Rhubarb Pie Capital of the World

What Can You Do?

  • Stop by Cascade Regional Blood Center and donate critical blood (if you can).
  • Walk or bike the Sumner Link Trail.
  • Get a cup o’ joe & scone to go at your favorite coffee shop.
  • Phone a friend you haven’t talked to in a really long time.
  • Get a new novel online to have delivered from A Good Book and enjoy it at home.
  • Shop online for some new baking tools to have delivered from Simple Tidings & Kitchen and spend time in your kitchen.
  • Catch up on the projects with Sumner Connects and share some feedback.
  • Bake a rhubarb pie, or share with us your favorite rhubarb pie recipe. Click here to get recipes from growers, other Sumner residents and visitors.
  • Know someone home with a baby? Send them a special present that you bought online from Sugarbabies!
  • Learn a new language. (Travel will come back!)
  • Support a local non-profit with an online gift. Many rely on this time of year for their annual fundraisers, so they will be hit hardest when they need resources & funding the most. Extra bonus? Giving to a charity is proven to lift your spirits!
  • Walk down Main Street and window-shop.
  • Try a new restaurant. Use our Dining Guide to see who provides take out and who delivers. (There’s a lot!)
  • Walk around town and look for teddy bears in windows. There is one in City Hall too! (Hint: look up!)
  • Order a meal to go from your favorite restaurant or try something new! **Great tip circulating social media: if you’re really worried about isolation, order gift cards from restaurants so they get the cash flow now, and you get to enjoy the food later!
  • Respond to the 2020 Census invitation!
  • Discover the Tacoma Art Museum with TAM at home including “tours” of the collection, activities and more.
  • Drop off supplies to the Sumner Food Bank. This is hitting everyone hard.
  • Become part of history. Share your story about what it’s like living through these days with the Washington State History Museum.
  • Enjoy a walk and visit to the “art museum” on our sidewalks as may families have been having fun with sidewalk chalk.
  • Treat yourself to bath bombs or lotions (everyone’s hands are really dry now) at a local boutique like Whispering Hills, A Picket Fence or Whispering Hills, who will help arrange shipping/pick-up with social distancing.
  • Check out services Pierce County Library offers online. Bet there’s more than you ever realized!
  • Buy gift cards for Sumner stores (under Greater Seattle area) or around the State and start planning a great adventure closer to home.
  • Buy a theater ticket. Arts groups are currently shut down, so buy a ticket to a future performance. Try something new! Opera? Ballet? Musical? Why not?
  • Surf Travel Tacoma’s website and plan one new adventure at a museum and/or attraction you’ll try when this is all over.
  • Have the kids design movie tickets and do a true night “in” at the movies with popcorn, candy and everything.

Anyone else need a nap? We tried to highlight a lot of our local businesses but couldn’t include them all. Keep exploring Sumner Downtown Promotion Association and the Puyallup-Sumner Chamber of Commerce for more links and resources.
