Enumclaw Centennial Dinner event celebrates past, present and future | Slideshow
More than 300 people attended the Enumclaw centennial dinner and celebration, an event that included local speakers and presentations from Mayor Liz Reynolds, King County Executive Dow Constantine and King County Councilman Reagan Dunn.
The Allegro Women’s Ensemble sang the National Anthem and the Muckleshoot Canoe Family sang and danced.
Muckleshoot elder Virginia Cross gave a Native American greeting and Louise Poppleton, author of “There is Only One Enumclaw,” discussed the history of Enumclaw.
Along with remembrance from the past, Enumclaw School District students gave presentations of the history of the area and the future of the town.
Reynolds recognized the mayors from the city’s 1913 incorporation to the present. Reynolds is the first woman to serve as mayor of the city. Along with Reynolds, former mayor George Rossman was present. He served a pair of four-year terms, leaving office at the close of 2001.
Constantine and Dunn offered a proclamation recognizing the city’s centennial celebration.
Darrel Miller was master of ceremonies and Dan Wilson, pastor for Hope Lutheran Church, gave the blessing.
Enumclaw residents approved incorporation Jan. 27, 1913. It was the second time it went before voters.
