Dear Park and Historic Preservation Enthusiasts,

Please take a moment to complete the following survey to share your thoughts on options to renovate/repurpose the former Masonic Lodge at Crescent Creek Park. The survey will introduce the project in greater detail, and your responses will be very helpful in preparing a proposal to city council due in July 2024.

The survey only takes about 6 minutes.

Thanks for your input – and feel free to share with friends, neighbors, and colleagues who are familiar with the park and building.

GHCP would like to send out a big thank you to the community, teachers and local businesses who came out to the rummage sale to support the schools move this summer. We were able to raise over $3,000!!

We would also like to recognize the following businesses for their generosity and support:

Vickie Howell, Mary Kay independent sales director

Olalla Vineyard & Winery

Fox Island Trading Company

Olalla Blooms

Black Cat Barber Shop & Salon

Snapology Gig Harbor

Canterwood Golf & Country Club



We know that you’ve all been dying to know, and I promise, we’ve also been dying to tell you! We
have reached an agreement to share space with Peninsula Baptist Church (PBC) here in Gig
Harbor (about 3 minutes off the Wollochet exit). The community at PBC is excited to welcome us into their space, and we are looking forward to engaging together in service to our communities. We will be hosting an open house
towards the end of August so our families can come and see our new classroom!

Please stay tuned for more information, AND more opportunities to help with our move.

Thanks so much to everyone who supported our school by purchasing delicious pies!

We do happen to have two extra pies if anyone needs one last minute for Thanksgiving! Message us if you’re interested!


If you purchased a pie from us, pickup is tonight from 4-7pm at GHCP!

Hello everyone,

The day you've been waiting for is finally here! We are once again partnering with Remlinger Farms to raise money for the school through the sale of their delicious, locally handcrafted pies just in time for the holidays. You can access the order page by visiting:

This year we are also offering a "virtual pie" option for those who may be out of town or unable to pick up a pie but would still like to support the school with a donation. 100% of the proceeds from these virtual pies go directly to GHCP, and donors will receive a photo of your child with their own handcrafted pie artwork. When selecting this option, please be sure to include a comment with the child's full name and an email address to receive the photo.

Orders can be placed any time between now and the end of Wednesday, November 8, 2023.
Pies will be available for pickup at GHCP on Friday, November 17, 2023. Please stay tuned for more details about pickup as we get closer to the date.

Thanks for all your continued support! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out!


Hello Gig Harbor Co-op Community!

The Gig Harbor Cooperative Preschool has been serving the Gig Harbor community since 1965. We've operated out of various locations over the years: Hales Pass, multiple churches, and currently the old Masonic Lodge building. Along with our many amazing teachers, we've served countless students and their families - some of whom have even returned to the co-op with their own children!

We are now in search of our next home, and could use your help! We're looking for a church, commercial space, rental property, or other (we can get creative!) where we can continue to provide a play-based, educational space for our youngest learners and their families.

We are a 501c3 non-profit organization, so there may be some benefit in leasing to us (we're not tax experts, sorry!).

Ideally we'd have a space for a classroom (we only hold one class at a time), bathroom, kitchen/kitchenette, and outdoor space that we can secure for outdoor play. We operate September through May, approximately 9:00am - 3:30pm Monday-Friday. We'd still lease in the summer for storage and board meetings.

If you have a space for us, any ideas, or maybe someone we should talk to, please send us a message or leave a voicemail at 253-858-6911.
