The potluck is an apt metaphor for what makes a chapter vibrant.
Everyone brings something to the table.
Thanks to all who came out for our AAJA Seattle end-of-summer picnic. It was a fun event – and we enjoyed sunny skies!
The picnic offered members with children a rare opportunity to come network with colleagues and enjoy the beauty of West Seattle’s Lincoln Park.
We had members come from as far away as Yakima, Bellingham and Tacoma!
The chapter provided picnic supplies, bratwurst, chips, salsa, vegetable trays and soda pop.
Members brought food items that gave our picnic an international flavor: Thai BBQ chicken, Southern fried chicken, orzo salad, tomato-basil salad, Indian samosas, spicy Asian noodles, and peach pie with ice cream, among other dishes.
