To Our FIRST Washington Community:

 The health and safety of our community is top of mind for us.  Thus, in keeping with Governor Inslee’s mask amendment and vaccine proclamation, which defines workers as also being volunteers, we will require all “in person” volunteers to be vaccinated by October 18th and to wear a mask for any FIRST Washington meetings or events.  

Recording from our September 14th meeting. If you have any questions or concerns please email volunteer@firstwa.org

 We’re looking forward to seeing all of you during the season and appreciate your adherence to these mandates and policies.
