Just when I thought I knew about every major venue in western Washington, WHAM – I get to visit Cedarbrook Lodge. It’s just a few minutes from the Seatac airport.
Wait a minute, because that conjures up the wrong image.
When you’re at Cedarbrook you feel like you’re miles away. For one thing, the building is built more like a retreat center than a hotel. (It should – it was custom designed as Washington Mutual’s corporate training center. It is now under new owners and open to the public.)
The grounds are well-manicured and are a cross between an ornamental flower garden and a private golf course. (It is! According to the Cedarbrook website, “Eighteen lush acres of natural restored wetlands provide an optimal location with the ambiance of a discreet hideaway.”) I can see this being a fantastic location for weddings and outdoor meals during the summer.
I was there performing for the Washington Society of Association Executives. This was the annual awards banquet for the WSAE and members came from all parts of the state (Vancouver, Bellingham, Spokane, you name it).
Donna Cameron, CAE, President of Melby Cameron & Anderson writes:
You were really fabulous! Everyone was talking about how amazing your performance was, and how funny, as well. Patty will be sending you an “official” thank you on WSAE letterhead when she returns from vacation and also looks at the meeting evaluations, but please know that you were quite a hit with WSAE. I’m sure you’ll be hearing from a number of our members who want you to dazzle their own members. Thanks so much for setting the perfect tone for WSAE’s Awards Luncheon!
Thanks to Donna for sharing photos from the banquet, too!
