85th Hawley Society Reunion has its eye on Seattle. October 4-8, 2017.
Thursday morning the group will board the light rail for a daytime sightseeing excursion. On the agenda: Space Needle (discover the Hawley connection to this 1962 World’s Fair icon), and the world-famous Chihuly Garden and Glass Sculptures next door. Lunch at Pike Place Market overlooking Elliott Bay.
Then on to Pioneer Square for the Klondike Museum and a stop at the Sound Transit building to hear about its history and restoration.
Dinner at Anthony’s Home Port Restaurant in Des Moines (Washington, not Iowa).
Friday we leave the city for Whidbey Island, guided by Sheriff Michael A. Hawley. Then off to Fort Casey, where Michael or his Park Ranger daughter gives us the military history of the base. Dinner in Burien.
Saturday morning is the 85th Annual Meeting, this year via light rail to the Daughters of the American Revolution House. Hear speaker Julia Marshall on her Massachusetts Hawley line and their migration to Seattle. Possibly a presentation by Michael A. Hawley. Also reports and updates on the Hawley Society from officers and committees. Steve Clarke has an update on his Holley/Holly/Hawley research project. Election of officers for 2017-2018 and site selection for the 2018 reunion. Any ideas? A box lunch is included with the registration for the entire reunion or only the Annual Meeting.
