Igniting the flame of service is speaker’s theme for  at 2014 Wohelo Luncheon
Shiloh Schauer, Wenatchee Valley Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, is the keynote speaker for the 2014 Wohelo Luncheon on Wednesday, March 5 at the Wenatchee Convention Center. The public is invited.
Schauer’s enthusiasm for all that makes life in the Wenatchee Valley so rewarding is contagious, as is her dedication to community service. In discussing, “Legacy Building,†she will talk about the people and ideas that inspire her to do part in making our community a great place to live for generations to come.
In addition, the 2014 Trail Blazer Award winner will be announced at the Wohelo Luncheon. The annual award recognizes a community member for substantial and sustained service to youth. Trail Blazers are community members who have made significant contributions to programs that inspire and support youth across the region.

Recent honorees include:
•     Paul and Kelly Atwood, community and school musical theater supporters and performers
•     Caryl Morrell, longtime organizer of the Special Olympics Winter Games in Wenatchee
•     Susan Ballinger, retired Wenatchee teacher and outdoor advocate
•     Mary Kile, Moses Lake business owner and life-long Camp Fire volunteer;
•     Doug Head, former  director, Children’s Home Society, Wenatchee regional office;
•     Wilfred Woods, chairman of World Publishing (Wenatchee World);
•     Dan Jackson, retired Wenatchee High School music director, and Sue Lawson, tireless Wenatchee community theater advocate.

Schauer, who grew up here, returned to the Wenatchee Valley full-time in 2013 to lead the chamber after 10 years working with Washington State Senator Linda Evans Parlette.
Schauer’s passion for service compliments NCW Camp Fire’s focus on leadership programs for boys and girls, toddlers to teens, that are designed to build caring confident youth, said Theresa Samuelsen, NCW Camp Fire Executive Director. The Wenatchee-based council serves youngsters in Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Okanogan and parts of Adams counties with club programs and at Camp Zanika Lache on Lake Wenatchee.
The Wohelo Luncheon is one of the council’s major fund-raisers, along with the annual candy sale. Wohelo is the universal Camp Fire greeting. A combination of “work,†“health†and “love, the thoughts in these three words represent the joy and worth of life. 
Doors open at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 5, and lunch will be served at noon. Lunch is provided by sponsors. Attendees will be asked for a donation.
