Annual Tour of Seattle Food Businesses
Learn about careers in the food related industry.  This year we will be touring Food Services of America, Kenco Foodservice , and Continental Mills (makers of the Krusteaz line of baked mixes).  Lunch will be provided.  A panel of food professionals will also be at lunch to talk about careers in the food industry.  We will leave CWU at about 8AM and return at about 5PM.

October 20, 2005 (Thursday)
Hike the Ridge!
We are meeting outside, underneath the Breeze Through Cafe' at 7:40AM, so we can be hiking at 8AM!  If you need a ride, contact Suzie ASAP at 963-8290, otherwise transportation needs to be arranged on your own.  Since we will all be hiking at different paces, if only half the hike can be completed to make it back to a 10AM class, that is fine.  Get yourself out of bed, it will be worth it!  Bring a friend!
