Festival Grand Marshalls
2017 Festival at Mt Si Announces Grand Parade Marshall, Pat Cokewell
The 2017 Festival at Mount Si has a very special Grand Marshall for
its annual festival parade, Pat Cokewell, 88, a near 50-year
resident, who has seen the festival in
all its versions, as well as watch North
Bend turn from logging town to Twin Peaks destination to its modern
home of outdoor enthusiasts and
young families, all the while being a cornerstone of service to the
Her favorite memory is hosting a steak dinner at her Mar-T Cafe for
the Mount Si High School Basketball
team the night they won the state championship. "What a night!" she
said with a big smile. For over
twenty years the corner of Bendigo and North Bend Way was where
Cokewell had the view of North
Bend grow from a town of barely 1,000 people to its current size of
more than 7,000 residents.
"One of the most fun things we did was having the fundraiser Pancake
Breakfasts at the Mar-T," she said. "There were many and it was
always enjoyable to see community members working such as Dr. Jim
Browning cooking, Maisie Davis waitressing, George Wyrsch doing
dishes, and so on."
Since she retired at age 80 in 2009, she has been helping Senior
Services by driving people to the doctor.
"This is a much-needed service," she said. Cokewell added that she
hopes she can continue to be of service to this great community well
into her ninth decade.
Some of her gifts to the community include being an activity
supporter at Mount Si High School, working with the North Bend
Chamber of Commerce, serving in the Mount Si Business and
organization, agreeing to offer her business the Mar-T Cafe to the
famed Twin Peaks television series, and catering three meals a day
at Washington State Fire Training Academy. She even was presented
the key to the city of North Bend in 1997.
Si View and The Festival at Mount Si are honored to have such a
local legend as the 2017 Festival at Mount Si Parade Grand Marshall.
