We had a smaller group than last year. But we had more signs! The guys doing the heavy lifting (Wayne Cline, Curt Kraemer and Steve Fransen) brought us up to speed on last year's and this year's escapement and progress from last year's Commission meetings. We took a moment of silence at 10:37AM and collected $137. It was to pay for a Darrington resident who is incurring an increased gas bill on their work commute into Arlington. Turns out, we had an extremely grateful recipient in our midst. Lastly, we will know how successful today's demonstration was tomorrow morning in the Everett Herald. Leland.
