State Dems Meet In Wenatchee

Politics can be fun, Deb and I headed East last weekend so I could attend the Washington Democrats State Committee meeting in lovely Wenatchee. Wenatchee is locatated just East of the Cascade Mountains, although small, has a lot of charm and character (bottom picture is Bob's Classic, a diner across from our hotel). It is located at the Confluence of the Wenatchee and Columbia Rivers with a population of about 30,00o.

We arrived Friday evening at the Coast Hotel, a little late to enjoy much of the hospitality suites, we went to Roasters at the top of Hotel, I had never heard of a small town having a night club on the top floor.

Wenatchee is in the middle of it's annual Apple Blossom Festival, while I went to the meetings on Saturday, Deb went to a parade and poked around town.

Before every State Democratic meeting, there is a luncheon, this time it was a Trivia Luncheon. Each table was a team. At my table was Jennifer Sutton, Aaron Belenky, Rob Dolin, Steve Zemke, Dan Lambert and Barbara Gellar. Every table of given sheets of questions and whoever could answer the most would win prize for each member. Our table, which included two 5th District Democrats, took first prize. Not bad! We each got a bottle of wine for our victory. Hopefully, I didn't leave anyone out.

The State Committee meeting concluded once again, with Aziem Underwood singing his "Salt Off The Fries". Amidst happy hand clappin' members, relieved that another meeting could have a little silliness.
