We so thankful to have Doug Scherer as our new Retreat Center Food Service Director. He and his wife Julie moved to Sudden Valley about three years ago to be closer to their children and grandchildren; they are still finding their way around Whatcom and Skagit county.  Doug says that “one of the blessings of working at The Firs is the elimination of a 140 mile daily commute to Seattle, and believe me, I’m truly thankful for that.”

Doug comes to this position with a variety of experience in cooking, catering, and event creation.  Doug says that his intention is to continue the high level of quality and service that is synonymous with The Firs.  Please drop in and say hello; he would enjoy getting to our Firs family!
