Letter 30 - "THAT'S SO COWLITZ"
"That's So Cowlitz"
Not sure if you’ve heard the term "that’s so Cowlitz" yet, but it’s getting tossed around and associated with a myriad of negative acts and unfavorable behavior.
Someone sees something deplorable and states "that’s sooooo Cowlitz"!
We’ve heard it said with eye rolls, with a sigh, and sometimes with disgust. The term, as it’s currently used, seems to portray that there’s nothing we can do, this is just how it is, and that nothing is going to change… some things do need to change and we as a community are working and will continue to work on that, but the list of great things to do, see, and to be a part of is growing!
So we would like to continue the use of the term "that’s so Cowlitz" but we’ve got a way better use for it…
Steve the Rabbit (LC School Gardens) … that’s so Cowlitz
Children's Discovery Museum… that’s so Cowlitz
Castle Rock Blooms… that’s so Cowlitz
Kalama Marina Park… that’s so Cowlitz
Longview Parks and Recreation… that’s so Cowlitz
Longview Public Library… that’s so Cowlitz
Longview Outdoor Gallery… that’s so Cowlitz

Mt. St. Helens + Cowlitz County Tourism… that’s so Cowlitz
Willow Grove Park.... that's so Cowlitz

Service groups and volunteer opportunities… that’s so Cowlitz
Great Family Events and Festivals… that’s so Cowlitz
Proximity to Seattle and Portland… that’s so Cowlitz
Outdoor Opportunities and access to nature… that’s so Cowlitz
… the list can go on and on as to why being fun, family-friendly, and beautiful is "So Cowlitz".
Cowlitz County is pretty amazing when you think about the great place we live, work, and play.
So here’s a simple suggestion:
Work hard to make sure that each day is better than the day before and then imagine what our days could be like as we get older. Now "THAT'S SO COWLITZ"!!!!
