your sleeves and pitch in to help, the work continues. Saturday work parties are from 10 am – 2 pm each week.

Donations are also (always) gratefully accepted: Contact Debbie Copple [425 238 2651] or you can make an online financial donation right here .

The Sky Valley Arts Council is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit arts organization supporting the arts and heritage activities in the Sky Valley area of Washington State.
