New Fallen Worker Memorial

Marcia Mills (HQ Communications) and Jim Krocker (Olympic Region Facilities) admire the "jigsaw puzzle" pieces that will soon become the new Foundation Worker Memorial in the HQ lobby.

Memorial Foundation pink WSDOT hat continues to get mileage.

Last March Joe Schmidt (pictured) participated in Fireman's Columbia Tower climb in Seattle. The Memorial Foundation was honored to help sponsor Joe and Ryan Hilton in the event.
At 788 feet of vertical elevation, the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle stands as the second tallest building west of the Mississippi. It takes 69 floors of stairs and 1,356 steps to reach the observation deck overlooking the city. Firefighters race up the stairs in full fire gear and air masks to help raise funds and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). This year, over 1,900 firefighters from 300 different departments competed in the event, making it the single largest firefighting competition in the world!


New Dahlia Collection
Introducing a New Dahlia Collection honoring one of the WSDOT Fallen Workers.

It's called the Billy 'Bud' Rhynalds' Worker Memorial Collection and it's made up of a collection of oranges and one red Cornel dahlia, which was Billy's favorite.
