National Heritage Area Event

Congressman Brian Baird gave an update on the Columbia Pacific National Heritage Area Efforts down at the Port of Ilwaco.

Aura had the event all pulled together- setting up with Jim Sayce... the Congressman and I just walked in! so wonderful! (thank you Aurie) Brett took the morning off work to help out (especially to lift the heavy sound system).

There were too many local dignitaries to mention- the State Senator, both State Representatives from the 19th District. Mayors from Ilwaco and Long Beach. County Commissioners from Pacific and Clatsop. City Councilmen, key business and association leaders- the list goes on and on! We had around 70 people show up (on a Tuesday at 10am).

and there I am -talking about the outreach efforts for this important new program.
