North Regional Office Holiday Closures:

The North Office will be closed on the following days:

December 21- January 2

The North Office pop-up store will be closed on Wednesday nights beginning 11/27 and reopening on 1/15/14.

Inclement Weather Closures:  

The north region is often the center of the convergence zone which means on some days it can be sunny in one corner of our region and a winter blast in another.  Our Marysville office covers 5 counties and our staff lives throughout the region. We may close the office or have limited staff when weather affects the safety of travel to the office.

Our phone system is now connected to our laptop computers so we are accessible by phone or email if power is available for an internet connection.  We will make every attempt to plan in advance and make calls or email to reschedule meetings or events due to weather. Please contact us at (360)658-8083 with questions.
