Weekend Events Highlight Armistice Day Centennial

Optimistically called "the war to end all wars" WWI had dramatic impact on the nation and Washington State that is seen and felt today.  Read Governor Inslee's Proclamation here: /sites/default/files/Governor%20Inslee%27s%20Proclamation%202018%20Veterans%20Day%20and%20World%20War%20I%20Centennial.pdf
