PIerce County Central Committee Meeting

Above I am pictured with fellow Precinct Committee Officers. To my left is the honorary Bob Lawrence (President of the Pierce County Republican Party) and to my right is Phil Raschke (Former President of the 28th Legislative District). As a Precinct Committee Officer, I am honored to be working with such dedicated and sincere gentlemen in efforts to help make our communities a better place to live. Remember to vote, attend your caucus and get involved to help make a difference in your community!

First Dining Out as a Military Officer's Wife

My husband and I at our first Dining Out event with his fellow Navy Officers and their wives celebrating his and four other Officer's recent promotion.
It was honor to sit at the table with these dedicated Navy Officers and their wives. I am so proud to be a Military Wife!

Getting Ready for the Pinewood Derby!

Here I am helping a few of my Tiger Cubs polish the axles to their Pinewood Derby Cars at our annual Pinewood Derby Workshop.

My boy Cody is showing off his car. He plans on making it into the famous "Bumble Bee" car from the movie Transformers!
Cub Scouts is a family affair no doubt. Above Daddy is teaching Cody the importance of polishing those axles!

Honoring a True Angel

I am so honored to have had the privilege to work along the side of McChord Air Force Base's True Angel of the annual "Angel Tree" program for military children - Annette Sisseck. This program adopts military children stationed at McChord A.F. B. and the surrounding areas during the Christmas Season to ensure they have a memorable Christmas morning with gifts for them to open from Santa. Above is a picture of Annette and myself at her retirement ceremony culminating 27 years of her dedicated service to our country. You will surely be missed Annette - you have definitely earned your wings!
Above is a picture of myself and my little elves delivering our last load of gifts to be delivered to military children of McChord Air Force Base. Annette was key in making sure these gifts were distributed all throughout the base and the surrounding areas. I am forever humbled by her gracious gesture in nominating me for and eventually being awarded the prestigious Bryce Lilly Service Award this last year at the 2009 McChord A.F.B. Annual Awards Ceremony. Without her, none of it would have been possible! Thank you again Annette - you are an ANGEL!
