WFRW Website Photo Album recently updated

Thanks to the photographic skills of our WFRW members and friends, we have been able to add some additional images to our online Photo Album -- click here.


The Municipal Research and Services Center has published their recently revised Getting into Office: Being Elected or Appointed into Office in Washington Counties, Cities, Towns and Special Districts.  If you know someone who might be interested in an elected or appointed office, this is an excellent document for them to read.

Many of the over 140 members of the WFRW from across the state who participated in the WFRW's annual Day At The Capitol joined members Secretary of State Kim Wyman, Senator Barbara Bailey and Representative Jan Angel for a group photo on the steps of the Capitol Rotunda.  Everyone was pleased that Senator Michael Baumgartner, Representative Mark Hargrove and Representative Hans Zeiger, who also met with the WFRW ladies earlier in the morning, were able to stay for this photo.
