I am looking forward to seeing many of you, our supporters at our luncheon Thursday. Our turnout is bigger than ever, and despite issues with grant and state funding, direct individual donors are supporting The Arc in larger numbers and people are volunteering here in greater numbers. I am very pleased with the outpouring and we hope to build on this renewed interest and commitment from our supporters. We have a renewed relationship with the University of Washington and will welcome 4 student interns into our outreach and advocacy program come late summer and early fall. There is always more that individuals can do to support The Arc. The Board is developing some new Board materials and hoping to expand and diversify our Board representation. To that end we are recruiting Board members. If you are interested in exploring how you can get involved on the Board level, call me.
