As a Bothell resident, I’m writing to tell you about something exciting. Seabeck Conference Center on the Hood Canal in Seabeck, Wash. is celebrating its 100th year serving the Pacific Northwest this month. That’s a full century of providing space for retreat, renewal and tranquility for non-profit organizations seeking to bring people together. I am a proud board member of this organization.
In its long history, Seabeck Conference Center has been host to bag piper workshops, Buddhist silent retreats, an annual national deaf/blind camp, Haiku workshops, family camps, AA group retreats, quilter retreats and folk dance workshops to name a few.
If you haven’t ever been to Seabeck, I encourage you to visit (www.seabeck.org) and if you haven’t been in a while, you may be surprised to see how much it’s changed. You will find a modern and comfortable retreat with updated facilities, renovated meeting spaces and several new buildings ready to meet an organization’s needs all nestled in a spectacular setting on the Hood Canal.
As a volunteer board member myself I believe in the work being done there—Serving those who serve others. Seabeck Conference Center has been proud to provide the Pacific Northwest a beautiful meeting space where non-profits representing a diversity of cultures, beliefs, ages and geography have shared important experiences for 100 years. Not too many organizations on the West Coast have celebrated this milestone.
Please join me in wishing this special organization a Happy 100th Birthday.
Arnie Marcus, Bothell
