Lecture series at WICA reflects well on community


The overwhelming success of the recent three-part lecture series on the U.S. Constitution at WICA reflects well on a community of active learners and committed citizens. People came from Camano Island, Oak Harbor, Coupeville, Everett, Bellingham and Seattle, seeking to deepen their understanding of the foundational document of our government. Our lecturer, Professor Andrew Siegel of Seattle University Law School, provided context, depth and nuance about a complicated subject.

All three lectures have been videotaped. After some refinements, they should be available in the next month for viewing. Details are being worked out to make them as widely available as possible.

In putting this together, many people offered encouragement and help, but I’d especially like to thank Nancy Nordhoff, WICA Board members Debra Campbell and Judy Morton, Barbara Seitle and the Whidbey Island League of Women Voters, Doug Kelly and the Island County Bar Association, Marti Anamosa and Sno-Isle Libraries, Skagit Valley Community College, Margaret Andersen and Bob Wolters, Toni Tully and the great staff of WICA. Thanks also to Maureen Murphy at Bayview Farm and Garden for decorating the stage. Last but never least, I thank my husband Mike for his support as this idea went from just an idle thought to three packed houses.
