Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Last Saturday, I had the privilege of attending the City of Pateros Parade and Apple Pie Jamboree. The city organized a centennial celebration, which was attended by a delegation from Pateros, Philippines. Thanks to Mayor Gail Howe, I was the official witness to attest to the sister city ceremonies. The photo on the right includes me with Pateros, Philippines Mayor Joey Medina, and Pateros, Washington Mayor Howe, along with city honorees. In addition to meeting the delegation, my family and I participated in the parade and enjoyed delicious apple pie. Congratulations to Mayor Howe and the entire city for organizing a fabulous event.
I also had the opportunity to attend the annual Washington Apple Education Foundation Scholarship Banquet, which recognized outstanding students throughout North Central Washington. The foundation raised more than $650,000 in scholarships thanks to generous businesses and supporters in our agricultural community. Congratulations to the Washington Apple Education Foundation for another amazing year.
The 12th Legislative District is beautiful, and my family and I look forward to more visits in the weeks and months ahead.
Thank you for the opportunity to represent you!
