If you were here in 2015, you know when Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church began, because that was the year we celebrated the 100th anniversary of our founding in 1915. This year, though, we’ve reached another 100-year landmark: the 100th anniversary of our incorporation. Kim Wyman, Washington’s Secretary of State, recently wrote to us saying “… incorporations [in 1920] were either delivered by horseback, steam wheeler or train. Because few owned cars, and the roads outside of Olympia were virtually impassible, incorporating a business was quite an adventure. Of the nearly 3500 incorporations filed in 1920, only 35 exist today and you are part of that small group.”
Happy incorporation anniversary to us – all signs point to another exciting hundred years!
