Chamber Awards Banquet winners and highlights

By Victoria Walker
The Walter Clore Center was a sold-out event last Monday night.  The evening was fun, fast and filled with laughter and gratitude for a number of Prosser's community members. 
The community awards banquet recognizes Prosser's citizens who have contributed time, energy and talent to enriching the Prosser community.  With that, there was also the auction portion of the evening, which serves as a fundraiser for the Chamber of Commerce.
Humberto Rodriguez, Executive Director of Chamber of Commerce, started the evening with a welcome, then there was a toast to past award winners, given by Mayor, Paul Warden,  after which the event took off.  Laughter was plentiful, fun was on the menu and money flowed throughout the evening.

Matthew J. Rasey is a licensed massage practitioner and Reiki Master in Prosser.  Rasey is most recently from Columbus, Ohio where he was degreed in Computer Information Technology.  But after 20 years in the computer business, a recession and some life changes, Rasey decided to take another path and considered what it would take to be happy.  With that, he began studying massage and Reiki for a living at the American Institute of Alternative Medicine.
"My goal is helping and teaching people," says Rasey.
Rasey has come back to Prosser after some years away.  "My father, James Rasey, owns a massage clinic and focuses his work on wellness massage," said Rasey.  James has been in Prosser 20 years and does medical massage work. 
Comments sought on Prosser's shoreline plan

Prosser A program to manage about four miles of Yakima River shoreline within the city of Prosser is open for comment through the Washington Department of Ecology.
The proposed shoreline program will guide construction and development along Prosser's shoreline. It combines local plans for future development and preservation with new development ordinances and related permitting requirements.
Prosser adopted its shoreline plan on June 24, 2014. Once approved by Ecology, the city's shoreline program will become part of the overall state shoreline master program.
