PATEROS – Some two dozen community members gathered at the new law offices of Thomason Law & Justice at 110 W. Lakeshore Drive in Pateros last Thursday, March 2, for the Chamber of Commerce’s second monthly Business After Hours event.
Chamber president, Libby Harrison, welcomed visitors, encouraged attendees to consider joining the Pateros Chamber and introduced the evening’s host, attorney Alex Thomason.
Following a brief introduction, wherein he explained his decision to relocate from Seattle back to the Brewster-Pateros area, Thomason took the occasion to announce that his office plans to host a regular gathering of local talent and persons of interest later this summer.
Thomason said plans call for construction of a patio addition to his building where citizens will be encouraged to gather every other Friday evening to listen to local artists, craftsmen and others describe what they do and share stories.
“We will discuss, how do you paint; how do you sculpt; how do you carve wood,” said Thomason. He also hopes to have World War II veterans and others with interesting stories to share participate in the sessions.
Thomason said the planned gatherings are his “mission for the summer.”
“We want to create a place of culture with no agenda, no money, no nothing other than come here and meet people…because our lives matter just as much as they would in some big city,” Thomason said.
April’s Business After Hours host, location and date will be announced later this month.
