We are having our 40th Reunion October 1st. We can’t believe it has been that long either.
We have planned a casual evening at Matthews Cellars Winery in Woodinville. The cost is $50.00 and covers a delicious meal catered by Armadillo Barbeque, non-alcoholic drinks by Talking Rain, and a DJ playing tunes from our era. No-host bar will be available.

Here’s a picture looking toward Seattle from David Brink Park. It was about a month ago. My title might be “a bright spot on a cloudy day”. Let me know if you need higher resolution. This is what the iPad does without some messing around. Bob McConnell
