Event at the Northwest Railway Museum

I'm passing this information along to readers who might be interested in supporting our neighbors to the east, the Northwest Railway Museum:

January 21, 2010 (SNOQUALMIE, WA) – This spring, the Northwest Railway Museum’s bi-annual benefit promises to be a culture and history-filled evening, featuring a delicious dinner, prize-winning author and local entertainment. You are cordially invited to join us for Working on the Railroad, Friday, March 5, 2010. The event will be held at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge, 36005 SE Ridge St., Snoqualmie, WA. Featuring excerpts from the Museum’s newest exhibit, Wellington Remembered, the tickets-only event includes a no-host bar, hors d’ oeuvres and dinner. Jim Kelly, Executive Director of 4Culture, and a leader in the arts and historic preservation field, has graciously consented to emcee the evening’s line-up of activities. A musical interlude will be provided by the Issaquah Singers, who have prepared a songbook of railroad themed music. A brief auction of selected big ticket items will precede the feature presentation of the evening. Gary Krist will present a slide show and conversation about his book, The White Cascade. A skilled storyteller, Krist is able to spellbind the reader, all the while informing with fact and painting with details. “[He] describes the frantic rescue efforts, the mounting fears of the passengers, and the malevolent, unending storm, in a thrilling, climactic chapter, he conjures forth the avalanche and its aftermath.” -The New York Times

Tickets are $100 and can be purchased at the Snoqualmie Depot or by phone at 425.888.3030 x202.
