WPRF hosted our 7th Annual Mixer and Awards Presentation on December 2nd at the Roeder Home in Bellingham. The Foundation hosts this annual event to thank our supporters for another successful year and to present the William J. Dittrich Award. The Foundation chose to honor Pete Kremen as the Dittrich Award recipient for 2014. During Councilman Kremen’s four consecutive terms as County Executive, the County added 21 parks to the Whatcom County Park system. The most recent was completed after his last term in office. This latest project, the land reconveyance around Lake Whatcom, added over 8,000 acres of land to the park, protecting the watershed and critical wildlife habitats.
