At Suncadia, you step out of urban life and into something that’s all too rare: a place where you know your neighbors instead of just passing them on the way to work. And as visits become longer and more frequent, you get to know the people who help shape Suncadia into a community you hold close to your heart. This column celebrates the Suncadia staff who play a role in the way residents and guests enjoy their time here. Some might be familiar faces or names, and others will be new to you. This week, we chat with Debbie Losse, Director of Catering & Conference Services.

Where are you from originally and how did you end up at Suncadia?

At Suncadia, we’ll take any excuse to celebrate, to bring families and friends together, and throw a good party. And so for the 4th of July, we put on our best reds, whites and blues and launched into festivities that lasted an entire week.

 

The celebration kicked off in downtown Cle Elum on June 30th with a community parade, a basketball tournament and fireworks. The next couple of days, Suncadia hosted a 5k race at Dawson Park, family-friendly guided hikes, a Battle of the Bands during our Swiftwater Concert Series, and a tie-dye session featuring everyone’s three favorite colors.

 

The big day arrived and so did the Kids Bike & Paws Parade. Some 35 kids went all out to decorate their bikes (and their dogs) with all the bells and whistles.

You know the Fifty-6 Degrees Lounge barman who makes your cocktail just the way you like it, and the concierge who always recommends exactly the kind of activity your kids will love.

How do you know when summer has arrived in Suncadia? When we host our annual Brews and Brats event, of course.

The day at Nelson Farm Pool started out ominously but dark clouds and a downpour quickly turned into a beautiful sunshiny day. You wouldn’t have known anything was amiss but mere moments before guests began to arrive, Suncadia’s amazing banquets team and hardworking managers hopped out from under cover just as the drizzle was ending to complete setup. Within half an hour the sun was out in full force and everything had dried out.

The sold-out event featured seven local craft breweries, with each bringing at least two different types of their beer, as well as tasty bites including bratwurst and hot dogs, mini pretzel bites, plus fruit

There was much to celebrate over the weekend as we welcomed 10 new families to the Suncadia community and debuted the brand new swimming pool at Nelson Farm!

  

On the morning of May 19th, we welcomed dozens of families eager to learn more about River Ridge, a new gated enclave in the heart of Nelson Preserve where the emerald forest and the Cle Elum River meet. Joining the six families who purchased at a previous River Ridge event, an additional 10 families selected their dream homesites, which feature some of the best views in the Preserve. With 16 families ready to build their homes—and only eight more homesites available in Phase 1—we are thrilled to see River Ridge grow into a tight-knit community where active pursuits and contemporary

It’s no accident that many homeowners’ happy memories of Suncadia are filled with sunshine. Located on the sunny eastern slopes of the commanding Cascades, Seattle’s backyard escape enjoys 200+ days of sunshine per year—significantly more than Seattle. And since it’s just 80 miles from the city, you don’t spend time getting here; you spend time being here.

If you’re considering buying a home in our mountain playground, add May 20th to your calendar. That Sunday we are hosting a special Home Tour event and showcasing a collection of open houses, each one entirely unique yet a perfect escape when the coastal rain feels endless. Home highlights include gourmet kitchens, elegant finishes throughout, generous indoor/outdoor spaces for entertaining
