Letter to the Editor: Yelm’s Water Tower Looks Amazing

The town water tower is amazing. It has been restored and improved.

I came to Yelm as a child, when my grandparents moved here in 1969. I always knew we were close to their home on Mill Road every time I saw the tower. I spent all my summers and school vacations here. There was a blinking yellow traffic light, the only one in town. The water tower was my landmark. I would ride my bike to town shopping at Wolf’s Shoprite, Pickett’s Pharmacy and Gordon’s. I knew that if I saw the water tower, I would always find the road back to my grandparents.



However lovely the “new” water tower is, it’s missing one important item: The guiding start on top. I could see it from my grandparent’s home back in the day. Please restore it and return it to its place of glory, guiding us all safely home.
