The Young Democrats of Washington gathered in our state’s Capital on Wednesday to launch our 2016 Time Capsule project. Thanks to all the legislators, legislative staff, candidates, and other Olympians who came out make our launch party such a success!
There are a number of people we need to thank, starting with Yakima City Councilmember Dulce Gutierrez, who drove all the way from Central Washington to serve as our featured speaker. This night was made possible by our generous sponsors: Representative David Sawyer, Tumwater City Councilmember Nicole Hill, Olympia City Councilmember Jessica Bateman, 22nd LD candidate Laurie Dolan, Lynda Foster, Representative Laurie Jinkins and Tacoma City Councilmember Robert Thoms. Finally, we want to thank Former YD Walt Bowen for providing us with AV – and for inadvertently serving as the face of YDWA’s history.
The YDWA Time Capsule is going to be our way of preserving our organization’s history as we make it. We’ll be collecting materials for the time capsule through June, then not opening it again until 2020. If you’re interested in adding something to the capsule, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
