Hello all - The minutes from the June 18 SWONA meeting have been added to the Meeting Minutes folder on the left hand side of the main page.  Unfortunately, no one volunteered to run for any of the expired board positions so we will keep pushing on until someone else steps up.  In the meantime, here is some recent news on masks and testing.  Keep safe out there!



Thurston County Emergency Management is distributing over 128,000 cloth face masks to local organizations so they can pass them on to low-income families and individuals.

People seeking masks in Thurston County who can’t afford to buy them should contact the organizations where they’re being distributed, according to county spokesperson Meghan Porter. 

The following organizations are slated to receive masks to distribute:

·       Thurston County Food Bank
