    It's been a fun day on the Hill...now let's talk about it!

    You are invited to join all the Lobby Day attendees for a fun, catered dinner at the house of our Board member and current NACPM co-president, Audrey Levine.  She lives just blocks from our morning meeting place, so you can keep the same parking spot.  Bring your comments about your experiences during the day and a drink to share. 

    Audrey's address:  217 17th Avenue SE, Olympia, WA.  

    We look forward to seeing you there!  If you RSVP and then cannot attend, please send a message to Sasha, our coordinator, so we can adjust the catering.
