Rufus Woods: “Pybus annex will be a game changer for our valley”

Former Wenatchee World publisher Rufus Woods wrote this newspaper column on July 3: “The newly remodeled annex at Pybus Public Market is simply stunning — a game changer for the market and the community at large. The $500,000 project is close to completion, although we will need to step up and do a little bit more to pay for these improvements to this community asset. About $390,000 has been donated, so another $110,000 still needs to be contributed to fully fund the improvements.

The event center space was created out of the original concrete-block

“Who owns Pybus Market? All of us,” says Publisher Rufus Woods

This newspaper column written by Wenatchee World publisher Rufus Woods was published in the newspaper on Sunday, February 11, 2018: “One of the myths in the Wenatchee Valley is that Pybus Public Market is “owned” by local philanthropists Mike and JoAnn Walker. While they made extraordinary contributions to make the market a reality, the truth of the matter is that the citizens of the Wenatchee Valley — that’s all of us — now own this facility. Pybus Public Market Foundation with a board of 21 community members controls the property. We have an opportunity, and I would go so far as to say an obligation, to take our ownership of this market seriously and make sure we are supporting it
