Shin returns

George Shin has returned to Enumclaw following a four-year absence, ready to train students how to live a balanced and healthy life through exercise, nutrition and karate.

Shin notes that his family-oriented approach promotes health “from the inside out.” Experienced instructors focus on longevity, life-changing nutritional information, proper exercise techniques, body mechanics and traditional Okinowain karate. The goal is to promote health, sportsmanship, respect, friendship and integrity.

New event venue

Darrel Dickson and his wife Dr. Holly Dickson have purchased the vacated building near the corner of Farman Road and state Route 410 and spent the past year remodeling the space into an event center called The Claw of Enumclaw.

This building has been in Enumclaw for generations, formerly known as The High Climber, CJ Coasters, Pard’s Place, Roadhouse and most recently the Crystal Bistro.

The renovated building is being leased as a private venue. It has a full service restaurant in back – Big Daddy’s BBQ – that can also offer catering. The larger rooms up front are designed for events like awards ceremonies, fundraisers, parties, reunions, weddings, banquets, corporate meetings and more. The venue has a large bar, dance floor, sound system, large projector TV, tables, chairs, and linens.
