Hosted By: Sharon Burlison Snohomish Senior Center
On a beautiful summer evening we gathered at the Snohomish Senior Center for our June meeting.
The center, now celebrating its 30th year is more than just a place for the older generation. Not only do they offer membership for all ages, they offer classes, gathering space, monthly events and more.
Sharon, the Director, shared with us her passion for providing our seniors and community a place to belong and thrive in life.
As a fundraiser for the SNW Scholarship Fund, we asked for donations of jewelry and accessories and had our first sale! Sharon and her Senior Center members agreed to host the sale for the remainder of the month to help us generate even more funds for our 2020 recipient.
Our group was formerly known as Snohomish Women Networking until January 1, 2012, when we experienced a change in leadership and it was decided that the name of the group should change as well. We so enjoyed our time as Snohomish Women Networking and are still following the vision of the group set forth by Sandra Vandall and Betty Green.
Sandra Vandall presented the below inspiration for Snohomish Women Networking to Betty Green of The Village Photographer in September of 1990.
"Under the auspices of The Village Photographer, our first meeting was held in November of that year.
We feel the reason for the Snohomish Women Networking’s success is the three-fold premise it was founded on:
As our organization has grown over the past 28 years, it has attracted representatives of many local service groups. We are happy to welcome these dedicated members --an exemplary group of talented, professional women who work for the betterment of their businesses and the community of Snohomish."
