2.  Historical Marker Dedication by the DAC on 9/15 - The Washington State Daughters of the American Colonists (DAC) will be dedicating a historical marker at the Red Brick Road Park in Bothell at 2:00 PM, Friday, September 15. DAC President Maralyn Ricketts lives in Mukilteo and is very active with the DAC. This event is open to the public, but Maralyn has specifically invited LOSCHO members to attend this dedication. This marker commemorates the Seattle to Bothell part of the Military Highway constructed in the Washington Territory during 1856-1864 from Fort Vancouver to Fort Bellingham. 

The Friday afternoon dedication is the “kick off” for the DAC State Convention at the Bothell Country Inn and Suites. Maralyn said that LOSCHO members are also welcome to attend the Friday evening program that will start about 6:45 PM (after the DAC has their Convention Dinner). The program will be about the historical markers in Washington State that the DAC has dedicated over the years.
If you are interested in the Friday afternoon dedication and/or the Friday evening program, an RSVP to me would help with logistics (basically, how many chairs to set up in each area).
