Congratulations Commissioner Allan Erickson

Congratulations Commissioner Allan Erickson!

The newly appointed Commissioner Allan Erickson officially joined the Port of Longview Board of Commissioners after Bob Bagaason vacated his seat. Cowlitz County District Court Judge John Hays presented over the swearing in of Erickson, who represented the Commission’s 3rd District.

  "I am honored to help guide port leadership as we build on the momentum of recent successes," Erickson said in the release. "One of my goals as commissioner is to work toward building more family-wage jobs for the citizens of the port district."

Erickson is a lifelong local resident. He worked in the printing industry for more than 40 years before his retirement and actively participates in local community organizations. Erickson earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Washington.

'Star of Wonder' PeaceHealth St John Medical Center Foundation Gala 2018

Every year PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center Foundation hosts a Gala that is fit for royalty.  This year was no different with their themed ‘Star of Wonder’ Gala.  The Expo Center was decked out in such beautiful simplicity that you felt as if you had been transformed to a wonderland with help from Three Rivers Audio Visual. They had a record breaking year that sold out every seat to top 450 guests… the largest event the Expo Center has ever hosted! The event started with their silent auction, flowed into a live auction at dinner catered by Summerland Catering, rounded out with the ever-amazing raffle item presented by Gallery of Diamonds and ended with a the rip roaring Claudia Knauer and the Jumptown Big Band.

This year the gala raised money to benefit our Cardiology Program at PeaceHealth St John Medical Center. The St John cardiology dept has grown to six staff cardiologists and one nurse practioner since 2010. Their clinic volumes have increased, their cath labs are busy, and the door to balloon time is record breaking.  They are proud and thrilled to share in the success with their community that has helped this program grow.

And what a success the gala was for the Cardiology Program!  Raising a record breaking $235K they stated, “We're grateful, thankful, delighted, and awed by the outpouring of community support for our cardiac services at the "Star of Wonder" fundraising gala. The gorgeous room was filled to capacity with generosity and love, and the PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center Foundation is in "wonder" at the $235k raised to enhance cardiac care for us all!’

I’m so excited to see how they will top it next year… if that’s possible! 

A huge applause to the many key participants that made this happen – Cathy Barr and her Staff at the Foundation: Tara Haas, Alaina Hartley & Candace Hickey, Cherelle Montanye – Chief Administrative Officer of PeaceHealth St John Medical Center and Patricia J.
