CCSRA LUNCH – Tuesday, February 18, 2019 at NOON
113 N. DelGuzzi Drive
Our speaker will be David Brownell, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe. Here is what he wrote about his subject:
A presentation of ethnographic and archaeological research on sxʷčkʷíyəŋ, one of the ancestral villages of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe that stood at Washington Harbor. The presentation will feature artifacts, maps, and historical photos. This village, at least 500 years old at the time of European contact, was intrinsically linked to the Sequim Prairie: the S’Klallam name, pronounced “sh-ch-kwung,” is translated as “a good place to shoot” and is the origin of the name “Sequim.”
We will also have as our guest Dr. Alan Burke, WSSRA Executive Director.
If you will be attending, please let us know by 3:00 pm the Sunday prior to the meeting, if possible, by calling Darlene Jones (360-457-5352) or Jill Oakes (360-417-3012). It’s okay to come even if you miss the deadline. We just like to have a general idea so the restaurant knows how many places to set. Sometimes the restaurant workers have to scramble to set up more tables, but they are happy to have us.
Each attendee is able to order any item from the menu. A free dessert is usually included after lunch.
Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner items are offered. There is also a daily special.
President, Lora Brabant; Vice President, Beverly Brown; Secretary, Linda Boyd; and Treasurer, Arlene Morganroth. Marcia Homer is Membership Chair. Mary Bell is Sunshine Person. If you know of someone who could use a greeting card from us, please let Mary know. We are still in need of a new Historian. If you’re interested or even curious, ask an officer.
We are still collecting new and gently used children’s books for First Step in Port Angeles and Head Start in Sequim. You are welcome to bring books or monetary donations to any of the luncheons. Books will be delivered in May.
Low Cost Fundraiser:
We will continue to collect money for the Washington State School Retirees Political Action Committee which works in partnership with our organization. Each month a basket with candies will be passed around. You are invited to donate and take a treat. If you wish to donate more, you can do it online at <wssr-pac.org> or you can write a check to WSSR-PAC and put it in the basket. Any donation of $25 or more lets legislators know there is another person on the list who cares about what is happening in Olympia. You can also write a check to WSSR-PAC and mail it to:
