Congresswoman Suzan DelBene is headed to Point Roberts to check in with the community and recognize the coordinated efforts of local agencies that saved a life.
“The congresswoman wants to hear what constituents are saying and give folks an update about what she’s been working on,” said communications director Ramsey Cox.
The August 12 forum will begin at 3 p.m. at the Gulf Road Community Center with some brief remarks from DelBene followed by a question and answer period with the audience.
Following the forum, DelBene will head to the Benson Road fire station where a commendation ceremony will begin at 4:30 p.m. The ceremony will “recognize the inter-agency efforts and coordination that saved the life of a visitor at the Point Roberts border crossing on June 7,” Cox said.
To accommodate the ceremony, the fire district’s regular monthly meeting will be rescheduled to 3 p.m. on that day.
