2022 GGHI Legislative Send-Off moves to virtual format

After originally announcing that the upcoming 2022 Legislative Send-Off would be held in-person, Greater Grays Harbor, Inc. has adjusted the event to an online format.

In an announcement on the official Facebook event page, GGHI says that the Legislative Send-Off will move to a virtual format, and this has updated pricing for anyone interested in participating.

The announcement was made earlier in December that the yearly event would be in-person to hear from local legislators on Friday, January 7th from 10-11:30am, prior to the start of the Legislative Session on Monday, January 10. 

This is an opportunity to hear about priorities the officials have going into the session.
