Meet the LakeChelanNow Team….

Now and again an idea floats to the surface that just seems to make sense. A convergence – if you will – of interest, opportunity, need, experience and timing.

We feel that time is “now” and as a result we’re pleased to announce the launch of LakeChelanNow.

The Lake Chelan Valley is unique in so many ways. It boasts stunning beauty, a wondrous four seasons climate that affords year round recreational opportunities, terrain and soils that nourish the best in agricultural production of apples, wine grapes and other crops and, of course, a lake that many embrace as one of the natural wonders of the world. Our valley is also comprised of a proud, passionate and hard working population of full time residents as well as a steady stream of part time residents and vacationers.

Lake Chelan Now…Inspired by and Reflective of Life in the Lake Chelan Valley

LakeChelanNow is truly “community inspired” and we look forward to sharing this site with residents and visitors alike. You can meet some of our contributors section and for many of you, some or all will be familiar names. Our goal is to inform, entertain and share. We will shine a light on community events, local sports, things to do, important meetings and more.

We have a core group of contributors to this site, including some names (and voices) you may already be familiar with: Dennis Rahm, Loni Rahm, Jerry Isenhart, and Steve Byquist – with Social Media support from Jenna Rahm and Kacie Rahm.

You can expect written stories, photos, videos and yes — as some of us are long time radio broadcasters — we will certainly incorporate audio into this site. Sometimes audio and or video will be included to provide additional depth and understanding to a story, at times for “live” coverage of an event and soon in the form of staff created podcasts.

We also want to hear from you.

If you have photos to share, an idea for a story, a name of a community member you’d like to see profiled, or comments in general — you can reach out to us at or via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

With your help and interaction, this site will continue to grow. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy our initial foray into life in the Lake Chelan Valley.
