Building a better community every day!
Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you that made my 7-year tenure as the Tukwila Historical Society Chair so great. I really appreciate it. It was a good run... we increased the funds in the 501(c)3 organizational account by 100-fold from the year 2006 prior to our major fundraising efforts that began with the 2008 Centennial of the City to the present after our 2013 Silent Auction gala. My original plan was to thank the Council directly for allowing me to portray founding mayor Joel Shomaker at the June Council meeting of 2008. However it wasn't to be. My 5-minute THS update set for the October 28 Agenda was removed according to the City Clerk. The Council President considered more pressing issues that the City is currently involved with. Thanks again.
