Your State Officers have committed to a new event in multiple regions concentrating on community service work. The 2014 WCTSMA Fall Kick-Off Community Service Day will launch at Moses Lake High School September 22, 2014. WCTSMA is teaming with The Inland Northwest Blood Center on this community service blood drive. Nearly 60% of the blood center's supply of blood comes from community drives like ours. Members can sign up soon to give blood at www.Inbcsaves.org. Your State Officers hope to present valuable information regarding WCTSMA activities and events at the site. They are also planning on an educational segment to be part of this day. Activities are scheduled to run 10am to 1pm in Moses Lake. More information to follow shortly.
Your new WCTSMA State Officers showed what they were made of by leading activities at Summer Leadership 2014 at Kayak Point Park in Stanwood. After introductions, the fun started with ice breaker activities such as criss cross, tiro, and name ball toss. Leadership activities included skeleton build, Helium sticks, water balloon toss, Gatorade and taping relays. WCTSMA members were treated to a sunny BBQ presented by the BOD grill masters. Finally, awards were presented to WCTSMA members who demonstrated leadership throughout the day. Awards were presented by the State Officer Board. All members received a WCTSMA leadership pin for participation.
Please welcome your new State Officers straight off of training at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound.
The new student board has impressed your BOD with their willingness to pursue tasks on their own for planning the upcoming WCTSMA year. Look for some new and exciting events being planned by your new student leadership board.
WCTSMA will kick-off 2014-2015 with Summer Leadership at Kayak Point Park in Stanwood Wednesday August 13, 2014. Our newly trained state officers will lead the activities both educational and fun. As always there will be water activities and a BBQ to feed the troops. It would be great to see 10-20 schools participating in this great WCTSMA event. Look for the registration on the Summer Leadership page. You can contact me directly if you need the information right away as school is winding down.
