We had a great time at Hands Across the Border with our friends from Alberta, BC & Yukon, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and here in Washington. We even had visitors from other jurisdictions and the place was packed! The theme was "vintage glitz", the food was delicious and the entertainment - consisting of skits from the 6 jurisdictions - was fabulous. It was exciting to hear the announcements for the next triennium and we look forward to great times with Bobbi and John.
