We are proud to announce that Dustin and Aubri Armitage, and their Pybus business of “Cha’ Fine Teas,” is one of three finalists for the the 2015 Entrepreneur of the year award, sponsored by the Greater Wenatchee Area Technology Alliance.
To become a finalist, the business must have displayed exceptional vision, leadership and innovation in building a new venture, developing a new product or service or delivering an existing product or service to the marketplace. That sounds a lot like Cha’ Fine Teas, we think. This is a high honor for Dustin and Aubri, who exemplify the kind of merchants at Pybus Market that make us such a fun and desirable venue to shop at. Congratulations to the Armitages for their courage, passion, vision and hard work. Winners will be announced at a luncheon honoring all finalists on March 17.
Events at Pybus this week include:
>>> Mule Deer Summit on Thursday, March 5, 6:30 pm. Learn more about these graceful creatures that live in our foothills. Find out why winter and early spring are so important to the migrating herds. Please bring your family and friends. Free admission.
>>> Erin McNamee performs in our Friday night live music set from 7pm to 9pm on Friday, March 6. Erin graduated Suma Cum Laude from Cornish with a Bachelor of Music degree. Erin sings mostly folk music and multi-genre: opera, classical, chant, cabaret, jazz standards, music-theater, blues, roots, country, bluegrass, rock, Irish trad, Sean-Nos, Celtic and original music. Her song repertoire consists of somewhere above 400 songs.

If you do, come join us at the 2nd annual Lego competition on Saturday, March 7th from 9:30 am-4:00 pm (9:00am registration) to build your own Lego creation and compete in special Lego building events. There will be both casual building times and competitive Lego events throughout the day. Bring your own legos, as there is a very limited supply of “free” legos to borrow. There is no cost to participate. All entries must be built at Pybus Market in order to be eligible to win the prizes awarded to the top three participants in each age group.
