On Thursday, May 2nd at 1:30 pm, Washington Secretary of State, Kim Wyman, is scheduled to speak to the residents of Village Concepts of Hoquiam – Channel Point retirement community, as well as members of the public.
The retirement community hosts a bi-monthly Speaker Series with leaders from the Grays Harbor business and non-profit community. Kim Wyman is also speaking to a community group in Ocean Shores in the morning and will be coming to Hoquiam in the afternoon. According to Maggie Birmingham, Channel Point’s Executive Director, “Our residents are actively involved in their community and follow politics and current events. They enjoy hearing directly from community leaders. It’s a pleasure to be able to host Secretary Wyman from the State level.”
One of the programs that Secretary Wyman oversees is Legacy Washington, which profiles extraordinary Washingtonians, several from Grays Harbor County. Legacy Washington was an inspiration for a program recently started at Channel Point to record residents’ life stories, along with The Polson Museum’s oral history recording project, “My Harbor Story.”
