To fellow members of NWWB,
I’m a member of the Center for Wooden Boats’ Board of Trustees and I’d like to extend a personal invitation to all of you to join me at my table at this year’s Breakfast for Boats, CWB’s annual fundraising breakfast, October 4 at REI, 7:30-9:00.
(I know you won’t all fit at my table for ten but wouldn’t it be great if we had to reserve a second table, just for NWWB?)
CWB has four generous sponsors this year, including the Portage Bay Café for the catering. All donations will go directly to support CWB. The keynote speach by David Mosely, Assistant Secretary, Ferries Division, Washington State Department of Transportation should be an interesting one.
You probably know CWB as a special place doing wonderful work preserving old wooden boats, building new ones and providing opportunities for the public to go sailing. What you may not know is all the work that CWB has been doing to change lives one boat at time. Did you know:
- CWB recently launched a jobs-training program for underserved youth.
- CWB teaches boat-building, and other boating-related classes to both children and adults.
- CWB teaches special woodworking classes for women only.
- The American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) named CWB among the 2011 winners of the 66th annual national Leadership in History Awards, the most prestigious recognition for achievement in the preservation and interpretation of state and local history

I hope you are able to join me.
