The South Lake Union Community Council was joined by Seattle City Councilmember Sally Bagshaw as it honored the long-time service of outgoing board members Pearl Leung and Dan Foltz and elected new board members at its June monthly meeting, Tuesday, at the Museum of History and Industry at Lake Union Park. During the meeting, Leung and Foltz, who had complete their two full terms on the board, were recognized for their service to the community by SLU Community Council president Mike McQuaid who presented them with original framed art work by noted Seattle "Northwest School" artist William Lee Cumming, the late husband of SLU Community Council board member Dena Lee, as a token of the community’s appreciation.
In his remarks, McQuaid thanked Leung and Foltz for their dedication to the South Lake Union and Cascade neighborhoods quoting author CS Lewis; “If you do one good deed your reward usually is to be set to do another and harder and better one.”
In its annual elections, the South Lake Union Community Council voted Lloyd Douglas, a Cascade neighborhood resident and long-time SLU volunteer along with Ben Grace of Hines on behalf of Amazon.com and former Seattle Deputy Mayor now with Vulcan, Inc., Phil Fujii to board positions.
