Things are busy here at EDASC.  First, we are getting ready for our third annual Investor Appreciation Celebration, Monday November 5 at 5:30 at the Museum of Northwest Art in La Conner.  If you are an EDASC Investor at whatever level, please go to our website and register (at no cost) right away!  The link can also be found here.  We look forward to hosting you for a fun evening of networking and talking about the successes enabled by your investments!

Also coming up very soon: the 2019 Skagit Business Guide, including the EDASC Investor Directory.  Please be on the lookout for the letter asking you to advertise in the Guide, produced by Skagit Publishing (content by EDASC and you!).  This is a great opportunity to highlight your business or organization with content you develop – get out your message, attract customers or job applicants, or simply make your company better known in the area among over 2000 readers plus countless more on the EDASC website!

EDASC is very proud to announce the newest Skagit County company (and newest EDASC investor), LAVLE USA, a joint venture focusing on electric technology for marine vessels, now headquartered in Anacortes.  There is a full article in this month’s edition of Skagit Insight.  We are working on a host of potential new businesses and projects, as well as efforts on behalf of existing businesses in the process of potential expansions here in Skagit County.  In addition, work on STEM, workforce, and housing issues occupies a good deal of EDASC’s bandwidth.

On a very personal note, I want to thank those of you who have reached out with messages of solidarity, support and love in the wake of the horrific synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh.  I just attended a vigil at Temple De Hirsch Sinai in Seattle where Governor Inslee offered inspiring, challenging, and amazingly supportive thoughts also.  Part of making our community a better place to live is making sure all are welcome and all are secure.  We are all responsible for that, and for one another.  These tears must give way to hope, and action.  Your friendship means more than you can imagine.

- John Sternlicht, CEO
