Participating CDQ groups hosted a dinner during the Council week. Crab, halibut, sablefish, shrimp and oysters were prepared perfectly, and enhanced by fresh, homemade salads and desserts. The dinner provided a great opportunity for those involved in the Council process to relax in a beautiful setting, enjoy superb food, and engage in lively conversation. Many thanks to all the volunteers who took time to grill, cook, bake and arrange this event for the public and the Council family. We truly appreciate the efforts by the five CDQ groups and their respective staff, and in particular, Heather McCarty and Angel Drobnika, for their efforts in organizing this very special and successful event.
