It’s Silverdale Slogan Time

Brynn Grimley writes:

OK folks, it’s time to have some fun. In case you haven’t noticed, Silverdale needs an identity. Well maybe not an identity, but local leaders from the Silverdale Chamber of Commerce and the Clear Creek Trail think it’s time to coin a phrase that best embodies Silverdale.

That’s why they’re asking the residents in Kitsap County to participate in a “Silverdale Slogan Contest” competition. A winner will be selected and honorable mention given for the best slogans submitted. The winning slogan will also be embossed on a newly designed “Welcome to Silverdale” sign that was recently refurbished along Silverdale Way at the north entrance into town. (Interestingly enough, longtime Silverdale resident Hank Mann-Sykes’ son built the sign as his Eagle Scout project back in the day).

The deadline for the contest is March 31 (at 11:59 p.m. to be exact for all you procrastinators out there). Suggested slogans should be emailed to Dionne ( at the chamber, or the Clear Creek Trail ( folks.

Both organization’s board of directors will select the winning slogan and will announce it at the sign’s unveiling. The contest winner, the person selected for honorable mention and their guests will be special invitees at the chamber’s President’s Luncheon, April 27 at the Silverdale Beach Hotel. At the luncheon they’ll receive recognition from chamber President Angela Sell and prizes from chamber members.

The contest is open to all residents of Kitsap County and people of all ages.

While the chamber and trail folks are looking for serious entries, I figured we could have some fun with Silverdale slogans “not fit to print”. I don’t want anything inappropriate, but I’m sure people are dying for a creative outlet to share their not-so-serious Silverdale slogans. Think of it as a way to get the creative juices flowing for your “for reals” slogan submissions.

I’ll kick us off with some of the slogans I’ve heard (I take no credit for these, I’m not witty enough, trust me).

Silverdale: The city of boxes (think big box stores and the building architecture that looks like boxes)

Silverdale: Kitsap County’s Cash Cow

Silverdale, the city that isn’t

What are your ideas, I’d love to hear ’em.

  2. Hmmmm,

    My great aunt and uncle raised their five boys on a farm in Silverdale and I am sure they are both rolling in the graves over how we messed it up. Both my dad and I went to CK and graduated when there was only one traffic light in Silverdale. But here goes my attempts, tongue in cheek…

    Silverdale: The place to be on Highway three!
    Silverdale: It’s the mall and that’s about all….
    Silverdale: Because Goldendale was already taken.
    Silverdale: The City that isn’t.
    Silverdale: Eat at Elsie’s!
    Heigh Ho Silverdale, away!

    I got these from the Sloganizer…

    We’re serious about Silverdale.
    It’s that Silverdale feeling.
    Come to life, come to Silverdale.
    Make it a Silverdale night.
    Any time, any place, Silverdale

    Enough fun for now, I’ll come back if I think of more.


  3. I still like the one that I see used the most: Consumerdale

    Other possibilities:

    Silverdale, the most frustrating navigational way to spend your Saturday.

    Silverdale, the boring looking retail area between the real cities of Bremerton and Poulsbo.

    Silverdale, we have a mall, but no one shops there anymore.

    Silverdale, the land of yellow turn arrows that drivers just don’t understand the rules for.

    Silverdale, WE have a dog park! (this one is for you Sharon:-)

  4. Silverdale: Home of the only dog park in Kitsap County paid for by dog folks – not the unaware taxpayer. (Colleen, thanks – you spurred me on… :))

    Silverdale: The independent center of Kitsap County.
