With the start of the new year came the re-start of hopes for a more "normal" BFSRA schedule.
Our first BFSRA Luncheon in almost two years took place on January 10, 2022, with approximately 60 BFSRA members and guests in attendance at the Pasco Red Lion, which will serve as the location of BFSRA Luncheons through May 2022. This luncheon featured our Superintendents' Panel (Dr. Traci Pierce - Kennewick SD; Dr. Michelle Whitney - Pasco SD; Dr. Shelley Redinger - Richland SD), and was also available to all members via Zoom.
The February 28th BFSRA Luncheon featured a visit with Meriwether Lewis (disguised as member Glen Allison!) who shared his experiences and travels with Captain William Clark. E-8 Representative Sharon Hosely gave an update on current work at the local and state levels.

Our third Luncheon of 2022 took place on March 28. Our special guest was Elizabeth McLoughlin, Executive Director of the Tri-Cities Cancer Center, who described the amazing work being done there, and answered numerous questions. WSSRA President Bruce Boyer and Executive Director Alan Burke literally flew in with updates on state work, and President-Elect Brad Beal joined on the big screen via Zoom.
Our final luncheon of the 2021-2022 school year will take place on May 23. It will feature our customary Celebration of Life, recognizing those members who have passed on. In addition, unit officers will be installed at this meeting.
