Celebrating a Community of Leadership and Innovation

Last night we celebrated our community’s hard work at our Annual Sustainable Community Outstanding Leadership & Innovation Awards Dinner where we awarded individuals and organizations for all of their truly inredible pursuits. The event was held at the beautiful Duwamish Longhouse where Taylor Shellfish provided fresh seafood and other entrees for a tasty meal. We also had amazing salmon provided by Loki Fish Co. accompanied with fresh bread rolls from Macrina Bakery. Along with all the amazing food and drinks, the room was filled with a lot of great people, including a great storytelling by Jeff Leinaweaver.
