Hola Seattle Chapter Familia!
On Friday, March 4th, we held our first in-person event of the year.
We had an overall good turnout! Three new Chapter members were introduced a la familia. Then, our very own LT Graciela Fuller was selected to participate in the panel for the ANSO Eastern Symposium.
We welcomed our guest speaker Angie Tucker, who shared how her challenging upbringing fueled her desire to help others as a key figure in the Seattle area’s volunteer community. Her journey started when, on a decisive Christmas Day, she baked over 100 cookies for the homeless community. Within a few years, her generosity was the impetus for a community-wide event centered around giving back. Ms. Tucker also shared her experiences working in law enforcement at a prison, and her observations related to race, opportunities and challenges for minorities and our Latinx community.
Ms. Tucker structured her time and her words to inspire us to serve our community, which is one of the areas our chapter will be working towards to this year.
After the formal event, a group of us met at Sea Pine Brewery to connect and get to know eachother better.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events:
25 March- Volunteer Service at Maritime High School in Renton, WA
29 March- Seattle Chapter Luncheon at Bangor Trident Base
13-14 April: ANSO Atlantic Region Symposium, Norfolk VA
Ongoing: Volunteer training at Centro de la Raza
