The Education Fund Luncheon, held at the Indian Summers Country Club on October 20, 2018, was a great success.
This is our annual fundraising event, as well as an opportunity to hear inspiring words from a governmental leader, present an award to an individual who has made a difference in our community, and generally celebrate our work.
Our guest speaker was Kim Wyman, Washington State Secretary of State centered her remarks on “Securing the Electoral Process.” Secretary Wyman shared her insights and stressed the urgency of addressing cyber-security and other
threats to our election safety and security. It was gratifying to hear that Washington ranks highly in our election security. In light of the League’s dedication to non-partisanship, attendees especially appreciated Secretary Wyman’s assertions that while a candidate may run as a partisan to get elected, an elected official must work for all people afterward.
The 2018 Citizen Achievement Award was presented to Dr. Allyson Brooks, the Washington State Director of Antiquities and Historic Preservation. Additional information about this award and Dr. Brooks can be found by clicking here.
League members and friends attending the Luncheon found opportunities to mingle and visit – at check-in while The Burren Band provided lively music, during lunch, and while checking out Silent Auction items.
The bargain filled Silent Auction was held this year to raise funds for our League’s operating account.
