January 2015 Volume LI Number 1

First Timers' Reception Thursday, May 21 5:30 6:30 pm

Join other first-time Annual Session attendees at this reception to make new acquaintances from your district or mingle with old friends. The AAPD board of trustees welcomes you to AAPD 2015!

Welcome Reception: TRIFECTA: EMP, Chihuly and Space Needle Thursday, May 21 7 10 pm

Seattle Center—three of the spectacular venues synonymous with Seattle with exclusive access for AAPD with interactive entertainment connecting the event through the public spaces. The EMP Museum, a modern ode to the music experience, is the hub of the venues and anchors the theme and music presentations for the satellite venues. Check out the 365 degree panoramic views from Puget Sound to downtown Seattle on the Observation Deck of the Space Needle as well as marvel at the glass masterpieces at the mesmerizing and recently opened Chihuly Glass and Gardens Museum. Each unique venue has something to stimulate the senses and create a memorable experience!

Of course, we will be tasting our way through Seattle with the Memorial Day inspired offerings that will include a Pacific NW focus on ingredients. Each of the venues provide an added bonus of allowing guests to travel to and from the event via the monorail (built for the World's Fair in 1962) which connects downtown to the Seattle Center.

5k Fun Run Friday, May 22 6:30 7:30 am

Join in the fun! Get outside and experience the Pacific Northwest views and big air. Myrtle Edwards Park, which is located on the water's edge along Elliott Bay, has fantastic views of the Olympics Mountains, Mount Rainier (when it's out!), and Puget Sound. The park is located less than two miles from the Washington State Convention Center and easily accessible from downtown. The park is named after the former president of the City Council, Myrtle Edwards. Edwards was always at the forefront of campaigns and programs to preserve Seattle's natural beauty and to enhance it with new parks, planting and sculpture.

Presidents' Farewell Dinner Sunday, May 24 6:30 10:30 pm Fremont Studios
Steampunk! Tonight, you will be entrenched in a visual experience that delights the senses, entertains the goer, and engages the viewer. This theme ties Victorian/Edwardian era aesthetic and industrialization together with a sci-fi edge for an exploration of creative anachronism that permeates the décor, entertainment, and food and beverage presentations. Clock faces, cogs and gears, Edison bulbs and candelabra fashioned from copper pipe and fittings are collaged with loose blooms, flowing branches and glowing candles. Reception is sponsored by Treloar & Heisel Dinner is sponsored by MAM
