Memorial Day

On Sunday I will be attending Enumclaw's Annual Memorial Day Honors Ceremony held at Veteran's Memorial Park (Purple Heart Monument) hosted by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 1949.

Memorial Day is a time for all of us to remember the men and women who died while serving in our country's armed forces. I hope everyone will take a moment this weekend to reflect on the sacrifices of these brave men and women.

We as a nation are eternally in debt to these brave individuals for everything that they and their families have sacrificed on behalf of our country.

At this ceremony I will also present to VFW Post 1949 the flag used in a solemn ceremony for the interment of indigent veterans at the Tahoma National Cemetery last July. My sincere thanks to VFW Post 1949 for, without hesitation, agreeing to have the flag placed in their custody for display and safe-keeping.

Ravensdale Park Ribbon Cutting

The Ravensdale Park phase 2 expansion was officially opened with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday May 21st. I was joined by State and local leaders as well as community groups instrumental in the success of this expansion. Thank you to everyone involved in turning this project into a reality.
