The Procession of the Species Gala at the Red Lion Hotel on April 4 was a success. Members of the Olympia City Council, state Sen. Karen Fraser, and supporters from the area celebrated 21 years of the Procession of the Species. Anyone in Olympia knows about the Procession and the 30,000 people that attend. This year the Procession is on April 25. Thank you to Olympia parks and staff to organize ArtsWalk and the Procession every year. It is time to help support a studio for children like the city has done in the past. The economic gains of 30,000 customers is valuable to Olympia.
