A big thank you to the host chapters, United Blind of Tri-Cities, Yakima Valley, and United Blind of Seattle! Thank you to the hotel staff and volunteers!
Also, thanks to those going off the board for their service: Danette Dixon, Meka White, and Cindy Van Winkle.
After much discussion, we passed a tighter budget. We elected officers: President Denise Colley, First Vice-President Andy Arvidson, and Treasurer Deb Cook Lewis. Four board member positions were filled: J.R. Kinneson, Holly Kaczmarski, Jim Turri, and Annie Hartzel.
WCB awarded $17,800 in college scholarships to eight recipients. Congratulations!
