To the Editor:
The final date for purchasing tickets to Lake Forest Park Gov Watch’s Communicator of the Year Award Dinner honoring LFP Police Chief Steve Sutton, is next Tuesday, November 15.
Attendees will enjoy a varied BBQ dinner catered by LFP’s own Briley’s BBQ and an entertaining and informative program featuring Washington’s Attorney General, several local speakers, a poet, and a singer. Celebrating Chief Sutton as a role model as an effective communicator, the theme for the evening underlines the importance of vital leadership in the community.
Recently re-elected to his second term as Washington State Attorney General, Bob Ferguson will welcome guests in a video message. Deputy Attorney General Darwin Roberts will deliver the keynote address. Several Lake Forest Park favorites will take to the podium. Speaking about Chief Sutton are local leaders who know him well: Aimee Miner, Principal, Lake Forest Park Elementary School; Ed Pearson, President, LFP Rotary, who promises a roast; and Judge Linda Portnoy, who has presided over the LFP Municipal Court since 1998. Emcee for the event will be Emily Gallagher, college counselor and 155th Street Neighborhood Association member.
Jean Bryant, the unofficial LFP poet laureate, has composed a poem especially for the occasion, while her daughter, Linda Strandberg, an accomplished singer, has a delightful musical surprise for the Chief.
The LFP Communicator of the Year Award Dinner will be held Friday evening, November 18, at the Lake Forest Park Civic Club. Doors open at 5:30pm. Seating is limited!
