Port Angeles: Masons dedicate skills center cornerstone

Clallam County business operators, community leaders and educators joined members of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Washington on Sunday to dedicate the cornerstone for the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center/Business Incubator/Peninsula College Training Center.

“There’s a future coming for Clallam County that we haven’t had for many, many years,” Rep. Jim Buck, R-Joyce, told more than 100 attending the ceremony at the complex, which is nearing completion at Eighth and B streets.

“It all comes together with training at the skills center,” said Buck, adding that he believes the facility will help keep “local talent” from becoming “our biggest import.”

The $8 million complex has been lauded by local and state leaders as a model of economic development, business and education that bridges the gap between education and the business community.
