At July's TWA meeting, we talked with Pierce County Executive Bruce Dammeier.

Executive Dammeier has a close personal connection to the waterfront, saying that it is the “intersection of environment, recreation and jobs.” He emphasized three characteristics that define himself and perhaps the waterfront: action, collaboration and partnership.

We also welcomed TWA’s new Administrative Director, Patricia Peterson! Jayna Marshall, the previous Administrative Director, retired. In addition, Liz Satterthwaite with Engage Northwest will help TWA with communications. We talked about last month’s Crab Feed fundraiser and upcoming events. We had good opportunities to network before the presentation and after the meeting. Thank you for the great turnout! Here’s a look at Jayna and Patricia as they passed the baton last month! Welcome, Patricia!

No August General Meeting! We will not have a TWA General meeting in August. TWA Board meeting will continue.

Thank you to TWA members Amber Stream and Lorraine Wilson of Cornerstone Advisors NW, LLC! They generously offered their conference room on Ruston Way for our general meetings over the past few months. Thank you again!

September meeting at Tacoma Youth Marine Center. The Tacoma Youth Marine Center is finishing its remodeling project, and we anticipate holding our September general meeting at the center. More details to come!
