The History and Heritage Committee of the Seattle Section is interested obtaining information about the Section, particularly prior to 1940. Our Section records are archived at the Washington State Historical Museum Research Center/Library, but are missing Section history from 1913 up to the World War II era. We would appreciate hearing about possible contact names or sources of early meeting minutes or memorabilia. If you have this type if information to share, or if you know anyone we should speak with, please contact Rex Meyer at 206-674-4222 (or email@example.com) or Cindy Hirsch.
Associated with the exhibit will be hands-on child focused activities and demonstrations on two Saturday sessions in the museum's Family Lab. These events will be hosted by the Seattle Section K-12 Outreach committee on November 23, 2013 and January 18, 2014 from 11-2.
